Hi there,

I am GlennF from the Netherlands and start this thread to introduce my tank properly in here.

It measures 250 x 80 x 70 cm and the waterheight is 60cm.
The main display is 1200 liters.
Including the other connecting tanks the water mass is now about 1425 liters

Nice! What equipments are you using? Lights?
Thanks...


Here are some system details:
Display tank : Plain Glass, custom build 250x80x70cm (60cm visible width and height)
Stand : Self build and welded from steel profiles.
Sump: single compartment 75x42x65cm (13cm water height)
Protein Skimmer: using an old schuran skimmer as a base, I modified it to run on 4 wooden air stones driven by a velda silenta pro 1800 pond air pump.
I use a 150mg/h ozone reactor connected to an mv controller, which is dosed through the skimmer.
Zeolite reactor for bacteria and plankton breeding as food for the corals, which I shake once a week only
18 watt UV lamp
Carbon/phosphate filtration: No use of carbon, GFO or bio-pellets. Self build zeolite reactor filled with pond zeolites.
Return Pump: Royal exclusive red dragon 6500 (6500l/h) with filter wool on the intake which i clean every 3-5 days.
Water Circulation: 1x jeboa rw15, 1 Jeboa rw20, 1x tunze 6100 connected to an IKS computer .
Ca/Alk/Mg dosing:
I use DSR, my own method with no water changes.
If needed I dose my own made supplements.
Manually: Boron, Potassium, Magnesium (measure and correct)
On dosing pumps: IKS 4 channel for : iodide, iron, Carbon V/S, Strontium
On JeBao 4ch dosing pump: Alk, Ca, NO3, PO4
ATO: DIY Auto water filler (works on a siphon and gravity from a 50 liter tank placed in the bathroom)
RO/DI: simple 375 liter /day 3step RO device with an additional silicate filter and a TDS meter, daily turned on by a garden timer.


Happy Reefing, GlennF.
