So its only been about 1.5 years since ive updated this thread. Lots has changed since then.

Basically the biggest change is that I built a fish room right oustide. Its basically a small shed that is 4x12 in size.

Here are some pics:

Outside



Inside



Skimmer area- No more overflowing skimmer because the water level never goes under/over 8". rock solid because of holes drilled at 8"


I kept the BRS reactors:


New Genisis system auto top off with the ability to add auto water change
[IMG][/IMG]



This is the return area. I just cut up a bin and put some plastic mesh around it, the thick plastic filler material people use to seperate sump chambers and then some filter cloth ontop. Seems to work well. No bubbles make it to the DT


Return into the 150g rubbermiad water trough. On the far left you can see the returns from the 100g thats just above it, on the right its the returns from the skimmer area and the DT


This is the ATS (Algae turf scrubber) thats above the 150g inside a rubbermaid 100g tank. 72 hours in with LED system and its already dark brown on the screen.


Farther back look at the 100g. Its got a test fixture thats just placed inside a container to protect it. I had this up before the ATS because there are a couple clowns in the tank that need some light


Farther back look at the whole system. You can see how the 100g is hovering over the 150g. One leg is held with a 4" PVC pipe that goes right into the 150g! There is also extensions (on the right) from the return that can be turned on/off to allow for me to add the water change system or a frag tank really easily.


And of course the new dosing system


So far im super happy with it all. There is almost no noise the living room that this system is in. There is no smell from the sump/skimmer. There is no heat from all the pumps or MH (just switched to LED).

Here is some full tank shots and the LED system over the DT










As you can see the aquascape has dramatically changed. Ive moved so much rock into the 150g.

This is what it looked like before:




Big change eh?
