Mr. Ugly,
Is that a subtle Calfo style over flow on your "under sized" 40gal? If so, how did you like it, and were the drains sizeable enough to give you the flow you needed? How was the sound (gurgling, spitting, cursing,..)?

Seriously sweet. I remember a guy in Michigan had a basement that looked like that back in 1976. I showed your pix to my wife and warned her that she's lucky we don't have a basement, otherwise it would look like that. We do have a garage, though...

Nice setups everyone

Ed,

Yep, you got it

I used a single piece of glass and glued it in at an angle so as to minimize lost space.

I really liked that overflow. The water sheeted over the edge quietly, and the surface was really clean.

I ran two 1 inch external Durso drains which are supposed to be good for 600gph each. The return pump was a Mag 5 so the tank to sump turnover was low and the drains were really quiet. Everybody that saw the tank commented about how quiet it was.

I outgrew the 40 and replaced it with a 24x48x16. That one has a center external overflow which is ok. I do like the Calfo way better.

Here's a link to the current setup.

http://www.bareefers.org/discussion/...p?topic=2051.0

I'll be doing another one probably the same size, but with a Calfo instead of a center overflow.

Actually "PENDUCTOR"

I believe its just a brand of eductor made by Penguin.

Google both words... lots of hits...

here's my slightly modest ghetto rigged frag tank.

display lights:
150 watt 10K MH
4x24 watt t5 10K

Refugium light:
36 watt pc.

2100 l/h return pump.

flow:
2 turbelle 2002 2400 L/H
2 turbelle stream 7240 6000 L/H

in sump:
turboflotor
old calcium reactor transformed in refugium
canisterfilter with phosban and carbo.

Mostly sps corals, some star-polyp,kenia-xenia plague.

I like the way it's saying: " get's yourself a new tank cause i can't hold it much longer"

THis is an EASY set up and doesn't take too much time to set up. In the big picture it is relatively cheap.

3 rubbermaid containers, PVC, 3 bulkheads, cinderblock and a pump.

Unfortunaltey, I sold all of it to a guy before the move, b/c I would have had no place to put it I will be placing a propagation tank off of my exhisting system.


Well here is an update of what I have now. The tank is a triggersystems custom. I have egg crate positioned 10 inches below the water line. Flow is provided by two maxijet mods, while lighting is on a linear light rail with a 175 W aquamedic fixture with a 14K phoenix bulb. The system is plummed into my 400 gallon.

my zoa frag setup 65 gal aga w/ 175 w and 250w 14k mh. octopus nw150, mag 7 return and a couple small pumps in the tank for circulation. It is kept outside on my patio and is s95% zoas







i use no eggcrate because the zoas encrust onto rock and are easier to frag this way. keep a sixline and a small bird wrasse in this tank to keep pods and other possible pests in check.

I have noticed that there are a lot of custom aquariums in this thread. I am looking for 2 to 3 nice 30 - 40 gallon aquariums but with a max hieght of about 8" - 12". Where can i find them online. I am in the Philadelphia area and there are not many lfs's that deal with prop tanks. Any info would be a huge help. Thanks.
