I was fortunate enough to get one of the tanks XCaret was giving away, so it looks like I'll be able to get something up and running sooner rather than later (I'm still planning to do the fabled balcony tank -- I am slowly learning SolidWorks and modelling the stand, canopy, tank, etc and will do a full scale thermal transfer analysis).... So, without further adieu, here is the tank: Tank Length = 24 inches Tank Width = 18 inches Tank Height = 20 inches Tank Volume: 37.4 Gallons XCaret did an amazing job retrofitting a hidden sump into the bank of the tank: Unlike the all in one sump on my old Solana, this one has lots of room for the equipment. Only downfall is it makes the usable tank area a bit on the smaller side, but it's a small price to pay for it being so turnkey. I'm still cleaning up the stand. Other than some dust and cobwebs it looks to be in excellent shape, so no issue there. Okay, on to the equipment list; I happen to have a big 'ol box of reef gubbins from my last tanks, so here is what I will start this tank off with: - Tunze Osmolator ATO - Tunze Nano DOC 9002 skimmer - Maxijet 1200 return pump - Koralia 1s and 4s for main circulation -- I have an assortment. I have a couple Tunze 6100s kicking around but those would turn the tank into a tornado. - 250w titanium heater -- used to be one of those Won Bros dealies until the heater controller died. I've got an STC-1000 temperature controller I bought off ebay that I will use instead. Once I get a feel for calcium and alk demands, I'll determine if I want to run a small calcium reactor, or dose 2-part. I've got a single-head Cole Palmer dosing pump that will be perfect for feeding a Ca reactor, and I can get a double-head unit if I choose to dose 2-part. For lighting I'm thinking I'll look into a Kessil LED light. A 150w LED - 15000k, would likely be enough illumination. Planned contents: - Micro and macrofauna.. LOTS of it. I am a HUGE fan of a tank with loads of pods, worms, etc... - The obligatory clown, and some other small fish - SPS primarily (I'd like to start growing out some of the amazing frags I've seen at Neptune). - Zoas and ricordea down below (again, so many of those I saw).
