Taking advantage of BRS's sales to finally start my big reef build. This is going to take a while. I'm going to go with a Marineland 220 and am hoping for a sale on them. But I picked up a skimz 202 skimmer, and a Trigger Triton44 sump. Still have lights, return pump, and water storage to go as well. The plan is to make a 9' long built-in stand that can hold a 220, as well has my 40 breeder planted tank. I plan on using the triton method on this tank, as that appeals to me the most, and many people seem to be having a fair amount of luck with it. I've verified that Marineland's 220 pre-drilled 1" overflows should be able to just meet triton's 10X turnover rate. The current main issue, is that my 40 is in the way, and thus preventing me from building. Other problems are that I have 3 koi in a 75 who are out growing it, and need a place to live until me and a couple of bags of concrete can give them a place stay outside in the spring. I've been directed by my SO to use the 220 to keep them until that time. Given the amount of time required to save up for the various things like lights and pumps, I don't think this is a horrible idea. If everything goes according to plan, I should be able to put some marine fish into the tank by this time next year. I'm still undecided on substrate and scaping. I'll probably go for a mixed coral in the end, and livestock is currently undecided as well. Though my wife does have her eye on a leopard wrasse. messy basement before shot:
Hello! My actual tank is quite hard to maintain due to some mistakes I did when I was starting. All life is doing good but I decided to build a new tank, a little bigger and prepared for the Triton Method. Specs: - Tank: Custom 40g tank 30 x 24 x 14 - Sump: Custom 26 x 16 x 12 - Light: 2x AI Hydra 26 - Circulation: 2x WAV Pumps 1x MP10QD - Skimmer: Skimz SN123 Nyos 120 - Return Pump: Sicce SDC 7.0 I'm still working on plumbing. Once I finish I'll move to the correct spot.
