    DIYReefer's after the build thread.

    I thought I would start a "after the build" thread started.
    I did most of the build in 2014 but didn't get it wet till the last may.
    I'm still digging around for old pictures of the build.
    Here are a couple of today's pics.





    RO/DI and saltwater mixing station.

    Water change/settling tank

    Sump is a work in progress and I plan on building one over the winter, utilizing a used 160 gallon acrylic aquarium.
    I'm using a 100 gallon rubber maid at the moment. Much electrical re-routing and cleaning up needs to be done.

    I'll have many hours into the system this winter fine tuning all the details.

    When I have a moment I'll list out all the equipment I'm using to keep 450 gallons flowing and operating.

    Cheers

    The growth and color on this reef is incredible! Seen it in person several times, hard to believe! Can't argue with 400W MH.

    Thanks guys! I really put some thought into the system and its working out really well.
    I plan on contributing much more to the thread. It's been a hectic couple of months and I've had no time to work on it.

    I like your setup. Something like that is kind of my end-game goal.
