  1. Wow... Really like the write up!
  2. Have been soaking the rocks and sand in the tank with RODI to pull out any hidden phosphates or nasties. Gonna do full water change and mix in the salt. Time to start cycling!!! Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  3. Thanks PCW and everyone who contacted me with suggestions and advice. Fixed the issue after having a a closet look at the confihuration and everything seems to be running smooth now. The herbie was setup with a wet secondary drain but the height of the secondary drain was a little high. Also i need to be patient with the clarisea as it didnt have the load yet to maintain the water level inside it. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  4. Anyone running herbie style overflow with a clarisea filter?? How do you stabilise the flow into clarisea? The water level in thenoverflow box fluctuates causing the return pump compartment water level to fluctuate quite a bit. If i was to put an ATO there it might go crazy. Any advice/suggestion will help. First time using clarisea. Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  5. I might look into the nyos pumps. Are they quiet? Sent from Singapore Reef Club mobile app
  6. Hi @Ashtrax Thanks for the suggestion. The feet have been swapped out for a 50mm pad The original felt too small for my comfort. Will test this out for stability and spread. The flooring is not new heh, about 5 yrs old but nonetheless I don't want to be damaging it. As for the background, I always had oyama backgrounds (mostly black) to hide piping, wiring and camouflage the wavemakers. Recently I have come to like the see through panel at the back with the wall a short distance away. Gives the aquarium some depth at the back when there is lightning. The original plan was to ha
  7. A Quick Update on the progress. There has been some delays in getting some of the equipment partly due to COVID. Some of my preferred Ecotech products were out of stock for some time and they just came in 2 weeks ago. So the plan will still go ahead with the Radions and MP40s. I was contemplating on other options if stock didn't come in anytime soon. Wife and I wanted dark grey piping because we felt they looked nicer and they just arrived from overseas as well. Piping now done and fitted with Vectra M2, Clarisea 5000, Artica 1/4. Piping was very neat. Wi
  8. There’s been some delay because of my itchy fingers. Spotted some areas to touch up on the painted wall and decided do it myself. Which ended up making the wall worse with my not so good painting skills. Now I got to get the painter to come back redo the wall before tank delivery or setting up anything. The Wife is not impressed On another note, the tank stand from Prestech has arrived. 4040 Aluminium profile used and with the tank makers suggestion the centre support is off centre to allow maximum access to the sump. Acrylic bases for top and bottom to support the display and sump tank.
  9. Thanks everyone. I will try to update as regularly as I can
  10. Just some updates on the aquarium corner. What used to be our dining area will be converted to as aquarium corner. We wanted to patch up the hole in the wall and give it a new coat of paint to give some contrast to that area as well as to absorb some of the lights that spill out from the aquarium once we have the lighting in place. Took this chance to add in a dedicated electrical circuit for the tank with its own breaker. Here are some before , during and after pictures. Do let me know what you think!
  11. Hi all. I am starting a new thread here because the original got locked/archived. Introduction After putting it off for quite some time (years), I am re-entering the hobby and starting a new tank build! The catalyst for this build has been my wife who also expressed her interest in having an aquarium in the house and sparked back my interest in having a piece of the ocean at home. So, like most things we put our hearts into, we wanted this to be a well-planned, slow and steady project. The planning process started in Dec last year, where we begin exploring the idea of re

  13. Looking for NYOS 160 Skimmer in good condition. PM me if you have one.
  14. http://www.flashpsychic.com/ its 90% accurate.... wonder how it got it right!
  15. A mother passing by her daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Mom." With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands: Dear Mom, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing to you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you I've been finding real passion with John and he is so nice-even with all his piercings, tatt

  19. I tot it isn't safe to put the switch on the neutral wire... tot it was safer on the live wire.... Because if we were to switch the lights off... it doesn't cut they supply of electricity to the lighting just merely breaking the circuit. doesn't that mean the piece of equipment is still 'LIVE'. Tot it wasn't safe Or maybe my electrical knowledge isn't good
