Hello NJ Reefers! My name is Paul and I'd like to share my build with you. I'm from Vernon, NJ and we decided to get moving on this project a few months after we moved into our first home. The build officially started in August of 2016 and I've been lazy about posting this here. I won't go through every detail and instead provide pictures and details as to where I stand as of today. So, here's what I'm working with: Tank(s) 125 Gallon AGA Display Tank 40 Breeder Sump 40 Breeder Quarantine Tank 20 Gallon Refugium Water mixing station (2) 35 Gallon storage containers Equipment Display Tank (125 Gallon) Lighting - (2) Reef Breeder Photon V2 Reef Synergy Shadow Overflow Neptune Systems Apex 2016 WXM (to control MP40s) PM2 (additional temp reading along with ability to temp correct salinity) (2) VorTech MP40 Filtration Sump (40b) Mechanical Filtration/Nutrient Export via (6) 100/200 micron filter socks replaced every 3-4 days Skimmer - Reef Octopus Regal 250INT Heaters - (1) Finnex 300w and (1) Finnex 500w titanium heaters (1) Jebao DP4 Dosing Pump (1) Jebao DCT 8000 Pump (Reactor Manifold) (1) Emperor Aquatics 40w UV Sterilizer (1) PhosBan reactor (running GFO) (1) BRS media reactor (running BRS rox carbon) (2) Neptune MPR Probe Holders (3) Neptune PMUPs (2) PMUPs used for daily Automatic Water Changes (AWC) of 8gpd (1) PMUP used for Automatic Top Off (ATO) Return Pump - Iwaki RLT75 Refugium (20g) LED Growlight Marine Pure 8x8x4 block Chaeto for nutrient export (1) Hydor Koralia 425 Quarantine (40b) Marineland 350 HOB Heater - (1) Finnex 300w titanium heater Water Changes RO/DI BRS 150GPD RO/DI unit (1) Sediment Filter, (2) Carbon Blocks, 150GPD RO memberanes, (2) DI resin filters Water Mixing Station (2) 35 Gallon water storage containers (1 for RODI/ATO storage and 1 for saltwater mixing/AWC) (2) Jebao PP4 powerheads for mixing saltwater (1) Little Giant 2MDQX for water mixing and transfer Test Kits Hanna Phosphate ULR checker Hanna Alkalinity checker Hanna Calcium checker Red Sea Reef Foundation Test Kit Milwaukee Digital Refractometer Okay, that should cover the equipment. Now, onto the brief catching up and a ton of pics. I'll try to point out where I'm planning future changes and what I wish I had done differently. The Tank Sump before baffles Sump with baffles installed. In retrospect, I wish I had oriented the drain section and socks differently. Running lengthwise would have allowed for a cleaner set up. You will see what I mean later. I used a router to cut the holes for 4" socks along with a lip for the socks to sit flush against the holder. The display tank was gifted to me, as you can see the seams needed some love. Used momentiv RVT or RTV, I don't recall but went with black Sump was drilled for two 1" bulkheads. One is the external return pump (Iwaki RLT75) and the other is for the internal manifold pump (DCT 8000) ...and the leak test with the help of the best helper on the planet. That's it for now! Up next, placement and the construction!
