Just waiting for my return pump (sequence snapper)..my RO Unit and my Reef Keeper ll..

Next step is plumbing the tank..mixing salt..filling the tank up and get the rock from Dr. Mac... and then, just let it cycle..

I would like to see the final set up. I am 36x36x10 all black acrylic tank. My 400 MH lumenarc was not enough spread so I went to two 250DE PFO pendants- it sounds similar to what you will do. I am using the helios 20k as I cant use any actinic on my set up. It sounds really cool! good luck

Where are you guys getting these cool shallow tanks?! I want one! I was thinking about a 30breeder size tank but I don't like the black trim on it. I was thinking of something along the lines of 36"x 18 or 24" x 10-12"H Any ideas on the best things I can do?

Mike

MikeD,

I got mine from glasscages.com

They are very well built tanks and they have great prices. I think they are based out of TN..

Those were probably the same idots I dealt with though... except they didn't even give me a chance to pick up the tank! That was my bad experience with them in a nutshell as I stated above. 4 days after I paid for the tank they called me and said that I ask dumb questions over email and that my tank was too hard to build... they then refunded my money. I was pretty much left in shock.

I'm proud to say I pioneered the rimless tanks with GC. It took them two builds to get it right (yeah guys don't worry about using those CAD drawings and 3d models I sent ) but it's solid as hell. My build thread is tied to the little red house if you're interested.

I did sand and a single CVR 10K in a L3 mini but will be going BB and all-T5 in the near future.

VERY nice coral TRUEBLACKPERCULA!!

Ok, so i got in my return in the mail today (Courtesy of my gorgeous girlfriend Krystynn as a xmas present!)..this thing is pretty cool. Ive always been a fan of Sequence pumps. I like the fact that the snapper can be tweaked down. Anyways, things are coming along quite smoothly..
