Could it be? Well first and formost if you have yet to see round 1 you may find it here: http://www.fishforum.com/saltwater-f...rogress-17236/
The following thread is going to be about my new one, the upgrade, what you've all been waiting for, well really what ive been waiting for
Having had some set backs it should really be happening soon in tandem with painting my room.
This tank is a custom built one with 1/2inch thick glass all around.
It is 60inches long, 18inches wide, 21inches tall making it 98.18 US gallons. Here it sits empty,
So far the plans are:
- Use the sump from previous tank.
- Transfer livestock from previous tank (with possible exception of yellow headed goby)
- Drill back side of tank (if she cracks ill prob. buy a 75 reef ready)
- Use MyReefCreations MR-2 skimmer w/ mag24 pump
- Use icecap 4 bulb t5 light setup with addition of 2 more bulbs
- build stand and canopy
I encourage ALL thoughts, ideas, input, comments, questions through out this thread. This is how we learn and expand so do not be afraid to get involved!
Im planning a "simple stand" for this one however its going to be more detailed then what i currently am using on the 46 which is a plain 2x4 frame. The small window on bottom will be a port hole to view the refugium, i dont know if this is going to be 100% yet, really just gathering thoughts. That panel will most likely be held on with magnets so if need be i can easily access the complete sump/refuge. The cabinet to the right will prob. be added alittle later on so can get my things inside the tank settled and in. Thats mainly going to be a place to store test kits and chemicals. I have another idea in my head where the lights are on a track so they can slide out of the way but i might just keep it simple.
Its prob. going to look more along the lines of this:
