I decide to renovate a 40 year old building and turn it into a boutique hotel with a large marine tank which can be viewed from 3 sides and also from the top .

Tank's size

5 m (length) x 2.5m (width) x 3m (height)

Life support system:

12.75 m (length)x 1.1 m (width) x 1 m (height) for ATS , Mangrove (mud substrate) and refugium ( growing macro algae )

Skimmer: 2.5 m (height) 1.7mx1.7 m (foot print) rated capacity 100,000 litres

Return pumps: Red dragon 230 watts x6

Light : Natural sunlight through sky light roof




Perspective picture of the tank : date of completion June 2017

Two and a half years years ago I started with 7 -8 young idols now I have 2 grown up idols left . They do not pick on corals much but it is quite hard to tell because most of my corals have been picked at by my butterfly fish . I will attempt to do a FTS of my current tank and post it on this forum . It is a semi outdoor tank so it is quite hard to get the lighting right as there is excessive glare due to natural sunlight reflection .

You are welcome ! The completion date should be around Jun 2017 . We also have a glass bridge across the top of the aquarium for feeding and for taking selfie . All Reef central members will get a deep discount . We also have an aqua room where you can sleep with the fish , the first and only one in Thailand .

what does it do? I mean, it says sand filter, so I'm assuming it uses sand as a bio media to filter? But I could be way off.

Sand filters are normally used for swimming pools, but also in very large tanks such as public aquaria.

Dave.M

Dave. M is totally correct as they are normally used in swimming pools but large aquaria do need a mechanical filter system to keep the water clean and clear .So instead of using socks , sand filters are frequently employed in large aquaria .

An example of sand filters used in large aquaria like this 20,000 gallon tank in long island.

Decided to purchase a hydro wizard ecm 75 from Germany . I placed the order last night and should get it on 24 th November . I am trying to figure out a way to mechanically move the pump up and down the entire height of the aquarium ( approx 3m) . I have spoken to the elevator 's technician of linking the signal from the elevator to the pump's housing so that when a passenger in the elevator presses the button up or down , the pump will move up and down accordingly so as to create a random motion of waves and hotel's guests become part of the life supporting system of the aquarium. Linking the signal is the easy part but to find a mechanical process of moving the pump under sea water ( very corrosive) is the difficult part .

Only the armature has to be exposed to saltwater. This would have to be mainly of 216 stainless steel for strength to stand up to the pressure of such a large pump but some of the moving parts could be of plastic.

Thanks for your suggestions. I do not have much information on 216 stainless as it is not son common in the market but I did some research on 316 stainless which is readily available but it does not seem to bode well in sea water.

I did share the same concern as you about noise and after your suggestion , did have a few words with the architect . However he rest assured me that the noise would be minimal as the Acrylic is very thick (10 cm)and wrapped around by very thick concrete (30 cm). So Sound wave could not come by way of convection as there is no opening and would be very hard to conduct through thick concrete and acrylic. Pumps are also located in another room adjacent to the guest room but is insulated by sound proof materials.

This pump is gigantic. Normally producers of pumps label them with the double of flow it indeed afford. But not Panta Rhei, Abyzz or Royal Exclusive. That means that these pumps make the double of the flow than the most others by same liter label.

Its great that you're making such good progress. What season is it over there? I know it's spring/summer in Australia,and it's winter in the the U.S.

Is this going to be a fish only tank? If so lighting only has to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye since there's no coral to demand anything strong.

At the moment we are at the beginning of our winter season but it is still around 30 C . It will be a reef tank not fish only and therefore we are looking for a deep penetration LED to aid natural sunlight.

I agreed with you, in the past it can be scary ! But nowadays the law is very strict and authorities do pursue construction related works seriously . The construction of this aquarium is not a DIY job but under supervision of senior civil engineer and built by a professional construction company . So you can rest assured that it is safe and sound . Please do come back to Thailand to enjoy more Singha beer and we do have many more varieties of Thai beers for your consumption too !!!!

If I remember correctly you will build flow combination of closed loop and stream. If you allow my mind forget closed loop and buy a second ECM 75. With two of this pumps you can simulate fantastic ebb and flow variants and also waves. Closed Loop will need much more energy also pipes etc. Also in the area of the closed loop you can't put a coral

I am using a 15,000 l tank to store sea water for my current tank . I am at a planning stage of trying to use this tank to service both my current tank and the future aquarium.
I might be tempted to move fish that are too big for my current tank to the new aquarium.

No aggressions from these fish towards theier own species or other species . They were all very small two and a half years ago and since had grown into a very large fish together . They were quite aggressive towards their own species when were first introduced into the tank but after a week all aggressions were completely gone and they now lived in peace and harmony execpt only for a few occasions when they chased each other briefly for reasons of territory encroachment .

@LJC6780, the word with the unfamiliar letters, gre, means greetings. It is not part of his name, which is Torben. Gre can alternately be written as gruesse. If you say 'gruesome' like 'gruesuh', you'd stand a reasonable chance of being understood by native speakers. :)

Ah! Thank so much for the explanation! I know it is off topic but I had no idea how to pronounce the word and it was bothering me! I also thought Torben was his last name. [emoji4] oops. (I like that name btw) anyway, thanks! Gre!

needle wheel, check out ATB skimmers they are used in many public/big aquarium around the world, also used by eshan from triton for their display tank, from what i have seen same quality is same as royalexclusive when not above..

sirichok,

I see your dilemma, I will admit the temptation if money and space and electrical is no object to go venturi is great. I too love venturi systems. But in terms of space running cost and availability needle wheel is a winner. None the less it goes with out saying MRC and R2K can help with both systems.

If you want a proven custom skimmer with either method take a look at Bill Wanns Custom skimmers. He has a 20,000 gallon (75,000 liter) aquarium in his house.

I am a big fan of Royal, but I think their regular production models maxs out at 20,000 liter rating.

If you can get Reef Octopus they have a large Commercial selection.

Look forward to seeing what you decide on.

I am sure you know this but if you decide on venturi skimmer please make sure to get the best pumps possible :-)

you will find arguments for both, but if you look at the data there is very little difference in performance

for that matter, there is very little difference in performance of all skimmers, regardless of price

personally I like to have several skimmers running, I have four on my 1400g system: 2 downdraft Becket injectors skimmers Barr 5220's, an RK2 25PE and a BK 500. All produce lots of skimmate. Having several running at the same time increases the probability than one of them will be tuned properly. I do not believe you can over skim, at least that has been my experience. Skimmers are not very efficient at removing waste, about 20-25% efficiency, much lower than carbon for example.

Don't know the kW/h price in Thailand. Germany is between 0.25 till 0.30 EUR. Big coral shops change to Royal Exclusive to lower the costs. Think in Thailand this is no argument.

If one is not big enough use two skimmers.

2 skimmers may not be a bad idea for redundancy. I'd imagine by the time you're up and running there will be a significant investment in live stock etc, so you really don't want a single point of failure. Especially if you're not able to just pop to the shop and buy another.

I just want to let you know I've not got any experience with big aquaria let alone one this huge but I do work in an industry where redundancy is king. As a single point of failure could literally be the difference between life and death.

So I do assume that getting a skimmer or 2 for a tank this large is not a matter of just popping down to your local fish store.

Very cool the acrylic is going to be held with pressure or your reinforcing it somehow ?

We are using 90 cm thick acrylic and a lot of silicone adhesives .

The silicone will hold that kind of weight

Im guessing you are inserting it into the wall or making some kind of lip that would hold the weight of the water

Sorry I did not go into construction details of how to install the acrylic under pressure . Yes you are quite right there will be a concrete lip that will take the weight of the acrylic and using silicone adhesive to hold it together .

Creating a new entrance as contigency plan for acrylic viewing panels in case the swimming pool works do not finish in time and will obstruct bringing in huge acrylic viewing panels .
