Had this tank for a bit now, but recently tore it down and drilled it for a closed loop system. Here are the revamped specs:

Tank:
36"x12"x8" custom tank

Water movement:
Custom Sea Life T4 pump
Tunze NanoStream 6045

Lighting:
36" SLS Tek Light 4x39W bulb fixture (2 Giesemann AquaBlue, 1 Giesemann Actinic+, 1 Giesemann Midday)

Skimmer:
Reef Octopus DDNW-250 Dual Recirculation needlewheel skimmer

Heater:
None - I figure that since the T3 is such a hot running pump to begin with, I most likely won't need a heater

Chiller:
Pacific Coast Imports 1/10hp

Topoff:
Tsunami Auto Topoff w/ Hagen 401 powerhead

Livestock:
2-False Perc.

Methodology:
For this tank I am using the BB method once again. My previous tank was also a BB and I enjoyed that look quite a bit, so I've decided to do it again. Plus I can really crank up the flow if I need to and not worry about sand going everywhere.

The tank has been running for approximately 15hrs now in its current state, and I've already encountered a problem with heat! :redface: :cry: Without a heater, the pump alone has brought my water temperature up to 90*F!! :eek:

I'll need to find a solution to cool it down. Hopefully the extra 9 gallons or so of water that my skimmer holds will bring the temperature down some as well.
