Pretty much free access otherwise I would not be able do maintenance behind the back side of the tank. I am just as passionate about the equipment side of things too, and will have free and easy access to the equipment side of things as well.

Thanks.
I have a build thread called the house reef upgrade where I showed the build. Lost most of the pics due to a bad memory card though.

Great looking set up. The tank is sweet and so is the sump. Geo does awesome work, he built my 240 gallon tank. Is he building anything else for you?
I was just talking to a local member about your tank, I hadn't seen any update on it on our site. Cora.
Glad to see its still coming along!

Corey

Purchased 10 years of replacement parts and modified pumps for the skimmer and calcium reactor in advance too. While Reef Dynamics is no longer in business, my plan is to keep this heavy duty equipment in operation for decades to come.

Lookin good Tim..........everything is top notch

That skimmer is a beast, very similar to the old style Deltecs. which was by far the best skimmer I ever owned.

Thanks, Ed! Glad to have you along for my build too. I have had great success with Reef Dynamics/Euroreef skimmers in the past and I am still running my Euroreef RC 500 skimmer now on my grow out system...It's over 10 years old now and still runs like a champ.

The new skimmer is rated for around +/- 1,000 gallons with a heavy bio-load (ie, lots of SPS & reef fish).

That's a seriously huge skimmer!! Odd though that it doesn't employ fewer, larger pumps.
