So I've jumped on board the 12g train and started my own!
Mr Aqua 12g Long
3/4 plywood DIY stand.
1 strip of Aluminum channel with 8-10 cree XT-E's. Will be powered via Meanwell LDD-700HW. Nearly done building this, but haven't started the controller yet
cerges reactor, fabco nv-55 split from my other tank. Still waiting on ebay to ship the bubble counter.
: hydor inline
: Eco complete fine grade. This stuff is new and closer to sand than the regular coarse stuff. Hopefully it works out!
Ebay seryu stone. Who knows what it really is!
: I would like to get S. repens & HC, but they are very hard to get here in the middle of nowhere, Canada! My LFS stock stuff from Flordia aquatic nurseries, so perhaps I can get it from them if they stock it.
Planning on amano shrimp, and the rest is up for suggestions!
Plans: Going to build a new arduino based controller. Not sure which one yet. Will eventually control lighting, temp, fert dosing. For now I can probably piggyback on my existing hydra-reef. I wish I had better documented the outputs!
I'm hoping my plan to split CO2 from the existing tank works. Some concerns: tanks are 15 feet apart, one is using a cerges reactor, the other a ceramic in-tank diffuser. I'm not sure if the pressure requirements between the two or the long distance may cause problems. I do have 2 nv-55s. Any suggestions welcomed!
I'd appreciate any suggestions on scaping or populating the tank. My existing tank turned out to be: plant 15 different types of plants and see what wins. Answer: 'dwarf' sag. It is in desperate need of some repair which I shall attend to while this one cycles.
