Hello Reefers!

Iwarna is setting up a Display tank @ it's new show room! I know it's too early to post as we are still doing renovation but I CAN'T WAIT!

So some pictures to share and I will try my best to find time to post pictures weekly on the progress of the tank. We will be using the TRITON METHOD OF REEFING for this new tank setup

Iwarna's deepest tank for keeping SPS corals so fingers cross!

19mm Glass base, 15mm Low-iron crystal glass (3 view)

So troublesome for the tank maker to climb out, he choose to eat his lunch inside the tank (Glass is 34 inches in height).

Nice? Mind to share the opening date and what services provided in the showroom?

A SHOWROOM that does 'Show and tell" :groupwavereversed: as we wont be doing direct retail but willing to share products and services advice esp when people have queries about the TRITON method of reefing.

A nice air condition environment for reefers and hobbyist to drop by to chat and discuss reefing ideas while being surrounded by "under the sea and under the river" ambiance. And of course a referral's meeting place for any new hobbyists who would like to start an aquarium!

Services aka to what Iwarna has always been providing, any reefing or aquarium needs, we will provide and deliver!

No opening date set as yet, but progress of the tanks will be updated in this thread.

Suggestion - why not have a date on the wall of the triton tank which show the no of days the tank without water change? Just like those I saw on a local pizza store showing the numbers of plate they had sold. It would be interesting to know how long the tank run without a water change ect..

Hi leejwa,

Sure! Will provide as much information with regards to the tank as possible. Will even put Triton test results of the tank on a monthly basis. Actually TRITON method is not against water change. It is a very detailed water test use as a tool on the adjustments required to fine tune your water. If your tank has more serious problems, TRITON Error correction sheet will advise you to change water! More important, Triton testing focus on adjusting the required parameters rather than doing water change as the only remedy.

Customers who adopted other methods of reefing such as Balling, ZeoVit or the Berlin methods have also sent tank water for TRITON lab tests to give a more detailed understanding of their water parameters.

Inlets and outlets for Recirculating overflow box.

Picture taken before a 2nd overflow panel (2 inch gap away from the main overflow panel) is added. Once this 2nd glass panel is added, water from main tank is suck via underflow and excess from top. This 2nd panel will block the visual of the recirculating pumps suctions.

      Dear Reefers, need advice.
      Set-up
      I upgraded to a larger All-in-one tank 12.5g  from IM Nuvo 10g. I have a) customized Media basket and b )the Minimax Innovative marine desktop reactor from my previous tank. I repurposed both to become two refugiums because I have the accessories (ie free) and why two refugium?:- because there is a seperator in the backchamber so it ended up with two. I installed the Chaetomax LED light 2 days ago and both share the LED light. A friend kindly provided me a pinch of Chaeto so I am all set. And today just bought some Tiger pods and added to both refugiums (this is for fun as I know I should have waited LONGER. Me bad.)
      Here is the question: the Minimax reactor is acrylic and transparent. Is it a good idea to place that into the AIO backchamber as a repurposed refugium? Will the "leaked" light cause the whole AIO chamber to grow algae??!!! Or because of the presence of the two lumps of Chaetos in their respective refugiums, they will take up the nutrients and the surrounding will be algae free? Reefer bros/sis with such similar experiences, please enlighten me. Thanks. (The Media Basket is black on 2 sides but the chamber is black so in essence there should be less light "leakage"). Or maybe it doesn't even matter? Or should i make a customized shade so that the Chaetomax LED light only shine on the two refugiums? Or i should get rid of the repurposed Minimax reactor and purchase another Media basket (like S$58!!!!) to prevent light leakage. You can see I need real HELP!
      Past Mistake
      I know what DOESNT work. In my old IM 10G tank, i saw Innovative Marine marketing this outside LED magnetic light. Use a razor to slice off the black lamination and shine a LED light through. And the video looks so cool. I had some empty space in the backchamber and I did exactly that and put some rough material in the chamber for the Chaeto to cling on. The result is the whole area become a sludge fest and the algae blocked the light and I had one extra area to clean. On hinsight, I should have used the Media Basket as a refugium instead of using the "free" space in the chamber. Too much work and fault is mine. Had I used the Media basket, it might have worked.
      Caveat
      I know there is a proportionate effective ratio between size of tank and the refugium size. Having two small refugiums might be pointless.. yes water change,  yes good tank maintenance etc.. it is just hobbyist tinkering but at least I hope i can achieve optimal tinkering with my reefer bros' advice here. After all this is the joy of the hobby to experiment and see the outcome.
      Super thanks!!!

      Hi fellow hobbyists, 
      I am very new to the marine tank set up. Currently running a seahorse only species tank with 2 canisters filter at each end for filtration.
      I have another FW tank which i intend to convert into a sump that will serve the seahorse tank but i am still kinda confused on the proper compartmentalization of the sump tank which i hope to include a refugium.
      Below is a draft sketch of the sump tank i intend to set up. 
      Can fellow hobbyist provide some inputs/alterations as to where i should change or improve upon?
      Also, how do i know what pump size i should get for the tank?
      My DT tank is 126cm x 23cm x 38cm(height) with water volume of about 90 to 92 litres only.
      Intended sump tank dimension is 88cm x 17cm x 23cm (height)
      Hoping to get some valuable inputs. TIA

      Hi, 
      Can anyone pls explain about sump tank.. is refugium consider part of sump or it is actually one of many other different types of sump setup?  Or can anyone direct me to refugium discussion in SGReef. Cant seem dig the topic.
      Can i just rely just sump tank with LR and sand + micro algae and some mechanical filter? Or just mechanical filter will do? 
       
      I had cycle my tank for like 4mths and still empty tank with LR and 3inch sand. Added some bacteria and followed all instruction by the Henry from Marine Life. Will the bacteria dead as there is no food..lol 
      Sorry for the lengthy post.
