  1. hi all, Very early stages at the moment but this is my next project, so I'm still planning things and I'm open to any input so if you have an idea to contribute please do so. ( sorry if the pictures dont work) the tank... so you may or may not be able to see in that pic, but the idea(whether its possible or not i dont know yet) is to have the back wall of the tank a little lower than the rest and to be a wall to wall overflow which runs in to an external overflow box also the full length of the tank; and then drained by 1 complete siphon, 1 partial flow and 1 emergency exit pipe.. this is something i will have to investigate with the tank builder as i dont think its something i can do myself and have it be reliably strong or if its even possible to be done.? the overflow will be topped with a plastic mesh of some sort wrapped around black egg crate to keep livestock out etc; not a fan of the flow restrictions the comb style weirs work. it would also be easily removable so i can slide it out for cleaning. the stand.. so for the stand i want to have a "shelf" of about 10cm around the tank and to try and keep it light weight. im thinking that to do so i should get a steel stand built and then top it with a timber frame and wrap it in marine ply or MDF. dimensions would ideally be 1400w x 800l x 600h for steel stand if anyone is a skilled steel fabricator or knows one? the hood... no idea, all i know is AI Prime is just too good; it was the first programmable light I've ever owned so I guess I'm biased; I'd like to run 2 of those plus t5s on a timer for a few hours in midday. the sump... Probably made out of a spare 3x1ft tank i have here. hopefully that will be big enough for to fit everything in that way i can get the chiller inside the cabinet too. or something along those lines. might be able to split return pump output to feed reactors and chiller; chiller plumbing will be sump entry, tank exit - doesnt make sense to do it any other way as its basically a free powerhead..?. still undecided on whether ill use UV steriliser. 1ft cube ATO. skimmer requirements: quiet, NOT an aquaone G series. powerheads/ wavemakers: if i can score a cheap MP series id do that, + something with good directional maneuverability that is quiet dont know how ill setup dosing - either way will eventually move to an automated system dont know if i will be using an aquarium controller but again if i get score a cheap one i wont hesitate; although its not on the kickstarter list this is all going to be a long process but i will continue to update as i go. any feedback on my overflow idea? is it possible? anyone able to price a stand for me? 1400w x 800l x 600h steel
  2. We have a variety of live corals and they start from just $15 - available in store only. They just came in yesterday afternoon and have not had time to open up when I took the pick but they are coming out now and looking even better.
  3. .Hey guys, thought i might start a thread for my current project. Its a 3x2x2 G&J Maher tank, cabinet and hood purchased 2nd hand from a workmate with a custom racetrack sump to fit the cabinet. I decided to buy this setup from my mate to move the inhabitants of my 4x15x18 running off an aquaone marisys for the past 2 years to get a little more high tech and have a crack at some sps corals again. strike up date: 12/10/2014 water: RODI/salt mix lighting: 160w dim-able full spectrum bridgelux led fitting (china ebay) on 12hr timer circulation: tunze nanostream 6020 and hydor koralia nano 1200 (soon to be either jebao rw4 x2 or a maxspect gyre) skimmer: reef octopus DNW-110 (soon to be marine sources RDC-850 monster skimmer) sump: 3 chamber racetrack, 1st chamber filter sock, marine pure bio-spheres and skimmer, 2nd chamber DSB, refugium with chaeto and caulerpa, 3rd chamber chemipure blue, 300w heater and 3000lph return pump fuge lighting: 14w full spectrum led on opposite schedule to display tank top up: manual RO (soon to be smart ATO) dosing: manually dosing Aqua Vitro calcium, magnesium, iodide, trace elements and 8.4 ph buffer and testing with API reef master kit and salifert testers. (soon to be kamoer 4ch dosing pump and hanna checker test kits) Tank Stock 1x niger trigger, 1x coral beauty, 1x lawnmower blenny, 1x snowflake eel (eaten a few of my fish now resides in the refugium til i find him a new home) 4x strombus snails, 2x trochus snails, 6x turbo snails, 2x cowrie snails and about 20x glass shrimp from kings beach rock pools that escaped the triggers wrath... 1x catty, 1x favia, 2x trachy, 2x lobo, 1x toadstool, 1x colt, 1x acan, 4x zoa colonies, a few pallys and bright red mushrooms and a small green sps that started as a spec on some liverock and has grown to about a 20c piece size, i have since fragged it off the rock and am hoping better placement will boost its growth so i can ID it better. anyways pics to follow all comments and questions welcome ! old vs new
  4. hey guys i've been on this Forum for a while and made a thread in the General Discussion, so i thought i'd transfer it to here unsure if this link works, its the only way i know how to get my thread here haha. http://www.qldaf.com/forums/general-aquarium-discussion-19/new-here-my-450l-cichlid-tank-79175/
  5. Hi guys, Am currently establishing a 5x2x2.5 aquarium and have been told you don't require an airator as long as your filter is creating movement on the surface. I will have 2 1500l canisters . One at each end. I will be stocking Africans , mostly frontosa and blue dolphins. Thanks
