SnowAddicts predictable Upgrade
#1
So I’m sure there was a sweep amongst those who know me to do with how long it would be till I upgraded.
So the one who had 10 months step forward.

A little about my current set up. I currently run a RedSea Max Nano all in one feet tank.
It is a pretty simple set up with a rear built in sump.
[Image: 9a590b20b9645dde8e200daaef8297d6.jpg]

So I’ve been recently been very busy in a new business venture installing custom built Aquariums and felt it was only right I treated myself.
So I’ve placed an order with a company I work with for:
24”(L) x 30”(H) x 24”(W) Marine Aquarium.
Black Silicone
Double Black Base
Opti-White Front, Left and Right Panes
External Weir
Black Background
Sump Tank (No ATU) with Black Back, Left & Right
Steel Framed Cabinet and Matching Open Pelmet in High Gloss Black

The total volume of the system will be around 300L, so a good manageable volume.
Lighting I picked up the other day, Ecotech Radion RX30 G3, they are seriously bright!

Return flow will be handled by an Ecotech Vectra M1, this will feed a manifold from which a uv steriliser and media reactor.
Tank flow will be dealt with by 2 Ecotech MP10wQD wavemakers, one of which I already have.
All the Ecotech equipment is managed by a Reeflink, so it’s all accessible online or through a app to set schedules.

Skimmer was picked up this weekend just gone, Deltec 600ix.
[Image: 164ed7334644a710f53fa9bf24856320.jpg]
Still in the box so the boss doesn’t realise that it probably cost more than the £20 everything in this hobby costs

That’s it for now, tank arrives in 4/5 weeks..... best let the better half know.... if I’m not seen online for a couple of days tell the police to look under the patio.

Cheers
Joe

10 months?? What took you so long?

Sounds a brill bit of kit. Wish I had the balls as well as cash to brave Marine.

Good luck with it. Gonna enjoy watching this come together.

Took me that long to grow my balls big enough to approach the Mrs with the proposal

She’s an/my accountant..... I have a feeling she might soon realise that ‘fish stuff’ costs more than £20?!

Right I've decided. I'm a strong independent man who don't need no woman to stop me getting tanks! I will be staying alone with my 10000 tanks at home and NOONE will stop me!

Do it, but promise me you’ll leave the house now and again to socialise with humans...
