So I'm about to get started building and I promise to provide lots of pictures along the way. This build will take a while for several reasons:
1. I like to do things right the first time. One of my favorite lines in a movie is "Son, the Ruskies don't take a dump without a plan." - Stripes
2. Financial considerations
3. Time constraints with work
Well here goes!
What I Have:
Two standard 3' single light reflector lamps
55gal for sump
20gal for QT (A must - no livestock goes in the DT until after the QT)
Eggcrate for lining the bottom of tank under rocks
40lbs of medium coarse sand from MarcoRocks
105lbs of dry rock from MarcoRocks
4 lbs of dry rock rubble courtesy of overpacking from MarcoRocks
11lbs of dry rock donated from a friend (Thanks Matt!)
pipe and connectors for DYI overflow
What I am planning on getting:
Seifert test kits
PanWorld 100PXX 1270gph pump for return line
Two Koralia Evolution 1400 circulation pumps
One Koralia Evolution 750 circulation pump
Reef Octopus Diablo XS200 Protein Skimmer
What else I need:
Too numerous to mention right now. I think the above is enough to keep me busy for a little bit.
Any comments or suggestion on equipment is appreciated. The eqiupment I'm planning on is not set in stone. I still have time until the Bulk Reef Supply group buy.
