A Euphyllia Dom Tank!

Recommended Posts

Anyone a fan of the Euphyllia family? I always find them gorgeous and love how they dance with the waves.

 

I decided to restart and rescape my tank.

Tore down and sold most of everything, ordered a new full crystal tank to rescape.

Direction of the new scape will be like a floating island style, so got my inspiration from Pinterest.

Looking good. Thanks for documenting!

The T5 / LED hybrid I feel will be a good strategy. Looking at you mount. Is that a commercially available mount, like the aquatic life hybrid?

Bro, able to share ur wave maker setting? As I understand Euphyllia normally prefer low flow.

With lower flow, how u handle ur detritus?

Happy to share, so basically design the “floating” reef so that I can control the flow in different area. I’m using 2x Maxspect Gyre and 1x Jebao wm

IMG_4305.JPG

Both Gyre are placed at the top right side of the tank, facing upwards to prevent direct flow onto the corals.
A Jebao Wm is placed under the rock works providing strong flow to prevent detritus from accumulating on the sand bed

So as long as the flow is not directed to the coral will be fine? I was told by the LFS the best is the coral will not move.

Now I'm doing the placing of my wave marker. A bit headache. Haha.

Thanks for the sharing, will try to simulate ur flow pattern.
