Planned but not purchased yet

Wave Maker: Vortech MP40 x 2

The Qian Hu guys were really professional, kudos to them for making sure the tank was levelled and aligned.

Tank came with the V3 sump and support brace.

I wanted the chiller venting into the service yard and not the living room, so had the contractor create two openings so that I could run my piping outside.

A total of 4 insulated pipes will run to the service yard - 2 for chiller, 2 for UV.

UV will be run closed loop from the DT, have had good results combating ick and velvet when plumbed this way.

Not enough space on the aircon ledge :P

I assume your chiller will be in the service yard and your piping are running through your kitchen cabinet?

Yup, that’s correct. Though technically the piping was laid first and the cabinet was built around it.

Gunk pulled out by skimmer. The rock was previously from another tank and had been sitting dry for a few years so had a lot of dead stuff on it.

I would probably run GFO right now, old and dry LRs tend to have alot of phosphates locked in them,
