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]
