Rick Rodell's 270 Reef Tank
New tank above.
Old tank and the process of changing it over are pictured below.
Old tank was acrylic and had lots of scratches. The old sump was 28 gallons. The old skimmer was an Aqua-C rated for a 180 gallon tank.
New - tank is all glass made from 3/4" thick glass with a center overflow. Sump is a custom MemFish 40 gallon with Reef Octopus SSS5000INT protein skimmer with Bubble Blaster 5000 pump.
Return is 2000 GPH through two 1" Sea-Swirls. Chiller is remoted into the next room.
We also added a Calcium Reactor, Auto Topoff system, 2 x Sicce Voyager 4 pumps (moving 1600 GPH each), Eliminator Power Strip, and a Neptune Systems Aquacontroller Pro connected to the network.
Lighting consists of 2 x 250 watt MH with 4 x 54 watt T5 actinics. This will be a mixed reef with lots of LPS corals, zoanthids, and other softies.
We opened up the aquascape by removing 95 pounds of rock and re-scaping the rest of the rockwork. This will provide better circulation, and more swimming space for the fish.
