Looks damn sexy. Any particular reason you went with returns over the rim instead of running them in your overflow box to keep top of tank cleaner looking?

It's easier to make a siphon break this way. So far I like it will be doing the canopy next and pushing the tank back to the wall since plumbing is good.

As someone who is a year and a half from graduating, I can't wait to have the money for an amazing build like this!

Scuzy's new 210 Build

Thanks. I just ran more cables and configure the uv flow. Will drain the tank this weekend and get it back into the wall position. Hopefully I will have the light canopy base attached to the wall beams. Then I can put the sand in and get the the ro/di water filled. Start my cycle.


I got a bunch of rocks in the bin finishing soaking after bleaching it a few weeks ago. Next is to dry them out and start using my Marco E400 to sculpt a few pieces into a shape I like and creat my rock sculpture. This will be pretty fun.

I won't have much time to work on his next week as I will be in Hawaii to get away from the Super Bowl traffic nightmare that weekend. I hope to resume work on this guy and have the house start looking clean again. The Mrs. Is starting to complain about fish stuff everywhere.

Sorry to hear, I'm sure you've tried Tech M, and if you have I'm surprised it hasn't worked for you. Seems to be working for many, including myself, albeit slow.

I hope you never get that god awful scum again. Nice reboot!!!

When I started reading your original tank build thread, I wondered if you would end up regretting the 160 pounds of sand. Are you still using a DSB in the new tank? I have been battling a GHA/bryopsis, or dino problem for months, and have been told the nutrients from my sand bed are feeding the algae.

I will be using black sand in the new build butba very shallow layer. Like maybe 100lbs instead of 200 in the last build.

Looking forward to seeing the new setup. Are you still keeping the QT next to the display?
