Blue.... finished it today and glued most of the plumbing

In my opinion this manifold on its own looks amazing

Just waiting for the last reduction to build the connection to my uv unit

Lights are ordered and the material for the reef is also on its way ;-)

Cheers

Good job Florian.
That blue background is a good choice after all.
Not sure why black always remains my favourite because when I see your tank like that, it sure will be stunning.
Plumbing is spectacular as always. The red pipes help a lot in making the plumbing more worth notable.
Is that 1 central return pipe?

Thanks mate!
Yes the red pipes give it something new, but not so cheap and easy to get here ;-)

Yes my vectra L1 will power the whole return line!
Hope this works but those parts powered by the manifold are not that much flow consuming ;-)

Cheers

Ah Florian, even I order my red pvc pipes at Sewatec and ship it to UAE... so we know about the cost.
But totally worth it.

Love the manifold! That looks awesome Flo Are the MP's in place where you're thinking of having them? That blue is going to look so nice with a coral foreground :P

Your work is always spot on and so professional! How do you like working with the aluminum for the stand?

Thank you!
This stand is perfect, way better than any other material I had. I only recommend to buy the elements cut by a pro. Mine were cut by the company a bought them and I would have never got them that straight myself. And they must be completely level or the build is already doomed ;-)

But I don't know if this will be the final version of the manifold... someone on Instagram pointed out that I may lose pressure the way I build it. So I ordered some short reductions last week hope they arrive soon
Yes the mp's are at the place I think I'll run them. The mp10 is just for a nice little current through the reef

That red and grey look so cool together.

Hahaha but I don't want to end up buying another pump to get all supplied ;-)

But let's wait and see how the other version looks

Cheers

hey flo, deine Winkel in deiner Verrohrung sind richtige Strömungskiller.
Ich würde die alle gegen Bögen austauschen! Reduzierungen musst du sehen wo die eingebaut werden sollen. ich habe auch 3 lange Reduzierungen besorgt für ein Y Stück das 50ist wo 32er Rohr ran soll...Bei der Verrohrung kann man einiges falsch machen was die Leistung einer Pumpe stark beeinträchtigt, auch beim Ablauf sollte man darauf achten.

Hey Dennis thanks for the input

I know the hard corners are not the optimum but due to space problems I can't use them for 40mm diameter

But let's wait and see ;-)

Cheers

So today I got my shipment with my rocks

Those are made by a German company called Atoll Riffdeko

Nothing taken from our reefs for the production of those stones



And this is what I built out of it




I really like the minimalistic look of the scape. I see so many places for corals and so many ways how the fish can swim through it all

What do you guys think of it?

Cheers

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....What do I think?
I think that I just found a scape that pleases me as much as my own.....
Lots of room for the fishes....lots of places to glue sticks....
I wouldn't move a thing....
Well done, man...........well done!

I like it. Love the bays but without water and light it's always challenging for me to evaluate.

Neat shapes. Is that a concrete and sand type artificial rock?

Yes I really need those lights to get a better feel for it, but for now not so bad ^^

I don't know if this is the right word but artificial resin with sand no concrete and ceramic ;-)

Wow. That scape is great. The actual rock is interesting. The shapes that you purchased seem to fit together wonderfully.

Good looking aquascape. I do miss the rock wall you had going with the anthias. Probably the best drop down scape I've seen anywhere.
