hey guys,:beer:

after 5 years... I realized my new tank system...
and i want to share it with all of you again.. some of you will remember my older tanks.


here are the facts:77

main tank: 1,40 x 0,70 x 0,60 cm
overflow and pipes over the right sight an the full length of 0,70 in a 20cm chamber.
real size of the main tank 1,20 cm x 0,70 x +/- 0,55 cm

Skimmer: Bubble King Supermarine 200 with Red Dragon 3 speedy
return pump: Royal Exclusive Red Dragon3 speedy 8m3
Closed Loop: Royal Exclusive Red Dragon3 speedy 8m3 (my first plan was a RD3 18m3 but I think later and with a big stock of SPS I don't like the flow. so I will add a Vortech MP40Wqd...
CA-reactor: Schuran JetStream 1
Ro/Di: Vertex Puraktec deluxe 100
Zeofilter: Bubble Magus over the return pump
lightning: ATI Hybrid 8x54W and 3x 75W LED

I plan this tank at march this year til today. I hope the tank arrived next week.

i think i will go full Zeo again... and water change water change water change :spin3:

I started to plan the new one since march this year with many many sketches and ideas. Some crazy ideas and other that leads my girlfriend to do this to me :debi:

...Yes, this is a good system, because I would like to see no technology in the aquarium.
The Closed loop system allows this, because there are only PVC pipes which one sees and one can hold this small.
However, current pumps are big and disturb the optics


Very slick :D

Hey Dennis,

nice Setup. Is the reflow of your closed Loop only on one site of the Tank?

I had the same in My Tank 170 cm long but this cause a dead flow area under the pump outlet so I had to put a mp40 on se oposit site of the Tank.

Kurz in Deutsch :beer:

Hast du die Ausströmung der Pumpen nur auf einer Seite? Hatte ich auch so aber dann war genau beim Ablaufschacht an der Riffrückwand zu wenig Strömung und ich musste noch ne MP40 auf die andere Seite machen.

Beim nächsten mal würde ich über den Boden noch zwei Rohre Richtung Ablaufschacht pumpen lassen.

I had decided only on 230 W RD3 with 18,000 l/h, then am, however, under it on an other RD3 speedy 8,000 l/h.
I would have included in the plan more outlets also mutually from the opposite side by the bigger pump.
However, I will fall back on the MP40Wqd and instal this later.
The construction becomes rather aerial, so that I will have here a good current. I hope it ;)

The Closed loop is sucked in the shaft and by the shaft back more than from two to three outlets go.
I have calculated over and over again doubt had with drillings in the ground disc and with perhaps problems in the later course of the aquarium. Absolutely it would be to be had been cool from the left side still two or only one outlet. But for me and for the later construction of the aquarium it becomes better I think without.

auf deutsch zurück :) :reading:
Ich hatte mich ja erst für die 230W RD3 mit 18.000 l/h entschieden, bin dann aber doch runter auf eine weitere RD3 speedy 8.000 l/h.
Ich hätte bei der größeren Pumpe mehr Auslässe eingeplant auch wechselseitig von der gegenüberliegenden Seite.
Ich werde aber auf die MP40Wqd zurückgreifen und diese später installieren.

Der Aufbau wird recht luftig, sodass ich hier eine gute Strömung haben werden. Ich hoffe es ;)

Das Closed Loop wird im Schacht angesaugt und durch den Schacht zurück über zwei bis drei Auslässe gehen.

thanks janci,
i love it too. I think the acrylic looks good but the reason why I use it is to keep everything in it clean. we all handle with care with the water but all of you know it, it can fail always sometimes a little bit or at the work in the tank or with the skimmer or pumps drips already a little bit besides:facepalm:

Update....
today the tank was delivered..:headwally:

The aquarium was put on the cupboard and I have checked, because it look to small... and really, it was too low! Instead of 60 cm only 55 cm.
So he took it back in the car. Now I must wait for the new one..:hmm3::(not my day.

He was not amused, but I wait 6 years now, to build my new dream.. so everything must be perfekt.

I have send all the sketches to him and there he can see 60cm...:reading: I'm sorry that he need to produce a new one. But... not my mistake.
I think it took 2 weeks more for the new tank -.-

The tank for the RO/DI Water is here and the sump...

here Pictures for you.

I put acrylic on the background of the sump tank , because I don't want to see any cables behind the glas.

I also installed all the electric stuff ... put everything on its place on the Acrily background.
I have bored some holes in it, to hide the "meters of cable" of the RE Controllers.
So i think everything is clean in the future. and easy to use and control.

IMHO its a very bad excuse...I question was , do I have to wait now even more weeks for the delivery?! And he answered YES :headwally: ***....

Now I'm very sick ! today I send the sketches to a dealer here in Berlin, to make me an offer. On monday, I hope so, I will order the tank from another one!

Little update time... no glas at this time :sad2:
But I'm ready with the rockwork. For you a insight of the rocks.
I will be able to fetch probably on the 11th of September the aquarium.
I ordered the tank from erybka. So I Need to drive around 1.000km to another Country to get the tank but :lol: who cares thats the Hobby right :dance:

When Im back, I hope I can finish the pips as far as it goes and then it's Holiday-time for 2 weeks. So I have time to check everything in my head and think about the things I need to fill the tank with water

Furthermore I have tested the lighting... it look very blue but Iphones have big Problems with the LEDs.. When the tank is runing I will use mit Canon EOS.

So sps and tank friends, I hope you like it

cutting

putting in the red pipes to see the space... lot of work to do in the next weeks... pipes with Loclines
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4344/37008614361_dd21d7de27_c.jpg

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4407/37008613941_a99bc03154_c.jpg

here the idea...
from left to right:
CL pressure (32mm/1,25")/CLpressure(32mm/1,25") /CL return(50mm/2")/ dry pipe(50mm/2") for cables (ATIhybrid and flow pumps)/safety pipe(50mm/2")/ return (63mm/2,5")/return pump (32mm/1,25")

the return pump and the Closed Loop will flow over the loclines...

CL (locline) / CL (locline) / return pump (locline)

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4427/37008614491_d0319d8e86_c.jpg

and a first fts with glas... the effect of the rockwork is better with glas

hey guys little update from this weekend...
I start the plumbing... so far so good, I order more stuff, so I can finish everything next week.

here is a picture of the closed-loop. ( i change the grey one next week)
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4363/37406188231_9f7d988dc5_c.jpg

and return pump. I change the grey pipe next week.
The return pump will be used for the zeo filter and my jet stream 1 ca reactor. (Here I need to add some more stuff next week) The zeo filter doesn't work over the own pump. All over the return pump. I will post some detail pics when it is finished.
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4363/23553436238_0c4358d161_c.jpg

Here is a overview of the pipes.
from left to right:
return Close loop 1 and 2 (32mm)_dry pipe for cable work(50mm)_Closed-Loop(50mm)_safety pipe (50mm)_return (63mm)_ return pump (32mm)
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4350/23553435948_6e9eef0158_c.jpg

I have paid attention to make all curves and other stuff bigger one number because I don't want lost flow. So the RD3s can run on maximum power!
no 90° corner only curves. They don't stop the flow rate! For example

Red Dragon 3 return 30mm, pipes 30mm curves and other stuff 40mm with reductions.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4363/23553436238_0c4358d161_c.jpg

and here a prototype of a special creation thing for the loc lines. A fixture for the loc lines...more flow back in the filtration area
https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4378/23553436058_9a51335747_c.jpg

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4387/37406188451_6ef2f41f8a_c.jpg


I have to add something here and there and test it... but I think it will work good.

Georg Fischer equipment to regulate the flow for the Zeovit Filter and the little one maybe for the Jet Stream 1 (will see) I love the big one for my zeo filter. I used it in my old tank and I was very happy about it

Do you think about to use epoxy putty to fix the scape instead the "hellermanns" ?
