  1. Default 240g + 300g in wall build

    I finally started the beginning phase of my in wall setup idea. The idea is to move the wall 4ft back to give more space in the living room. The wall will be the front part of the stand so the tanks will be flush with the wall and have picture frame molding around them. The floor will have 3/4 plywood on top. Under the floor... has beams made by sandwitching two 2x6 with plywood in the middle. Those are supported by concrete blocks to the ground on every beam. That was the hard part!

    The tanks:
    300g - 6ftx3ft - Eeel, Banded shark and stingray
    240g - 7ftx2ft - Reef with typical reef fish
    sump - custom designed to support both tanks, thinking fluidized sump
    Algae scrubber - custom designed with ability to expand

    I forgot to mention I hate manual labor lol. So here is to the fun *cheers*

    definitely gonna follow this one! Any ideas for a stocking plan yet?
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    I will transfer the tessalata eel to the 300g. Once everything is setup and running for a while I will add a banded shark and stingray.

    The 240 will have lion fish, puffer (maybe, he keeps eating my one coral), blue tang, yellow tang, a few other typical reef fish... pretty much transfer the fish from the 120g to the 240. I already sold the 120 setup. After that I will add some more fish but I don't know what else at this time. I always take suggestions

    No too sure what to suggest as I'm not too sure what you want to put in there for equipment

    But I would suggest to try to arrange things for a in-sump algae scrubber (reverse lighting schedule from the main tank)

    Are both tanks going to be on this one sump ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Scrubber will be exteral as well as the skimer. This sump is for both tanks so I only have to deal with one paramter.

    Only equipment in the sump will be 4 pumps, heaters and oxygen supply for the K1 chamber. Also a small pump for the fuge and UV light.
