keep going with the updates!!!!!!

The story begins here. In these two overflows (see the picture) the water starts its way to the sump.


The water falls by an hydraulic system


Passing, by gravity, under these grids in the soil


Until reach the first sump




This picture is from the first sump. Notice that all of feeding pumps from frags reef, uv, ozone, siporax and chiller are located in this compartment




Skimmers running

Keep going!!!!!


General picture 2 of fish room



Return pump from the second sump



Returning underneath the floor to the display



Well, although I like leds lighting the initial choice of keeping the reef, which is facing to SPSs, with AI Vegas did not show good results. So, after a lot of tests following strict orientations from AI company, I opted for a new lighting system based on T5 lamps. Soon, post more updates on!!!!!!!!

Hugs to all !!!!!!

Daniel

Doctor Daniel Prado, what excellence and what brilliant planning. This is my first post on the forum. I'm a reefer and professional footballer all the way in South Africa. I had to comment on your project as this is a real inspiration to me. I am currently building a new home with a large aquarium as my main feature in my home. Your build has showed me a lot of things I can learn and implement in my build. Thanks for this thread.
