Default New Munich Reef

Hello,

So here is a preview on my new system

Main tank:
Size: 120x80x50 cm
Optiwhite Glass on Front- and Sidewalls
External Overflow Box on the left side glass
Aluminium Profile Construction with white glass covers
Light:
12x54W T5

Frag tank:
Size: 65x30x20 cm
Light:
4x24W T5


The reef structure was made with 100% live rock.
This time I tried to create a more flat rock structure.

Technical Equipment:
Skimmer: Korallenzucht Revolution S
Ca-Reactor: Korallenzucht S
Zeovit Filter: Korallenzucht S
Return Pump: Royal Exclusiv Speedy
All these components were used for a long time…

In this tank I decided to add a Rollermat Filter from the start of the tank.
The Filter is mounted on the return from the display tank, so no additional pump is required.
I am curious how long one roll of paper will last and if it has a good effect on the corals.
For now I can say the water is still very clear…
In my last tanks I always had a lot of mulm and detritus building up after time.
Now I hope the automated mechanic filtration helps preventing this.
We will see…

So, on 08.04.2017 I began filling the tank with water and added the Zeovit filter.
The Frag tank and the Zeovit Filter also are fed with the return pump, so no extra pumps needed.
After the tank was full, I added Salt…





Some days later I made the rock structure and put in some sand.
Then I started with the cycling like described in the Zeovit-Guide.
During this cycling I had the two tanks running parallel in our living room…




I also began transferring some frags to the frag tank after some days.




On 01.05.2017 I moved over all corals and fish to their new home



I had to cut down many corals…
Also the coloration of the SPS was in a very bad state after moving them out of the old tank!




At this state all corals were just thrown in.
It was very much work in these days!

The next days I will check basic water parameters and install the last technical components.
I also will add a little bit more sand.
Also some cut down corals are put on (ceramic free!) frag plugs and then go in the frag tank.
Then I put the SPS one after another in a good place and fix them on the rock work.
So many little more things to correct these days…

Sorry for the bad picture quality - I took these pictures with my phone...


I will again maintain this tank with the Zeovit program.
Lets see how it will look in some months…

Hi,

Thanks everybody!

At the moment the system runs stable.
Slowly the amount of KH is rising, so this is a good sign, that the growth of the corals begins.
I am dosing the basics more or less in the recommended amounts.
Additionally I began with Xtra, FWS and BB but in lower quantities.
I have some areas, where I have a little bit of brown patches.
But not massive, and it gets less from week to week.

Overall I am satisfied how the system has gone through the first weeks!

But it will for sure take some months, until everything is really stable and in good coloration again...

regards
George

Hi,

Sorry that I did not update this thread!
At the moment everything is a little turbulent...

The tank runs pretty good until now.
Regrettably I lost some of the SPS which came from the old tank over the last months.
I guess they had too much problems before moving them over.
But I think this is not a negative sign, as corals with defects sometimes take very long to recover or they just do not make it...
Those SPS that were put directly to this tank are doing good so far.

What I observed until now, is that K+ consumption is higher than expected.
Compared to the amounts of KH and Ca that are consumed, the amount of K+ seems to be high.
I dose the same amounts of K-Balance and K-strong as in my old 800l tank.
Til now I did not find out why this is like this...

I hope I will find time to make some decent pictures in the next weeks...

regards
George

Can you please show a picture of how you managed to put everything in your sump? Skimmer, rollermat, zeo reactor, return, anything else?

Hi mefisto,

It was really not easy to squeeze everything in this sump...
For the planning, I cut out every piece of equipment from paper in 1:1 size.
Then I used some tape to make a 1:1 bottom plate on the eating table.
With this I could slide around the equipment on the table to find the minimum sump size that is needed.
I wanted to get the frag tank as big as possible.
So the sump had to be at the minimum size possible.

Looked funny

I will make some pictures from this!

regards
George

Hi,

So - finally I made it to take some pictures.
Sorry for the delay - I often came home when only blue lights were on...

Here are some quick pictures with my small Digicam of the whole thing.
I hope they give you an idea about the rock structure:





This is the frag tank which is on the right side of the tank and can be accessed through its own door:


This is the front view on the technical department:




And some pictures from above:


I hope this helps to see how tight everything is inside the sump...
From the Return Pump, I have a bypass to the ZeoVit Reactor and one to the frag tank.
The water that comes back from the tank goes through the Rollermat.
The Calcium reactor is fed by a IKS Vario blue again...

And here some pictures from the corals:











Today my new potassium test kit will arrive and a new reference solution.
I hope then I will find the reason for my K+ problem...

Beside from that:
As you can see, most SPS are in good condition.
Some of the older Acros have defects and not all of them will make it...
But when you only have "some" SPS that do not color up or grow, while the most others do - the water is not too bad
So we will see what the K+ test says, but I will not change too much I think...

Thanks for watching!


kind regards
George

Hi Dennis,

Thank you!

I can post details of the frags - but not at the moment...

Actually I have a lot of red flatworms in the frag tank!
In the main display tank I do not see them - obviously they get eaten?
I dose Flatworm Stop now daily in the frag tank since some weeks.
But until now, it does not seem to have an effect.
Obviously I can not place a wrasse in the frag tank.
I tried with a lysmata kuekenthali but this was more like a accident, because the shrimp was trapped in the overflow of the main tank.
So I just dropped it in the frag tank as a test after catching it out of the overflow.
Just a experiment...

If anybody has ideas - you are welcome...


regards
George
