Thanks Kevin, I got pretty lucky finding the seller and ended up getting a lot of bang for my buck. Its a good start

Actually I think I am going to go back and snag up some of his livestock.
A mated pair of Black Ocellaris Clownfish...

Hi Everyone, Been a while since I have done an update so here it goes.
My tank has been fully cycled for the past 5 weeks. I took a vacation so didn't want to introduce any livestock until I got...

I did email Chris over at Reeflo about it and sent him all of my tank info. He gave me some suggestions on how to make it work even though their installation guide says not to.

Sorry sometimes the images do not post right from tapatalk. I have looked at the DC pumps and am just a bit concerned if they are actually hitting those specs. From what I have read it seems that the...

Yes if you look at the pic above there is a tee just below the main valve on the return. There is a 1/2" line to the fuge and a 1/2" line that just circulates back to the sump. At the top of the DT...

Sure can. It was at about 980 and that was too high I think. At the moment I have the loop and refugium supplies open 100% and I am at 600.

I am targeting 600gph in the DT. The sump is a center return so 300gph to the five from the return line. My skimmer is pushing 700gph but I think that's a high number.

I have 1.5" return from the pump to the top of the tank where it splits to 3 3/4" return lines. Here is a pic - http://mramsey.homeip.net/img/reef/bean/IMG_6528.JPG
I was just afraid that I would...

OK so I am trying to really get a grasp on calculating head loss. I want to figure out how much I actually have on my system to accurately size a new pump.
The problem is there are multiple pipe...

Yeah according to the meter the incoming tap water TDS is about 320ppm and 11ppm after the ro. That's about 96.5% rejection.

Several days later and the tank is full of saltwater. Salinity is at 1.025 water temp at 79 F. I will start the cycle next weekend. I want to let the tank stabilize for the week and make...

Woot! Reef crystals and testing supplies arrived today.
04-08-2014, 06:20 PM
Yep, just to confirm the issue I built a pressure gauge to test the static water pressure. I read 97 PSI. While I had the gauge connected I started the washing machine then stopped it. While it was...

According to the gauge on the ro unit its about 95psi
04-07-2014, 11:43 PM
Ran into my first real problem today. The pressure gauge on my BRS RO/DI unit is leaking. I also discovered that my water pressure is too high.
The good news is that BRS is sending me a new...

Thanks Cliff! I am going to do a second coat today. I used a semi-gloss paint and can see some areas that I touched up so second coat is in order. I also cleaned out the 72g bow front in preparation...
04-06-2014, 03:43 AM
Paint is done. Salt is ordered. We're getting close now.
04-02-2014, 01:04 PM
Yea I will have to play with the power heads when I get it filled. There won't be much burrowing going on since I did not do a deep sand bed. I added 40# of sugar sized aragonite to cover the...

OK chiseled away at a few pieces to make a couple more caves and a shelf. Now I have used all of my rock. I will get a few pieces of live rock from a buddy to seed with. I will probably just put them...
04-01-2014, 02:15 PM
I will research these. I was thinking of adding a shelf in there somewhere to create more hiding spots
04-01-2014, 12:59 PM
Community based but a few larger species. Really maybe 6-10 total fish...
An anemone at some point with a clown or two.
Corals softies an lps maybe some sps later.
04-01-2014, 12:51 PM
Right now I think this is all of the rock I want to add. I still have maybe 10-12 pounds left. That's about 110 pounds in the DT. Still no clue on stocking yet but open to suggestions.
