200 Gal Deep Dimension Start To Finish Part Ii

Recommended Posts

Larry   

To review here are the stats on my tank:

 

Marineland Deep Dimension 48x36x36 200 gal tank, DIY stand, DIY refugium, Reef Octopus POV5 DC Skimmer, SpeedWaves DC 5000 pump, 2Finnex Titanium Heaters 1000 watts each, 2 Turbelle 6095, Jebao RW8 Wavemaker, Neptune Apex Gold Control System.

I originally had 4 Orbit Marine 36" LEDS, but switched, as you can see in the photos, to SB Group Buy LEDS and have not looked back.

 

After much consideration I decided to replace the Orbit Marine LEDs with 4 SB Group Buy LEDs and got a marked reaction. The mushrooms and zoas all ran away, but the SPS and Euphilia took off (April 4 to June 18, 2015):

And FINALLY the tank as of March 13, 2016 has grown out (and also thanks to some large frags from KBass):

Remember those small Euphilia and Duncan frags back in 2014?

The powder blue got removed and sold after 6 months. He was too frantic and had the rest of the tank inhabitants stirred up all the time. I don't know why he wouldn't settle down but he had to go. Things settled down after he was removed. However, it did teach me a lesson about removing a fish from a large established tank. I am not going to try that again!

Nice tank sir. I can't seem to keep up with the glass in front of my tank never mind all sides lol.

Ditto

 

But I think Larry gets inspiration from his tank, He cleans it and looks at it saying "if I were a sunken ship where would I be?"

One of my favorite public aquarium displays was up in North Carolina and it had an old ironclast war ship in it. They rebutted it the way it was found in the Atlantic and made a local bootleg out of it.
