So, [URL="http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/store/"]BRS[/URL] ought to be happy chappies, at my expense [grin] - the orders have started to come in. These are two of the four orders I've placed to these guys over the last month or so...

Things of note in the left-hand (or upper, depending on how wide your browser is set to) photo:[list][*]3x 100' roll of water tubing(red, blue, black). Usage to be detailed in a post or two (or three, who's counting ).[*]A 6-stage RO/DI unit - San Jose uses chloramines as well as chlorine in the water (which by the way I deeply suspect had a part to play in my previous tank's fortunes), so this is their we-handle-chloramines version.[*]The reeflo dart gold pump I'll be using as a return pump.[*]Lots of schedule-80 plumbing. Yeah, I know, schedule-40 has slightly-better flow for our purposes, but grey/orange looks way cooler than white/red, I've more flow than I know what to do with, and I didn't fancy spray-painting afterwards [/list]
Things of note in the right-hand / lower photo:[list][*]The UV steriliser - a 50W high-output model. Ought to kill protozoa like ich at 260gph.[*]Lots more schedule-80 plumbing. Can you ever get enough schedule-80 plumbing ? [*]The power-bars that will form the basis of the manual-control part of the electrical cabinet.[*]The white box with a pen on it is (the sun killed the label) is a LiterMeter-3 and extra pump. I'm going to be using this for water change and ATO.[*]The 4 lok-line (assembled) fittings that will form the return from the sump[*]Everything is sitting on the big box full of piping - 1", 1.5", and 2" pipe for the various parts of the plumbing.[/list]
