- Vortec MP40
- 2 x Gyres
- 1 x Tunze
- KZ skimmer and jeboa 4000l pump
- Reef fanatics pellet reactor
- Titanium heater and ATC 800 controller
- 2 x DD FR509
- Aquamedic back up heater
- Aquamedic computer and pin point controller
- Full Dastaco system for 1000L with triton media
If you wish to read more details about the tank’s equipment and maintenance Bill was really nice to share:
The skimmer is a large KZ and a 4000l jeboa pump and the circulating pellet reactor is a reef fanatics, which are both good but need regular maintenance and are in the second sump chamber.
I have MM and cheato in the 3rd chamber and a small reactor if I need to use carbon .
The last chamber has a back up heater , 2 x DD fr509 for rowa, the return pump and ATU also is a pinpoint probe to an aquamedic computer monitoring th PH .
The equipment choice was to make it as easy as possible for me to maintain water quality params without dosing as I think I am good at the husbandry routines and still learning the chemistry side.
So first off was to select a quality salt as I had used the TM bio-actif in my first tank with no issues why change its one that I have always considered trying new salt or NSW and have a small frag tank which I experiment with, but that’s early days.
The rest of the equipment was a calcium reactor, which again I had used one previously a schuran pico controlled with an aquamedic computer and PH probe which worked well with a lot of checking and testing, so I went with a Dastaco for the size of the tank and a bucket of media that came in the package. I now use the triton media in the Dastaco reactor for the first time and its been running for approx. 4 weeks.
