It has been quite a while since the last posting.
Inspiration during summer was always low due to my other many many hobby's

sump update:

After i removed all equipment from the sump, because these are not required anymore in todays new dosingsystems, it was a useless container which only required extra maintenance. Now i found a usefull application of the sump. Make a bypass on the MRP and place a light on it an turn it into a fragtank.

have you found xanthurus to be too bad with coral picking? i'm pretty sold on adding one to my tank, but wanted my corals to grow in a bit more before i gave that a go
When you master your tank parameters, corals will be healthy enough to withstand the pecking.
I didn't even noticed any difference with them present.

monday, september 6, 2021 we made a start building the first tank segment.
With the help of Leon and Tim we made preparations and glued the tank together.
Now waiting for the glue to cure before placing the braces.


maandag 6 september 2021 hebben we een begin gemaakt met de bouw van het eerste segment. Met de hulp van Leon en Tim hebben we voorbereidingen getroffen en het aquarium in elkaar gelijmd. Nu wachten tot de lijm uitgehard is alvorens de stabilisators en trekstips te plaatsen.

Just finished placing the braces on tank1
I had a little help from my son, we placed them together within a half hour.
The prepartions however took a little bit longer. Three glasstrips were 2mm oversized and did not fit, so i had to cut them myself. The terpentine to fill the glass cutter was used up, so i had to go out for a new bottle.
After that cutting the glas was easy peasy.
Next time i will use 5-6mm tolerance for the braces
