R-3's Official 37G Oceanic Cube Thread

Recommended Posts

Okay so here is the start of my new tank thread. I just got it today up in WA. Its a 24.5x18.5x21 37G Oceanic Cube w/corner overflow box drilled in the back. Only cost me $100 w/stand. I also bought a 24" Current Outer Orbit HQI 150w,2 65WPC, and 4 moonlights light setup.

 

Here are some pics of it. I still gotta clean it Ill paint the back tonight.

I got the tank all cleaned up and even put some "orange oil" stuff on the stand. Then I painted the side where the overflow was and the back. Looks good. A lot better than being able to see through it. I gotta go get a 10G for a temporary sump and some sand so I can get it setup tomorrow. Im gonna borrow Reefin's CPR Bakpak for the time being till I sell my other stuff. Heres some pics

 

Somewhat clean, :)

Im going to be tearing down my 75 and putting the "choice" corals I have and selling the rest. As for the livestock im gonna be putting everything I have now in the 37. This includes a true percula, green chromis, yellow watchman, 6 line wrasse, and a pygmy angel. Im gonna see how those guys adjust before I think about adding anything. I think I might just stay with what I got.

 

UPDATES- I got the tank plumbed with a temp sump (10G AGA) till I build the new one. Im gonna put water in it right now. Later Ryan

I filled it with water last night to make sure the tank had no leaks. Everything was good. So I filled the sump up and I am wet testing it right now. Plumbing has no leaks (so far) Ill let this set for a day or so and then moveit in to the house. Here are some pics. I also need to build a sump this week. the 10G will work for now. The return is also temp tillI go get my Seaswirl form Keith.

Here are some pics

 

Here are some updated pics. The only rock I have in it right now is the stuff that was in my sump. I still havent taken any out of the tank. I think I might cook that rock before I put it in there. Ohh yeah I have it temporarily setup in my computer/office/where everything else goes till I put the hardwodd floor in my living room and kitchen this next week.

 

Heres a pic with just the 2 65wPCs and 4 3/4w LEDS. When I get the other rock cooked I will do some aquascaping.

I got the 1000 hooked up tonight. Man this thing rips. I cant wait to see what type of gunk this yanks out. Im already getting a ton of foam and Ive only been setup for 2 hours. I like these skimmers! I lost my SD card to my camera "OOps" so it will be awhile till I find it. Then I will post some pics. LAter Ryan
