help planning my new set-up.
okay guys would like to hear what you think of my proposed set-up.
Okay the tank is 7 x 2.5 wide by 2 high, so holds about 200 gallons.
the tank will be supported on a steel frame. and will be a sps
This is what i was thinking of the lighting:
with the blue actincs done by the deltec power twin t5 units of 2x39 watts, so will have 4 of these.
and then the main lighting will be the stm compact 250 watt units:
and have the three yellows as 14k de arcadia bulbs, with the red one as de 10k bulbs, with the 10ks only on for 6 hours a day. In the tank i will have two eheim 1260's for closed loops and 2 tunze streams 6000 and 2 6100's controlled with the multicontroller. I will have a weir with two durso style piping connected to the sump with 1 1/2" piping.
the sump area will be around 1.5m below the tank, and is in a lean to behind the garage.
I hope to have a large plastic bucket that holds around 200 gal
which i will fill with dead live rock from
the sump area will look like this:
with above the sump i will have a frame which will have the skimmers , two deltec apf 600, a deltec rowa reactor, the deltec pf509 calcium reactor. http://www.deltecaquariumsolutions.com/home.php
with a bucket of ro
water which has a tunze osmolator connect for the evaporation.
the sump will be my current tank which is 100 gal
tank will be 40" x 20 wide by 18 high and have a pump running it so have 30x turnover and be lit by my current arcadia series 3 250 watt metal halide with a 14k bulb.
below this i will have a small area for macro algae.
the heating will be done with heaters controller by a contoller, and fans above the tank and sump area will also be controlled by controllers.
the return from the sump is a deltec hlp4040.
any ideas please let me know,
