Building a coral shop / aquaculture facility

Recommended Posts

 

Im so happy to be part of this build

 

Today i helped with plumbing one of the coral raceways 400+ gallons with three “tubs” and one xxl custom glass sump

Plumbing is two 1” drains and a 3/4” return each they are connected through the sump so any of the “tubs” can be closed off and used separately without the sump

Pump is just for cycling and will be upgraded to a proper sized pump once it’s all running

The cycle might start in a bin or in these tubs it will consist of Dr Tims and bio blocks (not sure what type)

Oversized skimmer (not sure yet what type)

Led and t5 lighting

Some type of wave maker for flow

Some type of rack to hold frags and colonies

They will continue selling at shows and start selling online

 

I can’t wait until all the eye candy shows up

 

i am in no way Affiliated i am friends with most of the reefing community so saying they are friends of mine isn’t saying much

 

Once they are up and running they will become vendors here (so no names until then)

 

They are already actively selling at shows but they are extending in to another location to expand online

 

So far It is 4 coral systems they are known for selling high end name brand coral with some stunning and rare sps so can’t wait until these tanks are full

 

Ill try to update with pictures of the build as i go to visit

That's nice. They look good. I have been dreaming of a new build and was thinking of a glass sump instead of acrylic. I like the way they turned out. 


I personally rather glass i feel it’s cleaner and doesn’t scratch and discolor as easy as acrylic

The down side is it’s heavy and not as customizable with little cutouts etc
