Wishy washed 120

Recommended Posts

Ok. So I finally decided on getting a 120. Not only have I decided. I actually bought one. Thanks @Mussin! What a great looking tank. Also got a sump. It’s a Skimz up36. It has a crack on one side. So the ato reservoir leaks. Not the end of the world as the rest is in great shape (brand new in box). And will make a nice sump for the 120. I have the build planned down to the fish. No corals planned at this time. But will most definitely be coming later.  This will be a slow build. And will be made up of premium equipment. Most I hope to find used. Here are some pics. 

Borrowed this pic from @Mussin’s for sale post. 943CC7DA-AEF7-40EF-88F2-39C133AA3F5F.jpeg

 

Here is the crack. Not sure if it can be repaired. But plenty of room under the tank to add an ato holding tank if needed.

Sump has been leak tested and passed.

stand will be refinished and a canopy added to the tank.

Also scored this from an old reefer @sadow. It will hold 65g of mixed saltwater.

Updates to come in time. As stated, it will be a slow build. I have to remodel the living room before I start this build.

Is that ato chamber acrylic?  If so you may be able to sandwich the crack from each side or from the outside basically double layering it or triple layering.  A good amount of weld on 4 and some clamping. But that’s if your comfortable trying such thing.

It is acrylic. Not sure it’s worth all the work. I’d like to have a bigger ato container anyways. But I’ll give it some thought. Thank you.

Ordered a heater and some rock to start playing with. I would like to stay under 80lbs of Rock. Even less is I can get away with it. And I am going to be running 2 Eheim Jager heaters.  But got one to start. Just going to order stuff from time to time until I acquire it all. Will be December before tank gets wet.

Came across a deal in lights. $150 each on brand new OveanRevice T247. Save $100. 

Ooh nice! I've been thinking about selling my Noopsyches and have heard great things about those lights.

Got the same thing for my build. Wish I would have checked chewy first based on their price 

I happened across them when googling. Lol I thought all they had was dog and cat stuff.

Same here. They have some pretty good deals. Dr. Tim’s one and only is super cheap for the small bottles $3 instead of $19
