Size 6 ft x 2Ft x53Inch tall
Date Started September 2010 (Moved house 5 times to date)
Lighting 2 X Daylight LED Strips 4cm wide which punch a huge amount of light into my tank and some ambient lighting due to a new position near louvers that look into my lounge room at the front of my house.
Equipment 1 x Marine Sources Overflow box 2700l/hr DIY Built Stockman Pipe with customized emergency overflow attached to: 1x Custom DIY Acrylic Sump Packed with Purigen, Cattapa leaves, Filter wool, Sponge, etc, in a typical three stage setup with a bubble wall to prevent to much oxygen saturation. 1x DIY overflow to the drain on the sump 1x 150 Gal per Day RO unit hooked up to the Tank via a manual tap (ran 4-6 hours per day) 1 x Red Devil Return Pump 3000L / Hour attached to two x 25mm return hoses via a gate valve and T coupling and an inline reactor, then returned via glass lilypipes.
CO2 5kg Pressurised Tank (From Home Brew Shop) connected to an inline atomic reactor that flows out from a glass lily pipe angled downward to get that good co2 into the deep tank
Substrate Washed river sand, Iron, ferts, capped with black Fluval Shrimp Substrate.
Parameters 4DKH, PH 5.8-6.5 Temp 28-34 Degrees ( I don't use a heater and live in the tropics)
Fertilization Weekly Addition Of FE, On water weekly water change I add Potassium, Trace elements and NPK in very minute amounts (I like to underdose to keep algae at bay) Seachem Replenish, and Microbe lift substrate cleaner are good for keeping a balanced high light environment. I also use Brightwell's discus code and thus algae can arise rapidly if things go to out of whack
