After a little over a year in the hobby I'm taking the step from fresh to salt. It's a "go big or go home!" Type of project😄

This is my 3D modeling of the build

The two main display tanks are
78"D x 30" W 24" T (250 Gal)
48"W x 24"D 24" T (120 Gal)

Then there is a Predator Pond 130 Gal (tub) horse trough.

All three will overflow into a 120 Gal tub that will hold 8 filter socks and the bubble king 250 deluxe internal skimmer, connected at the base with a twin 120 Gal Tub it will host the return pump, a Zeolite auger style media reactor, a vertex 1.5 l media reactor and eventually a vertex calcium reactor oh and two 150watt heaters.

I purchased a Apex Neptune gold package for a controller.

Its been a fun build thus far and thought I would share!

The rest of the tanks on the drawing are and seen in the photos are two separate systems built down stream. The first is a 90 gal frag tank with equal sump the second a 90 gal split QC/QA tank with sump.
All three systems sit 4"-6" above the next and will have overflows that cascade all the way to an exterior drain.
Three 55gal water barrels will stand as a fresh water reservoir to a like barrel mixing station, plumed directly into the display return lines.
The Vertex RO system will provide auto top off water to all three sumps.

Its the dream!!!!

I wish i had space or budget, I'm still working on setting up a few decent 2.5 gallon Betta tanks... Alas, tje list of projects grows in correspondence with my $$ shrinking... 😭


Sent from my bed, the only space available to me that isn't smothered in dirty laundry or aquariums.
