I collected the tank last week after 2 trips. First time the tank didn't fit in my car. Had to go back with a jeep. Have plumbing setup. Found it somewhat hard to find some pieces such as PVC valves so Ill have to add to my plumbing at a later date. Its setup for now anyway. I purchased a Jebao dc 12000 pump used from another member on here. Great condition. Very powerful. Need a valve to slow it down a bit. Have the tank full of some sand and I'm currently making RO water to fill it. I'm about 3/4 there with water and hope to have it full this evening. I still need to buy some more equipment and some salt at the weekend and let it stabilize for a week or so before I start to move some stuff over. Pictures to follow!

First Day Back

Permanent Linkby ballyvora4 on 21 Dec 2016 15:59

First day back on the forum in about 3 years. I plan on doing a blog of my build of a cirra 300L reef. I will be using parts from my already established aqua nano 40 reef. (Ill upload some pictures soon). I'm collecting the used tank tomorrow from Carlow town and I will document the move. Its currently empty so it should be as easy as putting it in the car. Nothing is every easy tho when moving a fragile glass aquarium! I need to purchace other bits for the aquarium still. it doesn't come with a return pump and i will probably re do the plumbing to suit my own needs. Ill use the lighting on my current tank for a little while until I get a replacement. Im using the stock light from the aqua nano and another fixture (Not sure of the name) at the moment.

Next update tomorrow.
