60g Cube Build

Postby Tonis56 on Thu Sep 19, 2013 2:44 pm

After many years of owning a large tank (from a 120-180 gallon). I have decided to downsize. Last weekend I ordered a Marineland Rimless 60 gallon cube and stand.

I opted for the non reef ready model as there seem to be quite a few complaints on the overflow.

I will be building a sump at some point. I am undecided if I am going to build one from scratch with acrylic or just modify a 20g long tank.

Everything is on order as of last night and I will be posting pictures as things come in. Additionally I will be selling everything for my 180g gallon in the coming weeks.

My plans for equipment:

Rapid Led Dimmable LED fixture with 80 degree optics http://www.rapidled.com/dimmable-onyx-by-rapid-led/

Apex lite controller http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/apex-lite-controller-neptune-systems.html
with VDM module for LED control http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/led-pumps-control-module-vdm-neptune-systems.html,
breakout box for ato setup http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/neptune-systems-i-o-breakout-box.html

Glass-Holes.com 700 gph overflow kit http://glass-holes.com/700-gph-Overflow-Box-Complete-Kit-gh700kit.htm Had the 1500 gph one on my 120 and it was excellent.
