Here's my new project
Needs a lot more corals though. Will add pictures as I change things.
I really like the TMC Sig range, especially the 900 size, this is a tank I am contemplating getting.
How old is your set up?
Pop up a write up ref your equipment list, your regime, parameters & livestock.
What other plans do you have for your tank?
I'm not a massive fan of aquaroche type rocks until they colour up & are filled with corals & then they can look really smart. I have a mate who had the saem rock as you & I was not a fan but his set up is 2 years old now so really coloured up & full of corals & it looks mint
Tanks looking good I'm also a massive fan of the tmc signiture range I love the clean crisp look they portray. What's your future stocking plans
Current sump setup is
3kg biohome ultimate, net with RoPhos and net with carbon in second chamber
Bubble Magnus Curve 3.5 skimmer and 300w heater in the third chamber
Return pump forth chamber (and clean filter sock soaking)
This seems to be working well but biohome ultimate apparently needs a few months to work properly. I am keeping an eye on it, both phosphate and nitrate are 0.
2 clown fish
1 yellow tail wrasse
1 Royal Gamma
1 Lawnmower Blenny
2 Blue Chromis
6 Turbo snails
1 Strawberry conch
1 Flame scollop
1 Tuxedo Urchin
Think that's it at the moment.
Will post more pics later on.
Tank is now one month old
Nice tank mate. Im looking at the posibility of changing to either one of these or reefspace 900. The build quality of the stand seems better on these but i like th fact the door lifts off completely on the reefspace. Hows your experiance with it all sofar? Noise, sump design, build etc
Really like it the only real noise is the skimmer, but the sump design has to be worked around. the second chamber for the skimmer is just to small.
It's looking well John & only a month old, you've not hng around have you lol
Love the Stylo Milka & that acan in the centre is a good size
Thanks, the acan and Stylo was from my old tank so were a good size.
Any chance you could tell me the width of the 1st chamber to the right of your skimmer would a skimmer fit in?
That chamber is too small for a skimmer capable of the tanks size, better to use for live rock rubble or similar
Coming along nicely, lot different from the first picBig Thumbs Upi have the tmc 600.nice tanks.
Awesome looking tank John! Thats just how I want mine to look when I eventually set it up in a few weeks time...
How much water do you loose through evaporation with this tank? Do you have any mould issues at the back on the wall?
Two New Radion xr15 pro installed now
No mould issues behind tank, it's about 4inch from the wall so there's good air movement . I am getting through about 20 litres top up a week.
Looking very good ☺ I love my Radion was a great investment ☺
Disaster strikes, either ich or velvet . lost Royal Gamma, Clown Goby and Clown so far. Been treating with Polyp lab Medic since Saturday double dose. Fingers crossed it will sort it out.
Oh no! Sorry to hear that.
