Thanks Edi, I actually had to make one small modification this weekend because the second level was a little to high and the frags were getting a little too much PAR.

I'll post a pic this evening.

Hi Rachid, looking great. One thing I would caution about the frag rack and maybe I just can’t see the whole thing. The one top on the pipe will start letting detritus go through and it will accumulate inside the pipe. I have personally witnessed it with mine, although the are much wider then yours. Just something to watch out for or keep in mind. Love the new additions btw.

Regards

Great eye man because I’m already currently dealing with it lol. I think I might plug the top so not to much ditritus can get down there. I also have a few wholes in the bottom and some of the top sides that can let the air out.

Anyhow good call, and I’m usually pretty good about taking the racks out and cleaning them out.

Thanks again boss!

Hi everyone, I’ve been meaning to share this on my thread and I don’t think I ever got around to it so here it goes. After my huge crash on December 2017, I told myself I would do things the right way and getting these two 50 gallon vertical water chambers was key! Left one makes the salt water and the right one always has rodi ready for me. I used 3 pumps, a heater and a Vectra L1 to make water in minutes! This setup has made weekly water changes for me so easy. I want to enhance it and automate it even more over time. I would love to get an old Apex classic on heat to have salinity and temperature check as I make water.

I also have an 8 stage RODI unit where I removed silicates with a silicate remover just to be safe and make sure I’m not feeding any diatoms if possible.

Feel free to leave a comment, questions or your pics of your water change system. I’m always intrigued to see how people like to make their lives easier.

Stoury's 220 Gallon Mixed Reef Tank

So I took out the Nems from my small display tank under the stand decided I needed to give it a make over. Post pics to come later this week! I know that the clam and hammer are definitely going on here. Let’s see what other color I decide to add.

Finally done. The 30 gallon below the tank came in really nicely.
