The last time I did a tank I did it with a 55 gallon with no baffle, no skimmer deep sand bed the whole length, live rock, and macro algae. It seemed to work for me, everyone told me I was doing it wrong. I only did some soft corals and I wanted to do some LPS and sps this time. Everyone seems to tell me I need a skimmer and the sump needs to be compartmentalized.

Excellent diagram above.

Consider a modification which allows for a large sand/rubble bed and larger refugium area. From the design above I would do the following:
1. Raise the return pump to within several inches of the water surface.
2. Reduce the height of the baffle at the skimmer.
3. Remove all other baffles.
4. To prevent the return pump from creating a vortex that sucks air, float a 4" piece of flat styrofoam above the intake

Voilà. There it is. The biofiltration capacity has now been increased 20-fold with a sand bed and double the area for Macroalgae (LS harbors up to 80% of a reef tanks biofiltration and Alk/Ca buffering). The height of the return pump and/or the running water level can be adjusted to account for flood prevention during power outages/pump off. See the thread given in my previous post above for a few other details.

Simple, efficient and providing maximum productivity in the available space.

Aloha,
Mark.

This is how I made my DIY 55 gal.  I calculated how much room I have above the bottom of my overflow box teeth and the top of the tank and made the pump sump area small enough to prevent the display tank from overflowing if the overflow gets clogged for whatever reason.

Probably a bad Motherboard, might be cost effective to find one on eBay and swap it.

Run the hardware diagnostics by holding down the "Fn" key and then pressing the Power button. This will start the diagnostics and will emit beep codes.

Frag Grow-Out Competition (NEW)!!! : Frag Contest Check-In #2 (12/1/16)

Posted: December 03 2016 at 9:08pm

Ca: 360/ 320 2 weeks ago

Alk: 8.1

Mag: 1400

Nitrate: 2

Phosphate: .16

Salinity: 1.025

Temp: 78

Checked calcium 2 weeks ago since it was low during the last check-in.


What I would change is permanently running an RO line so I don't have to unroll the 40 foot 3/8 line I have under my kitchen sink every time I need to fill up my fresh water reservoir.


The coral on the left came from a frag about 8 months ago and it is possibly a frag of the contest "mother" coral.  Everyone might as well throw in the towel now, I got this one in the bag ;)
