Tank Threads : speyside's new 90 gallon reef build!

Hey everyone,
I am building a new reef tank and wanted to share my experiences both in building that reef, and what I've learned getting to this point. This is the 4th tank I've had. I've learned a lot along the way but have lots more to go. Feel free to chime in with ideas and suggestions!

My first tank was a 26 gallon bowfront that was given to me by my brother in law. The tank was already up and running stocked with some softies, a couple clown fish, a baby yellow tang, and a cleaner shrimp. It was a symple system with no sump, just a hang on skimmer and carbon filter. It had power compact lights, a heater, and a single power head but no other equipment.  This sparked my interest and I've been hooked ever since.

Tank #2 is still up and running. It is a 55 gallon similar set up with no sump.  It only has a hang on back skimmer and carbon filter and 1 powerhead, very similar to my first tank. I bought this one used from BillyC here on UtahReefs. The same clowns and yellow tang are living in this one 6 years later. Im sure the tang will be happy to move into the new 90 gallon as soon as its ready, as he has grown a lot and definitely outgrown the 55.

Tank #3 was a failed attempt. I bought a used 90 gallon. After setting up all the plumbing and while waiting for the tank to cycle, it sprung a leak. I tore everything down, removed all the caulk and re-caulked the entire tank. Tested it for leaks and determined it was fixed. I then changed my mind about the upgrade and sold the whole setup.


Tank #4 is the tank this thread is about. It is my renewed effort to upgade my setup.

This tank is a 90 gallon MarineLand with a corner overflow that I purchased from Live Rock and Reef.

The stand I had custom built by Driftwood aquariums. It has an extra tall canopy to give more room for maintenance.

The sump is a 36 gallon ruby model by Trigger Systems.

After the issues with leaks I had with the used tank I decided I would rather buy new and not deal with the risks even if it meant spending quite a bit more. After all, I don't think any of us got into this hobby because it's cheap...

I'll post pictures of my progress and add to the saga soon!

[QUOTE=Krazie4Acans]That looks like pool hose.  It's used on pool filters.  Check pool and spa supply stores for it.
[/Q any salty LFS store can order them if not in stock.

$30

This is the first listing for the contents of my nano reef.

This listing is for one large head. I bought it for $20-25 last fall, and it has grown considerably since then.

The below picture is a similar specimen I found online. They're even better looking when they puff up and extend their tentacles, which mine usually does.

General Help : help with tiger shark pump

Just read this and wondered if I misunderstood the pump issue as described in your other thread. It may instead be a plumbing problem where the pump is not getting a constant supply of water or it is cavitating. Either way, it's probably easiest to call/text me to work it out on the spot.

That's a unique issue. I have fixed a dozen or more Reeflo pumps. It would be an electrical issue, most likely a faulty connection or component. I'll be in town next Tuesday through Friday and would be happy to come look at it then. In the meantime, I have a few suggestions:While it's running, 1. wiggle/reposition the plug in the wall to see if that is the cause,2. wiggle the cord at the pump to see if that causes the interruption,3. wiggle the cord all over. 4. put your nose down by the motor to smell or hear any sparking.
After running, unplug the power cord and put your hand on the capacitor component, the box on the side of the motor, to see if it is really hot or actually cool to the touch.
That's all I can think of for now. After doing the things above, feel free to call me at 808-345-1049 for more troubleshooting help.
Aloha,Mark

I'm not sure how many of you check all new threads/posts in the General Discussion and similar informational sections like I do. You should. I learn something new there almost every day. The recent thread linked below is one such. It contained important info about testing kits, but also included information about checking salinity, very pertinent to this thread:http://utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=82850
