1000L mixed reef

Permanent Linkby Glenn 10 on 19 Apr 2011 23:09

I'd like to use this opportunity to introduce myself to this forum.
I am obsessed with fish keeping ever since I bought that goldfish called Fish 10 years ago. For the last 4 years I've moved to salt water aquariums and more recently I'm obsessing about keeping sps corals in particular.
I love to know how it all works from the nitty gritty chemistry and biology to the electronics and mechanics. Most of my stuff is DIY from the tank to controls to supplementing. I pride myself in things like being able to do a water change by pressing a button. Could put it on a timer if I wanted to but that's just lazy. :D

Here is a picture of my latest labour of love.
Image

Display ....... 1000L
Sump ......... 300L
Lights .........2* 400w MH, 2* 150w MH, 6* 40w T8's actinics
Temp......... 25 deg C
Salinity ...... 1.026
Alkalinity ..... 8 - 9 dkh
Calcium ....... 410ppm
Magnesium ... 1290 - 1360
Nitrate ........ 0.4ppm ( last time tested )
Phosphate ..... 0ppm ( last time tested )

Thanks for the comments lads. I'm off for the weekend but I'll take some pics when I get back. I don't have any fancy equipment it's mostly DIY stuff but I'll take some pics for your amusement.
