I like the sump. It turned out great.
nice sump. Did you make it yourself?
I did not make them. I made the design and Gary Plastics in Santa Cruz did the hard work.
do you mind telling how much? might want to find a new sump
Love your Zoas. man. Great tANK man.
After a long afternoon the new sump is up and running. Had to make a stand for the skimmer to put it a 8". Did some cleaning up of the pipes and just took my time. Here are a few pictures. Enjoy.. ;D
Still to add is some T5 lights over the refuge to make it double as a frag tank. Also might add a few fans above the sump to help with evap.
Please give input..next is a Reefkeeper? Vortech? or Dosing Setup.
Nice Jed! No more problems with an overflowing sump?
No more problems with overflow, now the micro bubbles. If it not one thing is something else.
A filter sock can do wonders on killing your micro bubbles.... that and maybe slow the rate of flow from your refugium into your sump return.
Not having a bubbletrap between your refugium overflow and your pump return chamber can make killing your micro bubbles a little difficult.
Well it has been at least a few months since I have posted on the tank. I have been very busy and have not had time to be online. Well with a little slow down today I figured I would post up an update.
The tank now has T5 over the sump/frag tank. New sump is working perfect and I cleaned up the garage side of things. Just have to add the top-off line and it will be done. Also added a Kalk reactor that I picked up for dirt cheap. Made a big difference in coral growth.
Enjoy the pictures and I will try to get some coral photos up soon.
Full Tank Shot
Very nice and clean setup.
By the way, you still have a DBTC frag from me that you need to pick up. The frag actually grown nicely now with multi branch and nicely encrusting the plug rock. It would be nice to see how it does on a T5. PM, mannn.
Looking good Jed
Hey Jed, can't believe I haven't had a look at your build thread yet but I just stumbled upon it and I really like your setup. I echo everyone else's thoughts in that it's such a clean setup. I envy all of you guys that have a garage where you can hide a lot of the equipment. Being in a small apartment makes things a bit difficult and messy!
Anyway, great looking tank! Keep up the good work!
I don't think he has his tank plumbed to the garage, just in the stand, I like the clean stylings also
very nice. like the setup its very clean.
Some items are plumbed into the garage. It will be much cleaner when I hook up the vortech and the RKE. All I need is time, anyone have some that spare
