Discussion in 'Large Tanks (101gal+)' started by Eaval, Jul 1, 2017.
So some of the features and reasoning:
6x 63mm grills in false weir are to reduce the water level in the tank whilst allowing large water volume to overflow the true weir. Should allow plenty of crud to build up before the water level starts to rise.
They are fitted with a touch of silicone so that they can be easily twisted out and removed for cleaning. I also have another set to swap in to allow vinegar soaking etc.
The top weir comb is removeable so that I can scrub it in the sink. Like the grills I also have a spare to allow vinegar soaking.
Very nice there looks top notch.
I like your scape,lots of swim space and lots of areas for coralsBig Thumbs Up
That looks ace Big Thumbs Up
Scape is just right!.

Ok so transferred over my remaining livestock from the big blue tub.
There has been one heck of a butchers bill to pay. Herebis what DIDNT make it:
1x female blue throat trigger
1x large yellow tang (owned for over 8 yrs)
2x black leopard wrasse
1x cleaner wrasse
2x mytrax crabs
2x pistol shrimps
Multiple hermit crabs
So what did I manage to keep alive?
1x male blue throat trigger (adult)
2x watchman gobies
1x bangaii (female)
1x vampire tang (juvenile)
Also moved over where the corals I kept at home, my rics and a gorg.
Picked up 2x tester sps this week too.
Limeberry hystric and guttus frag .
Pics to follow later once lights come on

So picked up some of my bits from Ahmed. A VERY local (non sponsor) LFS to me who not only lent me 2x very large blue tubs and also housed my nems and some of my better halfs Zoas etc.
Unfortunately the yellow tang didnt make it, but I genuinely dont think anyone would of been able to save her. She was in a dreadful state stressed out in the tub when I took her in. Really couldnt adjust to her new life. When at his shop all the wounds healed and the fins healed in a couple of weeks. Really thought we had done it. However her eye fell out and then death followed very quickly
Anyway also a thank you for the help and advice.
Most of the stock is now camera shy. Guess its going to take some time living in a glass box again.
Strange seeing a peppermint shrimp out in the open though!!!
Sad news about your Yellow Tang a real shame.
At least you can see yours lol. Mine iare in my bloody weirbox. Still had no luck getting them out plus i have aips they could be eating also

Well I managed to get a third light via a well known auction site we all love and hate.
Ecotech live says its a Gen3 PRO rather than my standard Gen 3's which I wasnt expecting. Sorry I dont know how to check either way, but if it is what a complete bonus
Anyway so Im now powered by 3x MP40WES and 3x Radion Gen3's
Yellow tail tamarin is in the bottom right corner.
The observant amongst you will also see a few new frags too
