How many gallons total? Reminds me of a former member named Trailer Trash:D

The plan is a 280 display with a ART 55 gallon sump. I've got a 120 currently as the display and might use it as a fuge

If you put a cinder block in a bucket it doesn't tend to blow away during a severe wind storm. I say this should help with your insurance premium? Safety and no loss of property comes first in those sticks you come from.

The tank is a 280 reef ready custom built by Envision Acrylic. I have a GEO 8x16 calcium reactor and I'm going to start off using my ATB 840 skimmer. The main pump will be a Sequence 3600. Lightning will be ATI 8 bulb 60 inch. Of course i will keep my halides as back up

If your ever in the area hit me up and we'll tip a few back. Now the couch might cause some issues, that's my pass out spot :lmao:


Reef talk will come and who knows when. First thing is to clean out the room where the tank is going and get to the floor.

I have been trying to find out specs on the beams under the trailer and I'm coming up with nothing. As it stands I'll be purchasing porch jacks and probably build a farme under the main tank

when are we bringing home the tank? why isn't your room cleaned yet? a picture of that tank should be in this thread by now or we all call BS.

P.S. cinder blocks are more common in your neighborhood and less likely to be stolen for scrap. I suggest a couple of borrowed floor jacks to set that spot of the trailer on cinder blocks. Problem solved expense avoided. Just throw the skirt back on and she'll be fine in the wind once you have water.

No need to rent we have 2 at work. I have the fork attachment so we can just plow those through the front of the tank and lift it easy peasy! BAM there's more for the story! For an even better story we could put it in place without cutting a hole and just wham bam that tank through the wall and get to the drinking without all the work

If here's any flex at all in the floor then tiles will pop off. Guaranteed. In my experience linoleum cannot stand up to repeated wetting with saltwater. It will eventually crack and peel off.

If you're not too fussy, and especially if this is to be a fish room, I suggest putting down a good-one-side sheet of plywood and painting it with that enamel paint used for basement floors. This is the most likely surface to stand up the longest for the cheapest.

Yeah what he said! Mdo is great stuff and covered in epoxy will last for a really long time and flex and move with the floor without cracking. 2 side Mdo is going to be the best let me know if you need a wholesale price on it.

Mdo is medium density overlay it's not pressed board like mdf. It's exterior rated plywood with a resin overlay so it takes paint really well. Just seal the plywood edges before you lay it down. It's what they use for a lot of outside signs and what not. It comes in all the standard thicknesses.

No just thawed ice from the great ice storm of 2017. The great squirrel fire of 2017 thawed it out.

Rain water, MoDOT road salt and beat juice doesn't count. But that is more than Pife in his display tank.

For the right price rams will let anyone touch his clam. I've seen it happen.

Not mine. I've never had a clam that big. :celeb1:

Sorry I missed this extravaganza. You guys are awesome and this is the best build thread I have ever read. I laughed my way through all nine pages. It really funny that it took 9 pages and many months to get a picture of the empty tank. Just think... 9 more moths and the tank will be on the stand and in another 9 months it will have water in it! Can't wait!!

Mythbusters proved that beer/whiskey goggles was actually a thing so I'm going to say if beer goggles make the 4 and a half at the bar look more like a 7 then it's definitely going to make your tank look better but hey I'm no rocket surgeon so you might want a second opinion.... but if you want to forge ahead and become a scientist and do the experiment yourself then I say go for it ninja!
