Yahoo, finally rearranged the prop tank ...

I've been wanting to do it for a while; we finally made the time today.

I had a ton of large pieces of LR in the prop tank ~ took them all out and put them in the 'fuge. The refugium probably has about 50lbs of LR in there now, yikes!

Also had uneven shelving, and too many shaded areas. My husband cut up some pvc & eggcrate for me, and we re-did the whole thing. Sorry about the quaility of the pics, there's nothing I hate more than taking pictures under VHO lighting. Now, just to save up enough $$ to put a MH on this tank....









Thanks for looking!

Excellent!!

I love it, can't wait to have a need for one myself

Is this system tied into your entire system or is it seperate?

Kevin,

It's inline (40g tank) - in the basement with the sump & 'fuge. The way we have it set up is ....

The main tank has three bulkheads (drains). These drain via flexible PVC to the basement. One drains into the fuge (which then drains into the sump), the other drains into the frag tank (which also drains into the sump), and the third drain drains directly into the sump. Each drain has a separate ball valve on it so we can regulate the flow as we wish.

Which is why my basement looks like Dexter's laboratory.

Yeppers, fragz are for sale. I'll post something in the "Classifieds" forum a little later today.

Aaron ~ as requested, pics of basement......

The pics are cruddy, but you get the idea. The first one shows the whole sump area, with the sump itself to the left - the refugium is the other stock tank to the right (and behind) the frag tank:



This one just shows more of the sump itself:



Just the sump:



Refugium (view from the right/behind the sump):



Inside the 'fuge:



Thanks again for looking!!

OUTSTANDING.

Thank you for sharing all of your 'labratory' photos. I see you need a bucket to reach things. Maybe the next phase is builing a standing platform.
