:-dOk folks in keeping with the current trend of pre tank threads I figured I would start one too. The tank has been ordered and will arrive in about a months time and will measure up at 115x24x30(tall) with a central weir with 2 40mm drains. The first stage of filtration will be a large VAT which will have filter socks to get the larger waste out before it enters the sump. The VAT will also double up as a 'waste' VAT during water changes and I will have the same sized VAT ready with a mix of salt water to go back in to the system. The water will then flow from the VAT to a remote sump located in the cupboard underneath the stairs where it will have a DSB, chaetto, bubble magus NAC9 skimmer, 2 eheim jaeger 300w heaters (controlled with an ATC 800+), D&D phosphate reactor and I will use a sequence 10,000 return pump. I will also have my ATU tank with a reefloat ATU. The tank will be light with 3 250w lumenarcs on a 3 plug timer and will be have a 'sun' style timing. IE. Left comes on at 9am centre at 9.30am and right 10am. The left will the turn off at 7pm, centre at 7.30pm and right 8pm. (Times just an example) Blue lighting from a 4ft LED bar I got from Carl to supplement, thanks Carl didn't know you liked LED's mate. Once the phosphate and nitrate levels are at a lower level and maintainable due to having 50 less fish I will start adding 'plants'.
