    New Set up and the old one

    Hi,I'm Setting up a new system a 65g Tank with sump and upflow scrubber Santa monica hog 3
    My last system was a 120g tank with Deep Sand bed,seagras,razorfish and porites corals,it was a very simple system with skimmer,sump and kalkwasser dosing.
    My new setup will have a shallow sandbed and the light is more in the blue spectrum.the Display light is 4x54w t5 and 3x75w led and the seagrass tank had a lumenbright reflector with 600w hqi/MH bulb sunmaster cooldeluxe,this bulb had a very nice light too my eye,about 8000kelvin.That tank was acrylic my new one is with Low iron glas.
    we got a new house and it was not possible moving the old system with me.
    Greetings from Germany...
    P.s I will try Post some pictures from the new setup and the old seagras tank

    Welcome from Germany,

    The new one will have seagrass?

    Also, the HOG3 is attached on the front of the sump?

    That tank had a peristaltic "enteral" medical pump that fed a few milliliters of blended food each hour. The hard part is keeping the food cold so it does not spoil. I used a wine cooler, but a bigger solution is a mini refrigerator with the food inside, and the tubing running through it. You can find examples of this by googling "NPS refrigerator feeding" or "non-photo coral liquid food refrigerator".

    Post what you build here
