Hi everybody !

 

Before beginning, sorry for my poor english, you'll read lot of mistakes...

I open this new post for my next project.

Here's my current tank :

14031008372416266812051452.jpg

 

I've started it in 2006 and change the tank in 2010.

Now, I want change all (except fishes and corals) for a new project.

 

Here is my project :

14032402140816266812092688.jpg

A drop off tank in acrylic.

 

I've received many quote for the tank. There isn't many acrylic builder in France so it's expensive. I've a quote from fista filtration in uk which is interesting. If you have other adress who can build an acrylic tank for France...

 

I plan to weld himself my sump.

For material, I'll use some of my current tank.

 

Skimmer : I plan to buy a tunze 9415 or coral box DC curve skimmer D700

Return pump : Jebao DC6000

Flow pump : 2 x tunze 6055 on oscillator (ever have it)

Calcium reactor : JNS star 1 (ever have it)

Lighting :  Diy fixture, I don't have choose it and hesitate with 100W customized multichips led, aurora puck from rapidled, ecotech radion puck,...

Controller : Apex from neptune system (ever have it).

 

to be continued...

Ooh wow, they built that quickly! You'll have to keep us posted when you make/get the stand and the tank is then in situ! 


My idea of fun is cutting up little animals and gluing them to rocks!

It was very quick because they have other orders near Paris. So they deliver the tank at home for only... 10 € :)

 

Please for all of you, don't hesitate to correct my langage, it make me progress

The aluminium angle looks very similar anyway Ced so it should do perfectly. Not too expensive either which is a bonus.
