Did you go with the finnex?
yes. the ray 2 ds, 7k/7k lights.Did you go with the finnex?
the hangers are okay. not as slick as ada pipes and wires but it will do for now.x2. I like it way better than my hanging setups I made from conduit.
its a fun hobby and this is my most extravagent project yet. good times.subscribed. looking forward to this!
just breaking the tanks down and storing them away. been trying to sell a few locally, otherwise i got other projects in mind in the future.That is pretty cool, :icon_wink you selling any of your other tanks? :biggrin:
i wanted to have full control of water parameters. just adding GLA ghnice hanging method! Is the water pretty hard? will you remineralize? or do a tap blend?
cool..... the vids really sold me. sometimes its all about the advertising. i was also thinking i might do reefing one day so might as well start getting used to making my own water now.My friend just bought that same RO/DI unit. He's a reefer in Mililani and tired of driving to sand island for water. Great looking set up!
That's good to know. What dose of those ferts (dry fert nano measurement, i.e. dash, pinch, drop/ or 1/4 tsp, etc.) would you estimate/ recommend for a 10 gal tank?if your doing e.i dosing with your ro/di make sure you add a bit more mgs04 and potassium. I found with straight ro that i was still lacking these 2 with the gh booster, probably not as big of an issue with lower light though.
Sweet work. Time to add a black or white background.
Looks awesome! can't wait to see it grow in
I agree with Mark on adding a background. A black background will make that black box go away.
Thanks for the compliments everyone and for checking out my tank. I'm Loving this tank.That looks great! I prefer the clear background look.
Is that a aqueon sump? Did you find that at a store?
Thanks. I'll check out my local lowes for that stuff. I was even thinking of frosted which I think they sell as well.Im a big fan of this stuff as a background, if you dont like it you can always peel it off, i agree with the black background to make the overflow less obtrusive. or relocate it to the far end of the tank.
You might look into trying to seal up the intake side of the wet/dry as best you can. this will keep the tank from degassing the c02. If you want to hide the c02 diffuser, stick it in front of the intake on your sump pump, this will pump all the micro bubbles into the tank still, and give them a lot more turbulence in the water to dissolve more efficiently.
The scape came out great btw!
Staring at my tank this evening and was thinking the same thing. I'm a bit torn cause I like the look of the right sided branchwood pieces individually. It also doesnt help that the wood is a different color. I think I over bleached them and may rubbed off all the bark or something.Hey,
I like the equipment set up. But IMO, it looks like you might be running into the same issue about the scape that I have. The tank is so long that it's hard keep the left and rightside hardscape consistant while still complementing each other.
I really like the left hand side. Perfect wood, plants, and a good transition to the right using the stones in the back(The stones remind me of a Heiau). Then you get to the rightside... I'm just not feeling that driftwood. The angles are unnatural to me and I would find another piece or just take it out and move the leftside over to the right a little.
This is just my opinion but I hope it helps.
