New Marine Tank in Limerick

Permanent Linkby adamswiatek on 20 Sep 2014 18:12

I would like to introduce me next project ( third one) of Reef Tank in 600 Liters. This will be the biggest tank I have compering to previous tanks ( 54 Litr. and 275 Litr.)
I made a drawings and bought all eqiupments so far. Now waiting for the glass and cabinet. Whole my project is made in Poland in my friend's glass-plant.
Here are a few drawings made by me showing what is project about:

A little bit about equpiment I want to use in the new project:
Skimmer: Royal Exclusiv Bubble King 200 mini
Lights: 8xT5 54Watts from Pacyfic Sun
Return pump: AquaNova 6500L/h
Wave makers: 2xTunze 6095 and Tunze 6105 with Tunze controler 7096
All in One Pallet Reaktor.

I want to run the system basing on dry MarcoRocks supported with Siporax in sump. Im planning to keep SPS and a few LPS in the tank, so all necessary things like food, salt, components etc, will be used from AquForest to keep one brand in time.

I will update my blog regurally about any news in the process.

All comments very welcome.

Thanks for wishes. I had LED in previous tank and the light was fine for soft and most LPS which I had. I couldn't grow any SPS. I searched many reef forums and decided to run a new system basing on T5 lights, because the most feedbacks from owners of really impresove SPS tanks say that T% is very good light for that kind of corals.

Ya i also read this about acan corals losing colour under led's, and they have to add t5's with led's, to get colour back.

Looking forward to updates :)

Have you got your wave makers yet and if so what are they like? I have a custom 620 liter tank and the only thing left are the wave makers but I want something extra special and not sure what to get.

I will use 2 xTunze 6095 pumps with Controler 7096. And a small wave maker Jebao RW-4 to blow behind the rocks.
