    Default Heidi's 150g cube

    DSCF2094 - Heidi's 150g cube


    So here we go again people! It's been just about 5 months and I just gotta upgrade. There's no more room for more SPS in the hex. There is not more room for fish. I want more sps, and more fish . . . so upgrade it's time! I got a great deal on a used MareineLand cube, 36x36x27, custom built oak stand, all the plumbing for the overflow and return, sump, return pump,and 10 t5 lighting set up that I will need to keep reading about to figure out. What else I have bought: Med/Lg grain mix of sand and crushed coral dry. (don't worry its not those big chunks that are bad) Salt, 2 300w heaters, 40 more pounds of live rock (will keep and add 18 pounds from my hex) Super Reef Octopus 3000. Some pictures from today:

    Did you make sure you did the math on it correct this time? Hate for you to have to change the title half way through the thread, lol. Should be a great tank, and I am sure it will be greatly documented.

    It is over the crawl space on the main level. We did the math and we have an older house so it is very well build. We had to shim it cause w/o any water it was a bit unleveled. Im not a worrier that's the husbands job lol so he did the math to make sure it would be safe.

    nice grab on the cube, heidi. If it were for sale in October, I would have it in my living room.

    Looking forward to what you do with it.
