I've been meaning to start a tank thread since the birth of this tank in January, I initially took a trip out to Burscough with the plan of ordering one of the red sea reefer tanks as a replacement for my old and tired 4 foot tank, whilst there I noticed an eareef tank Steve had on display so with many ££ spent we went away to await delivery of our new eaReefPro1500s, and a few other goodies. The original plan was to put it in the dining room but Amanda decided it would be best in the living room where we could always see it, and what Amanda wants, Amanda gets,, (you all know how it is) problem was there wasn't a suitable spot in the living room to put it. ''You'll sort it'' she said, you bet I will I thought so took a week off work and while she was out demolished the wall between the living room and spare bedroom (Bungalow) and built a new stud wall further back and managed to get it plastered and the wall where the new tank was going decorated just in time for the delivery. Tank brought in by Steve and his lad,, no way I could have done it on my own. a few goodies he brought with him All the house bashing was put on hold while the tank was cycled using ATM colony and some live rock I had maturing in a spare tank in the now smaller spare bedroom, I think it was only a week later and I swapped all the fish and corals over to the new tank and with much effort dragged the old tank outside and demolished the rest of the living room wall. Old tank sent to a wintery grave. Now to remove the rest of the wall,a bit if protection needed for the new tank. Wall Gone, a good job even if I say so myself, Cant say the same for the dog, he looks fed up. full tank shot as it was at the beginning of march Around mid March we introduced a small Kole tang, unfortunately that brought with it a parasite, possibly Ich or maybe velvet, either way by the time we spotted it, it was too late, in the space of two days we lost 6 green chromis, coral beauty, the kole tang, a Royal grammar, both clowns and a little rock damsel which was the first fish we ever bought nearly 7 years ago and a jewel tang. the only fish left was a regal tang, cleaner wrasse and a file fish for two months we added no more fish and just kept an eye on three we had left. Since then we have slowly started to add some fish back. we now have the Regal Tang, Kole Tang, another nice big Jewel Tang, cleaner wrasse, File fish, Hawk fish, Coral Beauty, and a pair of clown fish. Equipment, Tank. The tank is lit by 3 Kessil A360s and the kessil controller Maxpect gyre XF150 with smart controller, Sump Jecod 8000 return pump, two Schego 300w titanium heaters and a simplyaquaria controller and for added piece of mind a STC100 sat on the mantelpiece with the probe in the tank so I can see the temperature at a glance. Deltec SC1456 skimmer, D-D H20 reactor running roaphos Reefloat ATU, there's also a float switch on the top up section of the sump piped directly from the RO filter in the Kitchen so it can be topped up nice and easily, Kamoer 3 channel dosing pump dosing for calcium, alkalinity and nopox, magnesium is dosed through the ATU as and when needed. Some random pics as of today. The view from my chair. my one and only SPS frag. If someone could put all the pictures the right way up it would be much appreciated,, Thanks.
