alright. well its def been awhile since last updating. honestly though, the tank has gone downhill a few levels. due to a combination of 1)lack of funds and 2) lack of Ro
water, the tank has suffered a moderate algae outbreak. so far ive used reduced light schedules to hold it at bay until i get my next round of equipment in. ever since i purchaed this setup, ive been slowly upgrading it piece by piece. the setup started out with the following equipment.
2 maxi-jet powerheads (250-300gph)
Current USA skimmer (75g model)
2 Stealth heaters (100 & 200w)
sump was DIY consisting of 2-20g rubbermaid containers with a 2" pvc
pipe connecting them nd a Danner Mag-drive 5 return pump. hard drain lines and flew return lines.
ive spent the past 2 years or so building it up to this so far.
2 Koralia Evolution 750's
Vertex IN-250 skimmer
2 Visa-therm 200w heaters
55g DIY refugium
all drain/return lines hard lined in.
Herbie/Hofer hybrid overflows
if all goes well, in the next week or so, ill be adding a BRS 4-stage value RODI
system, DIY Led
lighting, Mag-drive 9.5 to that list. once the RODI
unit makes it here and i get it plumbed in, im going to start the lovely process of switching over to rodi
water, which should in turn, take care of my algae problem. ive also decided to pull the trigger on a few more fish, but thatll have to remain a secret for the time being. sad news though, wedid lose our picasso trigger to unknown causes. everyone else is still kicking and doing great. Hopefully this all goes as planned, ive never ran rodi
water on my tanks before so its gonna be interesting to see if it solves my algae issue.
