Son's 250 gallon SPS dominant tank!

Recommended Posts

All I saw was tape.....

 

This is looking so nice I'm envious, my tank "room" is a disaster, ADHD has taken over any OCD that may have been present in that little thing I call a brain.

 

Keepin it 100

 

GREAT JOB!!

 

Brads just jealous as there are not 10 three ways all plugged in :laugh:

 

Looking good!

Brought the sump inside and silicon a piece of wood to the stand! That will prevent water from getting under the sump when i spill water!

I did something similar when I had a steel stand but I used acrylic.

I was thinking acrylic too but i got the extra plywood so might as well save some $$ :)

Got the calcium reactor online couple days ago so i can calibrate the pH probe.  Modified the vertex reactor into 2nd chamber for my geo. :)

Turned on RO regal 250sss and this thing is super super quiet and started skimming right away.  There are still alot of micro bubble at the moment due to new tank. 

But i love this skimmer and glad i didn't sell it back then lol

Hooked up the brs dual reactors to run some po4.

Installed the switch for this and my magnetic door panel so that when i remove the panel the sump led will turn on.

Oh yah I picked up couple tanks from petco yesterday! Gonna do tank transfer method for my my fish this time.  Time to think about live stock.  I will probably start out with a shoal of 7-9 chromis to test the water. I'm thinking:

7-9 chromis

5-7 bartlett anthias

1 purple tang

2 yellow tank

1 blue hippo tang

1 Achilles tang (oh ohhh)

1 red sea regal angel (this is a must have fish for me)

Any suggestion is appreciated

That is a fantastic looking setup - everything including the plumbing and electric looks super clean and I love the light.  Congrats on getting it up and running.  Looking forward to seeing it with the livestock!
