75 gallon build- Full Triton Method

Hello everyone! Figured I’d (re)introduce myself. Was active back in 2015 +/- with a 40 breeder and now back at it after a decent break. Currently have a Biocube32 set up, but in the process of building a 75 gallon. Been a long time planning and ordering parts, but I almost have everything and the tank is currently being assembled by GlassCages…

I’ll be running Full Triton Method on this tank, and ended up with a Trigger Systems Triton 34V2 sump. The fuge will be lit by a AI Prime FUGE, and I’ll also be processing nutrients with a RO Classic 152S. Not in the pic but will be adding a couple AquaMaxx FRSE reactors for GFO and carbon. I’ll be pushing water back up with a Sicce Syncra Silent 5.0 and using a 3.0 for reactors and UV (if needed) down the road.

Anyways, here’s the sump with a matching ATO res. Ill put up another post shortly with my lighting info ☀️

ThanksÖ

Going softy/LPS dominant, maybe a stick or 2 up top. Would like a nice garden theme- zoas, acans, euphyllia garden, few torchesÖ nice and packed in there.

Lighting was a bit of a deliberation for this tank. First I wanted this, then that, then this again, then those, etc etc. So, I decided to jump on a solid deal for some used Hydra 64HD’s. I’ll be adding the 36” ReefBrite X-Series dual LED bars once the tank starts growing a bit. Or sooner, most likely. Also got into the world of automation and snatched up a Hydros Control 4 to monitor PH, temp, and ORP. I’ll also be adding a CO2 scrubber with a solenoid to open and close depending on how my PH levels are. The fuge is large on this system and I’m hopeful it naturally remains in the 8.1-8.3 level like my Biocube does. Time will tell. Alongside of the Control 4 will be a WaveEngine to power and control 2 Reef Octo Pulse 2’s.



Yes I realize there’s no 48x18” glass box that’s supposed to be there. Older pic before the ATO res showed up as well !

This is going to end up being a great tank from one epic looking build.

Iím hoping so! I have more time invested into planning this one out than all my precious tanks combined and then multiplied by several. Very excited and canít wait til I can start piecing it all together.

Been a minute, and patiently waiting, but my GlassCages tank has arrivedÖ very excited to start plumbing it. They built it with 3/4Ē glass and this thing is sturdy. Nice beveled edges and the overflow is solid. Should see me posting more updates in the next couple weeks. Need to add some 3/4Ē plywood to the stand to make it rimless compatible, and some leveling neoprene. Hoping this build doesnít drive me crazyÖ

Due to the fact that I originally planned on getting a plastic braced aquarium, and ended up with an all glass rimless, my stand had to be modified with a 3/4” piece of plywood. Got her cut to size and sprayed with epoxy appliance paint. Going to be putting the leveling mat directly on top of the stand. I also cut a piece out to add to the bottom of the stand for my sump and ATO res to sit on. Hoping to have it set up to start plumbing by this weekend or next..
