120 gal Reef savvy rimless tank build. ***PICTURES***

Postby bubblewood on Fri May 02, 2014 11:15 am

So I have purchased a new rimless (starphire glass) Reef savvy tank. It's a incredible tank with lots of new goodies! ATI (8) bulb light fixture, (2) MP-40's, Tunze 3155 Osmolator, Reef Savvy acrylic sump, ghost over flow.... Just to name a few items.
So many options for design, layout, and what's going inside!
Give me your ideas if this was in your home.
:-)

Pictures to come!

These hypothetical situations are beyond my powers of imagination. Set it up at my house and then I'll get some great ideas! :D

Seriously, though, how about a gorgonian tank? Between Aquascapers and ReefGen, there are quite a few captive grown species available. Some shrimpfish might be cool in there, too.

Ok here they are....DRUM ROLL..... B-)

This tank will be a SPS tank with lots of swimming room for the new home owners. Going the dry rock on this one. I have 3 large pieces that will set the stage for explosion of color. :-) Donations gladly accepted.
Going T5 for lighting with the ATI 8 bulb setup. Very large sump will be the heart of the tank. (2) MP-40's will give all the motion for the corals. Ok done with the talk...Here comes the pictures. :-bd

Love this overflow box....The slot on the bottom is the return. No lines or hoses or wires going in this tank will be seen..

Let me know what you think. I will be interfacing this into my current Apex setup. Details for that coming soon. I will be tying into my calcium reactor also.

Here's a few Savvy Sunday pics.... Growth and color are getting better and better every week. Pretty excited about picking up my new Black tang this week! Pics for sure will be coming on this new addition. In the meantime here's a few from today off the IPhone. :-)

:shock: :shock:

My god Joe..... That is so beautiful!!! I cannot wait to see your tank (hopefully)-tomorrow! Do you have any other photos to show the different stages of progression? I would love to see the different stages of growth and everything. Also, how do you like your sump so far? Any issues/hiccups or anything with it and the skimmers intake for what you are striving for? What an SPS lovers dream tank..!!!

Well done Joe, extremely well done. =D> =D>
