No the Nov and Dec delays were family and really close friends passing away. One of my best friends in the whole world, the biggest smart ass i have ever know, and neighbor died and my wife and I spending what time we weren't working with him and his wife (another very important person in our lives) from brfore he passed till long after the wake. I know wherever he is he's laughing his ass off. The other was my step-sister, i really didn't know her well. But she was my dad's wife's daughter, I know her and respect and love her. So I needed to spend time with her.

Ok the tank is now ready to get wet. Finished the frame for the canopy.

It's on a pully system so we can raise and lower it as needed.

It goes alot higher just don't have those temp lights lashed down.

7 inch filter sock, D700 CoralBox skimmer
8525c897b47e914e1bd2a8e66bcdf2ca.jpg
The left chamber is the return area it has 2 Jabeo DC-6000 return pumps, 2 Ebo Jager 300w heaters. The heaters will use there internal theometers as primary and I'll use the Cebera as the back up.
The top/larger pipe will send most of the water from the skimmer back to the tank. The lower/smaller pipe will take water to the far right and flow back to the return area at a much lower rate. I may even place a valve on it to control the flow better. The fuge area will be covered with a stand for a 30g auto top-off resivore. Under the little stand will be a SB Sprite fuge light.

One of the pump returns has a manifold that will feed the pictured GFO/Carbon reactor, and a 35w UV sterilizer I've yet to mount. The Cerebra will control as much as i can get it to do. Thinking about seeing what i can do in the way of an auto water change system.

There at the top of the tank you see the 3/4 white PVC, I'm using as a "spray bar" I may end up taking the 45s off and heating them up to pinch then for greater flow preasure. I have 3 big powerheads I'll be using short term. Will eventually get 2-4 controllable DC powerheads.

But it's ready to get wet.

Thanks I wanted the lights 9 inch above the rim of the tank wanted a way that I could get my big frame to anywhere in it.
Just need to finish up the rack skirting, then liquid nail and finish nail it down.

It's a colarbox d700 rated for 240g. I should have just a little over 200g in the system. But it does look tiny in the system.

Is that the cup or body?

 

The body for my 180 is 10". Your right that skimmer is bigger than it looks in the photo.

The cup. The base of the body is 8 1/2 inches. It's being powered by a jadeo dc-3000.

Well in the original photo right next to it is a 7 inch filter sock and it looks too small for the system too.

I'm not worried it's too small. Just the opposite with all the filtration, I'm going to have to dial it back or have the Cerebra timer control it.

Built the stand for the auto top-off resivore. Just need a pad under it and a kit. Resivore can hold 17.5 gallons so i should have to worry about filling it everyday.9bce7e8474bb02201b971544a3fd2794.jpg
Next build project is the QT rack. Should be fairly easy. 2 20g tanks stacked with enough room above and behind for some sort of lighting and a HOB filter. I'll keep a couple of the filtet packs/media in the sump of the big tank. When I need one it's already got bio on them. After QT new additions throw the pack away. Also probably use egg crate as a lid for the tanks.

Wow I would think with that much weight that little truck would have been squirrelly driving down the road.  Glad to see the tank wet.
 
Richard

It actually drove really well. I think it's because most of the weight was between the wheels in the 2 65g tanks.

Awesome!!!

LOL, I should have just had you do my rock-work, I like yours much better :)

You likely have access to all kinds of foam, but if you still need any for under the ATO reservoir I have plenty left yet not yet moved to the trash.
