    Default The Start of My New Reef

    My new system is not complete yet,
    So I guess this will be my build thread.
    It has been a slooooow process.

    The Main tank is a 50 breeder.
    It has a recirculating system with 7 Bulk Heads.
    The Pump is a ATB flowmaster 1500

    Nice start! So, is that rack just two pieces? Is it man-made?

    That is a great ricordia collection! Will that be in this tank as well? How do you plan to secure them with all that flow?

    There is just two structures/pieces containing several smaller pieces that have been aqua-mended together.
    Is it man-made?
    It is all dried live rock & Aqua-mend

    That is a great ricordia collection! Will that be in this tank as well?
    Hopefully, there will be enough room for all of them.
    I have 82 different color morphs.
    How do you plan to secure them with all that flow?
    They will be secured with super glue or Aqua-mend.
    Ricordea Florida can handle higher flow if attached to rock.
    It sounds like a lot of flow.
    But after all of the piping and after it has to move around all of the rock, it is more of a medium flow from every direction.
    It is like having a Wave Maker without having to lower the water level in your tank.
    And it is totally adjustable via Ball Valves.

    ReeferRob Worte:

    Your guess is as good as mine.
    I will get a close up for the experts to examine.

    Please tell me your putting in sand?!
    There will be substrate on the bottom.
    Still debating on what time.

    What is the fish list going to be?

    Is the tank going to be stocked with strictly Florida Ricordea or Haitian Ricordea or will you include some Yumas?
