    Expect to order the tank this week
    The prices are in for the tank and stand

    Quite surprised how many companies/shops don't even respond to a request for a quotation

    most of the corals and fish will be transferred

    Still thinking about the best sump layout
    This time I shall use a Skimmer and a reactor with BioPellets whilst retaining a Cheato Fugue

    Fancy a change this time

    Re: The Extension


    decided not too, looks like loads of hassle, leaks, cutting pipes etc

    going for 2 Moceans Marine and reef keeping specialist
    on the DC 12,000 return pumps Marine and reef keeping specialist
    May add a pair of Eductor, Product Review: Eductors For Water Motion In A Reef Tank — Advanced Aquarist | Aquarist Magazine and Blog what kind of flow I get after the head losses from the sump in the garage

    to begin with transferring the MP40s and WP60 once the old system is broken down

    longer term looking at the soon to be launched Maxspect Gyre, MaxSpect Gyre Pump gets details and some pricing revealed
    just want to see if you can set it to a tidal flow, 6 hours each way to make a Gyre current, with the Moceans making the wave action 19,000 Ltrs of laminar flow should be fab

    I can hide the Maxspect Gyre in a vertical orentation

    Re: The Extension

    Hi Gary,
    sounds great, similar size to my tank, took 6 of us to lift it and it was so heavy! we only had to move it 5 foot, is it being made on site or coming complete? otherwise it going to be fun up those steps Big Thumbs Up, if you need a lift with anything just ask! spare tank, new ro water to help, spare 300watt heaters etc.
    Gordon.

    Thanks Gordon

    start weight training LOL

    it's being built off site the premium was very high for a BOS

    need some kind of a dolly to move the tank, it will come in via the side gate and Patio, not trough the F/Door that would be just too difficult,
    its also why the depth is 785mm the gate is 800 mm after moving the uprights
