Starting a tank thread here to record all my progress and for sharing.

*Feel free to comment any good or bad things 

*Will encourage the rest to make a tank thread to share the hobbies

I've actually wrote an article regarding why I choose to build a custom tank. Link Below!

https://www.sgreefclub.com/home/choosing-a-custom-build-tank/

Tank Spec & Equipment

Tank Size: 4 x 2 x 2 inches  (Not exact 2ft) Peninsula tank.

Overflow: Bean Animal w valve control (One return, One overflow, One Emergency)

Return Pump: Skimz QuietPro 12.0

Skimmer: Bubble Magnus C9

Wave Maker: Gyre XF350 

Lights: Maxspec R420R and 2x Aquazonic Lightset with 2 tube EA using ATI Tube. 

Calcium Reactor:  Skimz CM122

Chiller: Hailea HK -300A

Biopellet: Reef Octopus BR110

Not sure if I miss out anything.

So here is the final product on 29/12/20.

If you haven't read the article why I decide to go custom and peninsula. I will just summarize here!

xFbwQlPxrGetZn-V0SLE1wYHIweFkCJo29FtbcL5QXRX-PnT_6sWHegt9NAkXshzszqlCB-fDejhv3SXQn5av7H0ZtOxVhCR2jpT6xJ1DqiHLZBwzSi34L6xtcSxb3F7oAOTHWM9

When I choose my resale flat, there's not much space for me to build my tank. I always want a 3 view tank therefore I decide to make a small partition along my walkway.

So I engage with Aquarium Artist to follow the ideal design I have in mind and here is the outcome!

y9fSTSnw0eXDQbDNm2E19sqlAdHtwq7iFIkrQludlS3GFSJ-Vl8PG86itmtupvVnEYhVhdmpqihJGsyyCpBzekd-eyyYuKXmsBx2POpdFtxOTc39zAIAHphg6ZtkhyZhJjyQitY0

Many will sure have question like will your living room be hot? Will your chiller make your sump hot? I will answer the question here.

As a Marine enthusiast, I will want my fish to be happier than me. I bought the brand new model of this hailea Chiller. 

It is not as noisy as the old model, and the hot air that come out of it is not really hot at all.

As for my door, I've build ventilation for the air to escape.

IMG_0476-1024x838.jpg

As for my sump design, I build a frag tank over it. There's wooden support from the sump and the chiller to make sure the tank won't go slanted.

I won't advise anyone to do the same but I wish to experience on it so I requested it to build this way.

H7OF4o81tQ1C2XKLas2gBoz45eq5ak5uiZtB1V6NP969XOSP4CXvtW0glgutaW_pkrb2tv3fQkJC8xYt94fE08Vta2uX1sgENRXli8BA9cFFmHpCkpMqjTusFUQjo1RMwhuhsbbn

Please ignore the wiring, Old picture.

If you really wish to follow what I have build, do a monthly preventive maintenance checking if there's any dent on your chiller, any crack on your sump and any leak from your PVC.

For all the output of the flow, I only use one return pump. Yes for everyone reading this to take note, always have a spare pump at home.

If you often travel, get two return pump instead of one incase the failure of one pump cause the death of all your babies.

For me I've connected all the input of my equipment with one return pump. But I've a spare pump in my store room ready anytime!

File_006.jpeg.bdfd0760b096ccaacc48631da1d5c46f.jpeg

So after setting up all the equipment and etc, this is the rockscape that I came out with.

RLa8Ai6QLAtpdah4uJSKCnO2-MP8EgUuwWpy6ZC5jHryULNqGvs6OvhIS1f5SYL47Xo7FSBE9lOKwM0Bdcn35_YhzBmxUUEZhUPh8gAgo9Ed1LMD8AXPec0ISR-EYlJQfbqupyY3

I need to warn everyone that always EPOXY your rock. I have countless time that my rock fall because of my hand sticking in to glue more stuff. If I have a chance 

to go back time I will use EPOXY when it is dry.

General FAQ.

How long do I cycle the tank?

2 Weeks

What Bacteria did I dose?

Microlift Nite Out and Special Blend.

What is your weekly maintenance schedule like?

On Monday I will change to a new filterwool, pour the skimmer cup, Dose 30ML of Special Blend, dose 5 ML Phos Out.

On Wednesday I will pour the skimmer cup, change the filterwool and on UV light till Friday midnight, dose 5 ML Phos Out.

On Saturday I will dose 90ML of Special Blend, Dose 5ML Phos Out, Wash my skimmer cup, Dose Redsea AB+, Parameter Test, change filterwool.

On Monthly, check if there's any leakage on my PVC, check if there's any salt creep on the equipment (Lights, skimmer etc), Check if all the plugs are fully into the power socket, check if there's any crack or dent on the whole system, check if the wavemaker/return pump dirty or anything stuck near the propeller. I call this preventive measurement.

Trust me. Keeping a marine tank there's always up and down and learning from experience. I will encourage everyone to make a tank thread to share their experience as many different have their own style of reefing. During my reefing journey I've made a lot of mistake which I will be more careful next time.

I find out that I actually love to have more fish than corals, therefore I've decide to change from a sps tank to a soft coral lps tank as they do better in a higher nutrient setting.

Right now this is my parameter of my tank.

  • Ca 450.
  • PO4 0.02
  • NO3 20
  • KH 8
  • PH 8.2
  • Mag 1350
  • Salinity 1.026
  • Temp 26c

IMG_3584.JPG.af5bf6ca0750d7ec99c059d3fdaa95f5.JPG

Oh yes, because you question why I choose to have schooling tangs, I've plan to build a tank that take up the whole wall in a very near future after M.O.P. So I want to grow them since they are young. DO NOT FOLLOW unless your WIFE or PARENTS allow you do have a big tank in future. I REPEAT DO NOT FOLLOW.

Reefing is also about Commitment, starting from how often you willing to change your filterwool and how often you willing to test your water.

To keep a successful reef tank, you need to be committed.

I love to take macro-shots of my corals, do visit my instagram https://www.instagram.com/floratiaracoral/

Yes I repeat, I encourage everyone to share their babies and tank! If you want to try something new like me, surely people will make comments but they just want you to know what you are doing (I'm guilty for it HAHA). But If your tank turn out to be successful and for yourself to enjoy, why not. Just don't harm this babies we loveeeeeeeeeeee. They don't choose to be in your tank. Do your research and prepare for plan B. 

Years of reefing, I must say a CHILLER is a Must. I used to stick by as a person that use FAN only for a 5ft Tank. After I use Chiller, the corals grow faster and healthier. REALLY.

So....... Enjoy my thread. Comment anything down below.

Recently Gotten another IP Camera to have a better view of my tank.

Very easy to setup, just follow the instruction can get it done in a minute!

Tada, view of my tank.

 

Pros

  • Why restraint yourself to view your tank when only at home?
  • Can see if your return pump is working or not HAHAHA
  • Can see if any fish is being naughty and aggresive.
  • Can see if your coral drop or not ;/
  • Not so worry about your tank!

Cons

  • You  will use this more than using facebook....

So I recommend everyone to get a camera to see your tank!

There's many people asking how is my schooling Blue Tang doing.

Here it goes.

File_000.jpeg.84ec1631b1e99e1ae8897d5a9d977ce6.jpeg

File_002.jpeg.06571ed31b0c33a46fddea4cbc050ca4.jpeg

 

I've introducing them together to prevent them be aggressive towards each other. 

Well as mention I won't recommend anyone to get so many tangs unless they have plans for them when them grow up, whether to sell or rehome.

Anyway here is the latest FTS!

File_001.jpeg.1f87fa07cd04f176bb5da4d0570d7269.jpeg

Recently I have some time on my hand so I decide to tidy up my cables in my sump.

File_006.jpeg.f48fad3e9d1aeb40fa08d6baf0b00ed2.jpeg

Got this online to secure my cable together

File_005.jpeg.1114c6997d92c26c731d623dd0736f65.jpeg

 

Let the picture do the talking!

File_003.jpeg.77cf8d41564c9fe3b7af02ef8803971f.jpeg

 

Tada, neater than before I guess. Take note that the power bar is screwed into my cabinet deeply. Do not use double sided tape or foam tape to secure your power bar to the cabinet. I will occasionally check if is loosen or not for my power bar as well as other socket.

That is all for today. I'm using magnetic door which allow me to remove the whole door to do maintenance for my sump. Will show you guys next time!

Other than blue tang, I also love to keep Zebrasoma tang.

They live in harmony, maybe because many of them, it spread the aggression.

Now the list goes down

4x Scopas Tang
1x Indo Sailfin Tang
1x Redsea Sailfin Tang
1x Purple Tang
2x Yellow Tang
1x Hybrid Scopa Tang
1x Gem Tang

Enjoy the photo!
Meanwhile next post I’ll post how do I take care of my nitrate again on next post!

Gem Tang recovered from ich so waiting for the scarring to recover!

The scopas is relatively new? 

Thanks, I feed sea weed twice per day and have algae grazer for them to eat. They are very very fat. Scopas have been in tank more than 4 months already.

Hybrid scopas come with pinch stomach, glad it is getting fat too.

Ah I see. Hope it gets as robust as the rest too.

Well the picture caption itself. Inside the tank and outside the tank.

Current picture if my Zoas garden. The Caring for Zoas is very simple, stable nutrient around 20ppm nitrate, not too strong light and not high KH. They will grow fast and overtake the fragplug.
They are not as trendy as before and most of the price went down because they are more supply (fast grower).
If you have space in your tank do consider having a Zoas garden because it is more beautiful like a GSP all over the rock.

Hammer garden. Not enough budget to expand it but I got most of the colours I guess?

Gem tang recovered from marine velvet. Actually most of my fish recover by enticing them and feed them plenty of seaweed. Writing an article on it.

I’ve introduce my fishes from QT, however disease still manage to enter my tank when there’s only 1 fish when I just started. DAMN AT.

Now I will just make sure my fish is fat and healthy so they will be immune from diseases.

Currently all the fish are disease-free and healthily swimming, check my Instagram story out!

It’s been long since I update, I stop using phosout because there’s not around po4 to reduce my no3.
Trying Orca titanium now since they mention they do not require any po4.


Anyway here’s some picture of my corals!

Enjoy!

Recently I’ve change to using reefroid because there’s a smaller packet out there. Will update again after a week does my coral look happier.
Anyway really really love the beautiful bright colours of my Zoas. Wish to see more zoa garden we had in Singapore.
I’ve stop using Phosout too and change to using ROWAPHOS to have more stability (incase I lazy to dose rowaphos)

I also stop using special blend and change to using ORCA TITANIUM to reduce my nitrate. This is due to my po4 showing near zero thus reducing the effect of my nitrate dropping. ORCA TITANIUM claim that it doesn’t require any po4 to reduce no3 so here I am trying it now.
