TANK MOVE (COMPLETED)

Just finished the Tank Transfer.

Frag Rack didn't fit so had to mount all Corals.

Exhausted but done

Will post a photo tomorrow. Tank with mounted Frags looks Great!!

TEMP TANK (MH Lights ON)

Small micro bubble problem. Skimmer is going nut using all the Epoxy Putty to mount Frags.



I was rushed so Missed a patch of Slime Algae. No big deal this is for month or two till new Tank is setup.

Gyre's are soaking in Vinegar, then I work on some more Circulation.

TANK MOVE FINISHED (Circulation) Time to move on to Sump Room Work

It's done. Got Circuilation pumps in (CP-40 & CP-25) Plus the Sea Swirl via DC Waveline Return Pump (Tried the Original Pointy Sea Swirl Nozzle, vs the Flat one. Better push and reach).
Plenty of Random Flow. Semi-Strong Flow.
Will leave Maxspect XF150 for other Tank.



No Automation except (Dosing and Lighting) Apex for PH & TEMP.

Now the Really Big Project Starts. Sump Room Reno (Electrical, Wall Work, etc)

Sneak Peak at (Future Tank with Side View, ConerSumpRoom-Wall Exposed)

Having a Front view in Office for years was pretty good (Even with this 65 Gallon Tank)

But the new Corner Exposed, with deeper Tank will certainly be different.



I can't imagine what 24" depth will be like.

I'm happy you found what was most likely your big issue! This thread shows me if that was your main issue, you shouldn't have any trouble with SPS from here out.

Rakie, I hope you are right (Dishwasher Drain Water isn't SPS friendly for New Salt Water Making). RO Reservoir now shows 0 TDS.
Time will tell, but so far so good.

This thread is ended

Not much to show anymore with respect to this STAGING /TEMP tank.

I'll be starting a new Thread and Will post link here. (Shortly)


Many thanks to all those folks who dropped by.

The Basement Flood has given me an new Opportunity (push) to get a new Tank.

Special thanks to Matt, ED and Sensei, your Wisdom and Encouragement got me this far.

I've learned so much and feel highly confident things will go well with the new setup.

Greatest part of this ending is I discovered that Contamination Leak. I always knew THIS TANK WAS CURSED.

The Curse HopeFully ends on on the Leak Discovery, but there we many other Mini-Curse events.

Till Next time.....Good Bye

I found the thread just in time haha. It's always fun watching new builds anyways. This next iteration will be more in line with your goals i'm guessing.

Haha. Just in time for possibly a Fairy Tale Ending or Start.

You missed all the Gory scenes.

The new Thread is brewing, but no point showing me ripping things apart which is what I'm doing now with the SUMP room.

I did do one thing SPECIAL with the NEW TANK LOCATION (A VIDEO).
Since I can get to all sides, I got out my Underwater Scuba/Snorkel Camera and shot the Temp Tank from Underneath the surface.

Cool sounds picked up.

CREATED A MINI THREAD till the NEW Thread is started (Link to Thread right here)
