Hey guys
Here I want to introduce you my divider tank. The tank contains 5.500 liter and is 3.80m x 1.45m x 1.10m.
12.5 feet x 4.75 feet x 3.6 feet = 1.450 US gallon
I removed the rockwork after one year because I don't like the massive middle shaft. Here is a video before removing rockwork and shaft.

Wow very impressive setup.

So what is all that reddish stuff on either side? some type of cyano bacteria or algae? Or just rock rubble?

This is a dream build. cannot wait for more picture!

did you have any aggression problems with so many different types of fish specifically the hogfish?

Achilles Torben
09/25/2016, 12:55 AM
Just Bodianus opercularis stressed the Pseudanthias pulcherimus and red Cirrhilabrus sometimes. Cirrhilabrus solorensis is a bad boy against other Cirrhilabrus. In new setup only Cirrhilabrus naokoae with a few female will introduce. No aggressions between wrasses any moor.

The middle shaft is bad think for current and light. It looks to cornered and not naturally. Also there isn't enough light for corals to grow in the middle because corals in top produce shadow.

New Deko start!
My idea was a whaleskeleton. Big cave and much place for coral and a minimum of rocks for maximal swimming/growing space for fish/corals. This is a result of my ideas an Norbert Dammers implementation. The pipes should be covered with crushed stones.

That is awesome looking. I have never considered crushed stone over PVC. It looks great. Any chance we can get close up pictures of the stone, I'm curious as to how porous it is and how frags get attached to it.

Thanks,

Fish an corals go to garage

No fish diet by stress. One little hepatus want to hide under my diving shoes an I contact plan. I thought he will die because I can see my footprint on his skin. But after one week everything was okay but footprint stay for several weeks :)

Impressive tank and overall setup! I believe you did well going for the new rock structure and the end result will reimburse the hassle of the change. It will become a beautiful reef!

Is the crushed coral glued on the bottom or just laying around? I was thinking about detritus accumulation and removal.

Achilles Torben
10/16/2016, 09:51 AM
Thanks
Coral crush is glued to pvc plate. Detritus isn't a problem because the reef is free and the four Panta Rhei Hydro Wizards ECM 63 run by different profiles and there is extreme flow under and in reef. Works fine. Pumps run max 40% - enough reserve

wow big works done! looking great

do you think the Panta Rhei works best with bare bottom? or in your case rock bottom?

I went with Emperor Aquatics 80 watt UV too (now called Pentair).

:) you're right! I don't like any system for drop of this and drop of this every day. Also I doesn't like phosphatadsorber to change. I plan to change may be 1500 liter or more a week. When everything is finish I will be able to change 2000 liter ( 500 gallon) within 5 min! Because sump is big enough I doesn't have to stop the system. I am not sure if I use natural saltwater in future or will work with normal salt.

Thank you. The Led isn't the right spectrum. ATI will sell new cluster for changing in future. But I think with HQI I make everything fine so I must not change the clusters absolutely.

Known switch from HQI to plasma in combination with led or T5. Plasma need half energy of HQI und make same job.

I think we are fish guys ;)

Visit Dejong (wholesaler) today. Few pick ups.

2 Apolemichthys arcuatus adult

2 Zebrasoma rostratum adult
2 Naso elegans adult and juv
1 Naso vlamengii
1 Acanthurus Achilles small
1 Acanthurus Leucosternum
1 Acanthurus lineatus

Pick up live rocks to help introducing fish in quarantine. Also a big Naso elegans well acclimated for the other tangs eating his po to improve on enteric flora. 85 Watt UV run. 300 liter natural seawater.

https://youtu.be/QtymAW7pFyY



https://youtu.be/qupVG4C9bfE

The smaller black tang chase the bigger one sometimes. I thing no real fights and no big risk. The bigger one seems to be a little bit devote. Last months no Bandits in Europe. Pick up the first two arrive at Dejong. Eating Mysis one house after introducing. Though they're different size but nearly the same. Think isn't male and female. Maybe two males because threaten a bit when encounter. Also they are in great shape and very bully. Heart about adult flagfin changing Sex. Somebody can confirm?

Zanclus cornutus in good shape and very small. Normally arrived in very bad condition and bigger in Europe. One our after introducing eaten no frozen food but picking at live rocks.

Nasos and black tangs eaten directly frozen. Also powder blue and clown tang. Achilles does not see again after introducing. Achilles are always pussies. Achilles and powder blue are very small. Hope to pair up with bigger ones in display tank. Display tank is ich free after quarantine fish about a few months. Little bit scary to quarantine rightly. Copper kill to much fish in the past. Hope to get all new fish into great shape. After this I will test maybe tank transfer. Achilles doesn't work this method because normally didn't pick up food for two days after catch and handle with him. Will see

I've denied a tiny Zebrasoma Gemmatum with literal line syndrome for 500 EUR.

Thinking about a little bit different quarantine method. Flow over 1.5 meters per second Cryptocaryon cannot settle on fish. Want to build a glass quarantine aquarium with double bottom and place a Hydro Wizard ECM 63 in there with a flow of 50.000 liter. So I will reach the 1.5 meters per second flow. Oodimium will need 5 days Cryptocaryon 3 days and fish will free of these diseases. No stress like tank transfer or hypersalinity. No problems with copper.

Somebody can say something about my plans? Is this realistic?

It seems like a very high flow rate for the fish to be in constantly. To work properly, they would have to stay in this flow for the full 5 days, day and night. I'm not sure but it seems like they would be physically stressed by this.

The TTM method is quite easy and you've got the space for it. I've just finished taking a couple of tangs through this and they did superb. I know you've thought about this method to ensure no ich. Although it takes 12 days vs 5, there is really no need for a rush as you'd likely QT them for a month or two anyway.

Water level is down on this pic because of water change. So Skimmer is turn off. Collecting cup is connected to Skimmer?!

In this picture:

It looks like the Skimmer cup drain is not connected. It looks like it is supposed to be connected to the drain. Yellow hose.

Ahh my bad. I guess my RO did not come with one. I just have the extra small skimmer though.

I looked at the pictures and thought the skimmer cup was overfull, popping out the top and the hose was disconnected.

Hey Torben,

wow, was ein mega Projekt, Hut ab. Sehr beeindruckend. Hast du in etwa im Überblick, wieviel KWh die ganze Anlage monatlich bzw. jährlich braucht?

wow, what an impressive project, kudos. Can you state a guesstimate kilowatt hour consumption?

Hallo Sebastian,
ne eigentlich nicht.

1 Blue Eco RFP 900 Watt läuft aktuell mit 380 Watt. In Zukunft weniger
1 Bubble King Deluxe 500 mit 2 mal 58 Watt.
3 Royal Exclusive 80 Watt Red Dragon 3 all run by 15 Watt. One for Filter and two in water tanks for water change.
4 x 80 Watt UV
4 Panta Rhei Hydro Wizards ECM 63 all run by 40 watt max in this moment.
6 time ATI Sirius X6 for 12 hours a day with sunrise und sunset. Maybe 9 hours max Watt a day
3 time HQI 1.000 Watt for only 4 hours a day

60 kW per day

In quarantine
One 30 Watt and one 80 Watt
Two hang on Skimmer from Deltec
2 Sicce streamer size 3 I think

May be 6 kW per day

For corals tank hope to do the job with one Abyzz 200. If this pump isn't enough will buy Royal Exclusive RD3 230 Watt Speedy and 4 time ATI Sunpower 8 x 80 Watt

May be 35 Watt per day

Total 100 kW per day

Hey Torben,

thanks for the detailed summary. So your main tank costs round about ~500€ a month. That's less than I thought.
I'm already budgeting for the future though it'll be about 2.500l (660G).

Hello,
in this moment everything waiting for me to go ahead ;)

Will start plumbing next days.

In this moment I started tank transfer for the fish I picked up in last weeks.
2 Apolemichthys arcuatus
2 Naso elegans
1 Naso vlamengii
1 Apolemichthys xanthopunctatos
1 Synchiropus splendidus
8 Hemitaurichthys polylepis x zoster hybrid
2 Zebrasoma rostratum adult

All a in good condition so I started TTM for my first time.

Hypersalinity does not work for me.

Copper is to dangerous because I lost fish in the past. Jbl copper test show me 0.25 and ICP 0.40

Hope I do TTM right. I read many articles here and think I am on the right way.

How is the tank transfer method working for you? Do you have fish free of C. irritans now?

Achilles Torben
01/15/2017, 01:16 AM
In this moment fantastic. No lost until now. Stress also don't kill a fish. Can't recognize Cryptocaryon. May be fungus on end of fins by two fish reducing. Zanclus cornutus only eats frozen food and no pellets. Slimmish don't know he will made it. Other fish fat and healthy. Some tips from other RC members is to make between tank transfer a 30 min stop in formalin and melachit green for pimp up the TTM. Also have to use metronidazole for a few days. In this moment I ordered this products and when arrived I will test it.

No problem I can reach the platform by hand. Put four buckets on it. Go up and put the salt of the bucket into the tanks. Just have to do that 6 times and I am ready. ;) My only sport I do :)

The heaviest is to fill up the buckets with salt in big bag

Hello guys,
good news this evening. After Centropyge interrupta spawning also my Acanthurus polyzona spawn and make a big cloud.

I have two pairs of tangs. Polyzona and hepatus. The only four adult tangs. So I am sure that tangs change sex like angels. I can't believe that is just big luck for me. This two pairs introduced as nearly same size but juvenile.

I will go on to pair up more tangs like Zebrasoma gemmatum, Acanthurus leucosternum and Acanthurus achilles. Leucosternum and Achilles I have medium sized. Will pair up with very tiny ones. My gemmatum are nearly same size but they are very aggressive against each other. Finger crossed

I had a few lost because Po4 was 0 and I didn't realized that. But in this moment everything is fine. The coraltank is in the same watersysthem like my display tank. The coral tank is nearly filled up so I can clean it up an put all my corals into DT. I am so happy because the DT is nearly without coral in this moment and looks like a moon landscape. Will take a few frags from the rare coral and let them grow in fragtank. The colours are better than in this video.
