Tank Build! The insanity

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Whitney, Mar 2, 2019.

  1. Thought I'd update and share about our 93g cube we're getting ready to set up. We already have our 180g, and originally bought the 93 to downsize, but then decided hey... let's just be crazy and add in a 2nd tank! Then, we got even crazier and decided to build it a whole new stand, add a frag tank on the side, and that means plumbing it all together! Just crazy.

    This is the tank... 93g cube...

    This is the frag tank... a 60g reef ready deep blue frag tank...

    This is the stand build so far...


    This is the start of one of the doors...


    And they'll be hinged...

    This is the stand as far as we have it right now...

    And then this is the expensive sump that Matt just HAD to have, lol. I know it's a good one, but it made me cringe a bit...
    (it's a Geo SU46RD Pro with a 10 gallon ATO reservoir)

    and then these are the lights going on the tank and over the frag tank...

    an ATI 48 inch 6 bulb T5HO light fixture... going over the frag tank...

    and then this is a Radion XR15 Pro, that will go into a hybrid fixture with T5s, over the cube...

    and that's that so far. Hopefully we'll have the stand done within the next couple of weeks - getting the stand inside, then plumbing is next.

    Stay tuned for that fiasco! :D

    funny how tanks just multiply isn't it.
    Build looks great so far. Keep posting the updates.
  3. Got the stand drilled today and inside the house with the tanks set up. Plumbing is next. We're going through the random things we have from whatever and seeing what we can use / what we need to get.

    Took this... this is when your stand is big enough to sleep in :lol::roflmao:
