Hi All,

Relocated in Singapore a year back but would still call myself a newbie in this beautiful country that I couldn't yet explore thanks to Covid. I setup a planted aquarium but not satisfied at all and hence would want to get back to my reefing hobby as the saying goes - Once a reefer always a reefer. I'm planning to have a 4x2.5x.2.5 ft reef aquarium with a closed loop system to have a good water flow. 

To begin with, any suggestions on a good LFS or someone who makes custom reef aquarium, stand and sump

Regards

Welcome to Singapore. If you want experienced and peace of mind, can consider tank culture. Company name maybe new but staff from n30, coral reef etc. Some lfses may be able to do but likely outsourced the tank making. Depending on what you want and budget, some may choose to go lfses for economic of scales for package price.

All the best. Find more quotes for comparison and see the workmanship. Just don’t be penny wise pound foolish. If budget is a concern, can look for Atlantic tank maker. They have been in the scene for long and think so far so good also.

Thanks... for budget I would want to have an overlook look rather than on tank alone... I’ve never comprised one quality as it affects in the long run in this hobby

I’m still finalising on the other components for the tank. Once that’s done will post it accordingly as well

Accessories finalised so far -

Skimmer - Nyos Quantum 220

Calcium Reactor - Deltec Twin Calcium reactor 1500

Reactor for Phosphate & carbon - Nyos Torq 2.0

Reactor for Nitrate - Nyos Torq 2.0

Chaeto reactor - Pax bellum Arid c30

Lights - 2 x Orphek Atlantik v4

 

To be finalised

Return Pump - 2 x TBD

UV Sterilised - TBD

Chiller - TBD

Live rocks - Dry state live rock. Thinking of ceramic rock that are quite porous and in good structure. Any recommendations out here will be helpful

Apex Neptune & Doser system - Will be added in due course

I believe a lot in flow within the tank & system and hence will be adding 2 return pumps. The water return will be through a closed loop system wherein filtered water will flow back at the top of the tank through multiple outlets and at the same time will be plumbed to return in multiple outputs in the deep sand bed and in between live rocks in a hidden mode. This I think will help in adequate water circulation, food distribution for corals across the tank, zero of lesser dead spots, maximum removal of detritus (waste buildup) & organic waste

Any suggestions on the above. Please feel free to provide your valuable inputs.

I’m looking for acrylic or plexi glass custom sump makers in Singapore for my project.

Any suggestions from fellow reefers??

I believe Skimz is the only local brand that makes acrylic sumps, not sure if they are customizable though.
