    Stocking wise will be starting off with what I've already got,

    Scopas tang, Sargassum Trigger, Royal Gramma, Pair of Clowns, Yellow tail damsel, Bi colour blenny, file fish, gobies, jawfish, various shrimp, starfish hermits and snails.

    Corals wise I've got some bits of branching SPS, plating SPS, Torch corals, a 14" leather coral, some zoas and some mushrooms.


    I'd like to get a Tri Colour tang and a shoal of Lyratail Anthias but not sure what else.

    Another thing you might want to think of is on-board memory so that you can track the data. By this I mean recording whatever you can to look for any trends so you can see if you wanna make any changes. I know I'd kill to be able to watch my temp and pH graphs over the course of the day but my reefKeeper doesn't have any on-board memory to track that

    Just another thing to think about

    And in terms of what board to go with I'd stay away from the ardunio one, it lack processing power from what I understand and I'd just stick with the PLC but it's definitely something to think about since you won't be using a lot of logic, more just a timer on steroids with some different modes from what I understand
    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 have no real idea of what can live with what in SW, just wanted to chip this in though, I saw for the first time a bird wrasse, quirky as anything, and I read they can be housed in a 180 no probs, ever seen them before chris?
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Oh yea, I've got a banana wrasse too lol

    Wrasses are stunning fish. One of the smaller wrasses would be fine in a 180 mate. I've going to get another couple of wrasses as some point too.

    I'll defo write the data into a datablock and track the ph and temp, will be handy to see what the tank does through the middle of a summers day etc.

    All any PLC really does is the job of a few timers on steroids if you think about it.
    The stuff I've been training on the last few weeks (Top drive drills for Oil rigs and automated pipe handlers) are actually simpler in function and code than what this tank system will be lol

    The only complexed bit on those is the VSD (variable speed drive), basically a massive inverter and frequency converter than can put out over 1500A at 750V AC!!!!!

    Wow... I need one of those haha

    Yea I imagine it won't be overly complex since it'll just be an on off cycle for a set amount of time depending on what "mode" your in but still cool as heck haha

    Cool table.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Right, decision has been made as to how the stand and hood will look.

    Going for something a little different to the norm.

    I will build the frame solid out of construction timber (2x4) and get it solid.

    I then will be cladding the outside in MDF but will be painting the entire thing in epoxy with a dark admiralty grey pigment.

    http://www.ecfibreglasssupplies.co.u...y-pigment.aspx

    Should look pretty modern in style. Very high gloss finish and easy to wipe down.

    I will make 100% sure every single part is sealed in the epoxy and the cabinet doors will be handle less using magnetic fasteners (save little hands getting into the sump).

    Can't wait now. Work starts in aprox 1 month!

    That table reminds me of Catherine the Great...she had a table that rose up from the floor (for dining) with place-set tubes that took down the order, and then returned the food to the guest...and the entire table would then retract again afterwards for dancing...

    This was done in order to ensure privacy for the guests (no one would see them). Apparently servants are very gossipy...
