rigleautomotive's Tank Pics Thread

Dan, I'm going to start up a new thread just for you. Thanks for letting me come over as usual and snap some pics. Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologize for some of the quality of the pics due to I am a camera Newbie with my new Nikon D60 with stock lense. This is rigleautomotive's tank. Enjoy the pics. Dan again, thanks for the mini colonies Here is a new thread for progress on someones tank with some great knowledge about reefing. Lucky enough I live minutes away. He is an archive of information and his tank shows that hardwork in this hobby pays off huge!

And sorry for the saturation I cant get the whitebalance figured out on this camera.












and....

Would you be willing to give us all a little bit of information on your tank.

The tank is a stock mega flow all glass 180 with all drilled holes used as drains.I use a blue line HD40x for a return pump and using just the two drains would just about max them out so i used all four for drains.Lighting is three 250 watt XM 20K bulbs in lumenarc III reflectors driven off coral vue electronic ballasts with two 6 foot vho actinic bulbs driven off an ice cap ballast.For flow i use a blue line HD 40X pump on a closed loop with 4 penductors , a maxijet 1200 modded and a tunze 6025 modded.I built the sump out of 3/8 acrylic with baffles and bubble traps included and its capacity is about 60 gallons.The tank drains into a 100 micron filter sock .The skimmer is a ETSS 600 pro downdraft skimmer.a 2 foot by 2 foot refuge with macro algae is located in the final chamber of the sump .
