Figured I would make an official thread to show off my new tank. I had an old Solona 34gallon which sprung a leak and as a result ended up buying the Innovative Marine all in one SR-60.

Anyways here's the tank:
Innovative Marine SR-60:
3 Kessil A150 pendents, two 10k one 15k.
Aquamaxx hang on back skimmer
Mp10 wavemaker.

2 Maroon Clowns
Flamback angel
Yellow tang
Starry blenny

Sure is.

Thanks,
Its the older blue model. Do you mean the collection cup as far as overflowing?

What setting are you running that MP10 on? Is that all you are using for flow. I'm really considering buying this tank and only have one MP10....Thanks

The MP10 works well, but the glass thickness is close to its limit IMO. I run it on reef crest mode on full. One MP40 would prob be best depending on what you are trying to accomplish, or you could try two MP10's which would be plenty.

I ran it on wave mode for a bit and was able to get a small wave in the tank which is surprising for its size, I was very impressed.

And yes, the returns and the MP10 are all I'm using for flow.

What kind of stuff do you have in your back chambers?

beautiful tank, i love my sr-60 great tanks!

Thanks, and yes, they are great tanks!


What kind of stuff do you have in your back chambers?

Skimmer, heater, Cemipure Elite, and Purigen. I tried to set up a mini refugium in one of the chambers, but since the water flows up, it didn't work too well and loose pieces of cheato ended up getting into the pumps.

Nice tank, Slick! Question for you about that MP10 - does it appear to be holding on OK? How long have you had it? I have an SR-60 tank as well, just bought an MP40 and even though I haven't actually installed it yet I was still considering grabbing an MP10 as a slave while they're still on sale. I have been worried about the wall thickness, though... 10mm is a little thicker than the 3/8" max that EcoTech Marine calls out for the MP10, so I wanted to speak to someone with hands-on experience to see how it was working out for them. Could you please let me know ASAP? I couldn't really get an answer out of EcoTech (naturally). Thanks!

The glass thickness is pushing the limits of the mp10. It does work though. My suggestion would be to get two mp10's, one for each side, or one mp40. I upgraded to the mp40 and having one on the tank is more than sufficient. Hope this helps.

If I recall correctly the mp10 was sliding slightly unless the wire is mounted from the top, then it holds no prob

The SR series of tanks are amazing. The 120 is my dream tank.

Have you considered ditching the hang on the back skimmer and getting the ghost skimmer? It would be a much cleaner look

Still love it, great all in one.

When they first came out I was looking into them, however i was hearing mixed reviews about performance and noise. Never had any issues with my skimmer and it does the job, so really no need to switch other then aesthetics.
