just a pair of mandarin's trying to get them into breeding condition's later hopeful a pair of pipefish the yellow strip one's if I can go 100% live food If I fail then it will be mostly for coral propagating I want to have mostly high end zoo's/ric's/yuma

update on progress new 450gph lift pump and all but 40 lb's of LR and 2 nemos's,3 chromis's and 1 small mandarin got rid of alot of fish and rock













it will be a 225G system instead of a 200G
correction on the kenya tree raceway I'll be using it for yuma's,high end zoo's etc too

Since unpluging my mrc life is good my zooplankton,worm's,micro star's,slug's,snail's are reproducing like mad can't wait to finish this system

Tigriopus californicus
AKA TIGERPOD'S for seahorse

100G culture/maybe propagating pond mrc and pump's will be comming out I need to figure out how to get a light rolling boil for flow in the pond
will be planning a way to regularly supply the pond with a realy light tint of green/yellowish phyto both nano and iso packing the tiger's full of high Hufa's epa,dha,pigiment's,protein,carbohydrate




Nitokra lacustris for mandarin's in the culture planning stage as I speak

figured if this goes right I will be able to supply my filterfeeder's/pod's etc
with 2 type's of phyto on a dose to my system keeping it very alive and also harvesting the 2 zooplankton's at different cycle's of their live's to feed the different size coral polyp's along with using them as extra scavenger's for my natural filter

stumbled accross 2 of these at a garage sale wish I knew where to get 2G one's where I can fit my hand inside still not sure what I will use it for

If all goes well in the end not sure how many year's I would love to have pair's of $1000 each seahorse's having babies and raise/crossbreed them for color,shape,size etc

it's a lot of work but seahorse's,pipefish's,mandarin's fell into place when researching coral's and propagating,nutrition,natural filter,natural export,t5 H.O bluer light,light cycle's,light/live food manipulation of coral's autotrophs vs heterotrophs adaptability percentage's,above display macro free refuge loaded with rock rubble for zooplankton system supply ,slow/medium flow, polyp size and proper live food capture/flow rate capture etc etc

side note not sure if possible but I believe there is a chance to cross breed some type's of coral's but probably a pipe dream I know it happens in the wild thou at time's under extreme condition's as a way to survive

It's not all french to me but I am having trouble trying to follow along with the thread. If I have it right, it sounds like what you're trying to do is a great idea with all natural filtration, I'm just a little confused at exactly how it all ties together. A little detailed write up to explain whats happening would be helpful.

Protein skimmer's are great and people can have a wonderful tank with them but for me as a personal decision I decided to go without

IMO I don't won't to offend anyone so this is only my opinion

but would like to try to explain it it might take awhile

ignore the grammer,spelling etc

without a skimmer this give's me the ability to keep in protein's protein's are what I am trying to keep in a protein skimmer does not take out inorganic's it take's out organic's example food

when adding zooplankton,phyto I want to keep this in my tank along with having a refuge/predator free place where they can reproduce the zooplankton themselve's are scavenger's they act as little cleaner's like hermit's along as being food for my system

What I am trying to create is a very live deverse ecosystem very simular to the ocean
since mandarin's in the wild usualy spent their life time in a very small secton of the ocean like the size of a 90G I'm hoping to closely reproduce this natural state

Thanks, for the explanation. That makes things a bit easier to understand. Does the pond get tied into the 225g ECO system or is it a stand alone thing that will be harvested and added?

Stand alone to be harvested to feed different size coral's/animal's and extra that will supply my expensive hobby if thing's go well and I am able to maybe some day put this into action and show that once hard to keep species is now easily kept it might grow interest one day as a alternative to a tank with a skimmer not sure but would like find out

A algae turf scrubber is a alternative to a skimmer/refuge If you want I can describe this?

Actually since the algae turf scrubber was referenced earlier in a few threads here and there, I've actually been doing some reading and research on the topic and have found it to be quite informative and interesting.
It's like I tell people thinking about getting into marine tanks: "read as much as you can on the subject , then read some more and when you think you know it all....get another book"
I figure I'll never finish learning in this hobby.

That is so so true imo this hobby allow's me to learn simple thing's that I've missed when I was younger due to skipping grade school/not going to the right school's/not paying attention but now that I have found something I'm interested in I have a reason to try to upgrade simple thing's
like: computer's,carpentry,design,planning,research,science,biology,nutrition
grammar,punctuation,spelling,closed system and trying to duplicate the ocean by learning from it and simply trying to bring it to a home 5000 mile's away with species in the wild that would of never been put together in nature in a small box

some people say it can't be done etc I've stayed off forum's for my first 5 year's now after in my 7th year I pop up on them and no offense not this site but if your not on the right site with the right categories to post in a person leaves them self open to very personal attacks and threat's for having a different opinion because a person can get attacked on all aspect's of the hobby just because 99% do it one way and I do the other and try to stand up for my belief's I get stomped into the ground looking and feeling like I never learned a thing o yeah my reputation is garbage now wish more people had a open concept of the hobby like you never thought I would
have to watch my back going to a fish store lmao if only what they said when I joined was true

I know exactly what your saying about getting attacked in other sites forums. I'll just leave it at that. Wink

Looks like your off to good start on your phyto grow op. My last set of cultures crashed and I haven't had a chance to pick up a new one yet to get mine going again.

DIY Phytoplankton 1/8 cup per 20G to start and slowly increasing over time to 1 cup IMO is the future of saltwater tank's this over looked product will be my pridiction along with a ATS and zooplanton that will open this hobby up to anyone that is into keeping surtton hard to keep coral and fish that will bring a very natural approach to reefkeeping

nutrition imo is key

everything has been done so I decided to gear my studies toward's bringing this to my tank

we can easily provide enough light and flow but can anyone honestly say they have pushed nutrition to the max?

ALGAE TURF SCRUBBER:

On a 90G DT/25G Sump

T5-HO 192 Watt Acrylic Box Design Above Sump

Approx Screen 22" Width x 13" Height

Flow750 GPH

Dual Fan


The
ATS2010

PHYTO
Copied from santa monica.

Acrylic Box:

23 1/4" to 24" length

3 1/2" to 4" width

16" to 17" height

Light Canopy:

Total 192watts

There will be a canopy on each side of the screen it will be

lit by 4-t5 high output 6500k bulb's.

Light Canopy Demension's:

Approx 23 1/4" length x 10.1/8" x 2 1/4"

The light's are 1" tucked up inside measuring from out side of the canopy frame inner tip of lip to outside of the light tube.

The canopy also has reflector's the canopy is called sunlight supply with a workhorse ballast I believe.

This is the light canopy I will use x2.




Screen:

22 1/2" width x 13 9/16" height x little over 2/8" thickness approx with 4 screen's glued
together.

This is the type of screen I will use x4 the size is discribed above thickness is 3/4 of a 1/16 of a inch?, $2 each @ walmart in the fabric section.



I will use 4 of them glued together and roughed up like crazy on each side using 60 grit sand paper and maybe a steal filer or something.

Pump:

Will be approx 750GPH.

This is the pump.



Pipe:

I'll be using 1/2" pipe from the pump approx 26" height
then a union I think it's called and another 24" length pipe for the box

Return:

This is the type of bulkhead I will use.



I'm thinking of using the common bulkhead's used for pool's probably 2
1 being the main and the other will be just above water level inside box to be on the safe side probably not neccessary.

ATS Positioning:

I plan on positioning the ATS right over my sump in the middle.

This is the new home for my ATS.



Fan's:

Hoping 2 will do mostly black plastic fan's.

I'm curious why you're using a seperate pump to feed the ATS instead of just feeding it directly from the overflow box on your DT? Whats the benefit?
Are the fans for cooling the bulbs?

This is the one I will copy but on a larger scale
the santa monica 120 I got a few thing's to figure out nothing big thou

http://forum.marinedepot.com/Topic89570-4-4.aspx

like thickness of acrylic?
painting it?
size of fan's?

Insump work's great just wanted to make something nice and fine tune it one day for look's so everything is hidden and that I can get the light real close to the screen

Fan's are for cooling the ballast's and bulb's because they will be up against the Acrylic not 100% but feel ballast's work best at cooler temp
along with if the pump stop's pushing water it doesn't fry the algae to much
not 100% on that neither hoping the box will stop most of the heat in that situation I heard that if that happen the algae create's a crust stoping the rest from frying

I want to go on the safe side and use 2 double the size of a hardball size fan's one on the front ballast and one on the back ballast one pushing the air to the left and the other one to the right right on the ballast/between the acrylic and ballast and abit and behind it

I wanted high power ATS with no P.S or macro only solely the ATS
only because I normally run tank's all natural with flow,rock,pod's,natural filter

this will allow me to dose plenty more then I even thought was humanly possible due to most of my food being alive

IMO It's a good to start to understanding a bit about nutrition,natural export etc

IMO I found at times some types of my sps lost colour when I had little nutrition
or too bright of light's also through the years I did starve quite a few lps and filter feeders

No problem people can alway's add a ATS scrubber with less flow/light to compliment their Skimmer and refuge as well

but if you go too big then macro won't grow along with the skimmer not being able to work I believe or atleast it will be watery and light yellow the skimmate instead of thick and dark coloured
