Starting today I am going to start the process of getting my new tank ready.
I am a bit nervous about the amount of work involved. The new tank going in the same location as the old one so it will require a lot of extra work.
Everything is now in for the new tank except my lights which will be in first part of next week.
This weekend I plan do several things
Drill holes in my stand for bulkeheads
Hang Light inside of stand
Cut egg crate to hold soil in place
Install electrical to stand
Plumbing for overflows
Plumbing understand to connect everything to sump
I need to move my CO2 reactor and UV light to the new tank, bit unsure how to plub those into the sump. UV light should be easy that external, I can just put small pump on it in the sump and connect it to the return line after the main pump, will that work?
What about the reactor?
I have the CarbonDoser EXT5000 (External Reactor 5000)
Would I have it go after the return pump for both in and out of the reactor?
Here link to the reactor
Then next weekend I plan to empty the old tank, move everything to those big storage bins, put the new tank in place and then put everything back in. Sounds simple?
Anything I am missing? I feel tired just thinking about it, but cannot wait for my new tank to be up.
