Hello.

Where do you keep your Panta Rhei controller? The 42 has a nice mount but the 63 has a bulky handle.

thanks

My English is to bad. Hope I understand right



The electrical guy write the position of the pumps on the wrong side

He doesn't know that the screen is able to switch the sides. I have to clean now

Great addition and changes to your light set up. I didn't think this tank could get any better.

Wow 24000 liters of salt water, guess you'll never have an excuse for not doing a water change

you're right! I don't like any system for drop of this and drop of this every day. Also I doesn't like phosphatadsorber to change. I plan to change may be 1500 liter or more a week. When everything is finish I will be able to change 2000 liter ( 500 gallon) within 5 min! Because sump is big enough I doesn't have to stop the system. I am not sure if I use natural saltwater in future or will work with normal salt.

Thank you. The Led isn't the right spectrum. ATI will sell new cluster for changing in future. But I think with HQI I make everything fine so I must not change the clusters absolutely.

Known switch from HQI to plasma in combination with led or T5. Plasma need half energy of HQI und make same job.

I think we are fish guys

But corals will introduce in this winter. Fishroom get 3 new aquarium for quarantine fish and corals next weeks.

Yesterday I put sump into the ground for better handling at fleece filter and water from my tanks will flow without pump into sump. Dirt work have to clean Skimmer and the bottom.


Next weekend I will enlarge the tanks about 20cm to drain tanks completely. One weekend later hope to lay tiles.

Also my two new quarantine tanks and my coral / frag tank arrive next week.
