Hi Reefers,

I've decided to chronicle my new tank in a a brand new thread. Going for full sps this time around. Will reveal the list of my equipments in due time, though some of them are actually from my old tank & 2nd stuffs. Will upgrade when the need arise. Will also shift the 5 remaining fishes to my new tank although not advisable but I just can't bear to let them go. Lol

Without further ado, here's a drawing of my new tank. Pls comment and give advise but now maybe too late to make changes as tank will be arriving in this sat. Haha...

My sump will have 4 compartments so by the time water flow thru the bubble trap which will acts as a baffle to minimize bubbles going to the last compartment where the return pumps are located.

Some infor abt my new tank. It's made by Iwarna using their tank maker, Ah Heng. Tank dimension will be 48"x22"x22" display with front side crystal glass, 12mm thickness. Sump is kinda like I copied a little from Royal exclusiv dream box design & also getting advises from some of my reefing bros.

Went to Iwarna to choose my rockscape which I will be using Aquaroche ones. (Piece of mind, no hitchhikers & pests!!)

Here a pic of the dry scape at Iwarna store...

So far quite satisfied with this scape. Pls give comments, thks.

Iwarna's Karthi putting water in & Compressor guy also came to install my Dalkin 1hp compressor chiller. Water is mixed with rodi using Royal Nature synthetic salt.

Setting thermostat to kick in at 27deg and out at 26deg. Really fast in cooling. Abt 1-2 hrs to cool down from 29deg to 26deg. Can further improve efficiency by improving flow in the coil compartment as advised by Derrick either by adding circulating pump or a plastic sheet between skimmer compartment baffle and coil to deter flow into coil compartment. Flow is too direct in from skimmer compartment according to him.

Noooooo your tank arrive so fast when you order it :((( nice tank emoji106.png

Didn't know ah Heng do bean animal

Abt a mth ago thru Iwarna's Justin. For it has to be convenient to me at the same time as I want do all one shot. But now I starting to think it's not a very gd idea after all. Newbies dun learn from me. Haha... Was in discussion with Justin for quite long though to iron out most details before committing. Tank built takes abt 3-4wks. Ah Heng does bean animal. No wonder he said only abt 10 customers  ask him do bean animal. Publicity not enough!! Haha...

Can share what's done wrongly so we can look out for it in future ?

The height of the durso is wrong. Main durso is on the left shd be lower as it act as main & full siphon and drain pipe, middle durso which acts as open channel is higher with air tube on top cover. Air tubing shd be curl down to above main durso on the left. When water level rises too much & block the hole of the tubing, the air tube helps to drain water down to original water level fast to become full siphon piping. Right durso is correct except for the air tube.
