Ryan, it looks like it would work fine to me. For 300 GPH you need a linear overflow of 5 inches. How big are those holes?

This is the build thread! LOL

I will take pics of the setup when I move the tank and things settle down.

Thanks Tyler.

Do you know if my overflow holes will allow enough water through them? I figure my pump will only put out about 300gph with the plumbing setup I used on the return.

Same drain setup. Herbie drain with an emergency drain. It is the best overflow on the market. I love mine that I have now and this will be setup the exact same way.

The tank is the exact same size, 40 gallon breeder.

It is an open concept stand! Plenty of air flow and very easily moved if needed.

Here is a little sneak peek of the new tank! I have been working on this for the past 5 or 6 days, for a couple hours each day.

Do you know how hard it is to plumb something when you don't have everything??? I had this tank and that is all! I had to measure everything and I hope it is right. My tank now is in Provo and this tank is in Lehi.

I am moving my tank on the 15th and am super excited. I have a whole new plumbing setup, new lights, and a ton more space in the tank with a smaller overflow.

I don't think you need 8-10 bulbs. I can't even get 8 over my tank. I get great color with 4 bulbs but think that 6 would improve things a little bit.

While 6 bulbs may not improve things much it will certainly improve the overall coloration of my tank and that will please me.

I really like the Bubble Magus skimmer I have. It has been good thus far for me. I would really like a new ATI Powercone skimmer but there isn't really a need for one right now.

Your tank looks really sweet, Ryan Clap
 
I have the same camera problems as you - my corals look 10X better in person than in photos
 
I'd love to find a camera that gives decent white / color balance and has a good, crisp closeups feature that doesn't cost $500 - $1000+ Ouch

Hi Ryan! Smile I joined here because of your tank! 

Your tank looks very nice.  I now see what you mean about the camera...hopefully Santa will get you a Nikon D60.

Are the coral colours as good as they ought to be?  - Silly question, but what I mean is this: Most of the beautiful coral colours are seen with tanks that run 8 to 10 T5 tubes.  Obviously you dont have the tank depth to use more tubes, so with 4 tubes do you feel the colours are as quite good, or do you feel colour is lacking.

I wish your camera was good at taking photos because I could have simply seen the actual colour from the photos.

I am setting up a 30L x 20W x 18H rimless with starfire glass, BM NAC6 Skimmer, ATI 6x24watt Sunpower and 2xVortech MP10's for flow.  Its sort of similar to your tank.

Last question; do you get thick dry dark skimmate from the NAC6 Skimmer?  I read good reviews of this skimmer, but not seen any photos of the skimmate when its properly run in.

Thanks for your reply.

Do post some new photos in 2011 once you have your new camera...shout to Ryans wife/girlfriend: get him a new Camera for Xmas!

Time for a quick update! These pics are a little better but still not great. I used the white balance and it took out all of the blue so I added some blue back in with Picasa.

Was told this is a Blue Tenius but I know it isn't. Any other ID would be great.

Green Tenius

Lobophyllia

Orange Milli from Aquatic Dreams! I now have pink, blue, orange and green millis. The greens are tan and ugly though.

AD Strawberry Shortcake from Australia. Got this from Ryan at Aquatic Dreams as well. Probably my favorite piece when you see it in person.


This is a test coral. It should be blueish with some pink but lost all color when I lost it in my rockwork. I found it the other day and am now coloring it back up.

Tyree Pink Lemonade - washed out because of camera

That is everything for now. Hoping Santa brings me a nice Canon DSLR camera for Christmas.
