ProstegmaA I was using instant ocean but I'm switching to Fritz RPM salt. I change 40 gallons of water every two weeks and only feed my fish on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On the off days I feed my corals. I hope that helps. If you have anymore questions just ask away.

scottso241 - 4 years ago
great tank matter of fact my dream tank but for now i have a 55 gallon tank . with it being so big is it hard to do a water change ? am not sure my tank is only all troplical fish but yes i have the same problem also i lost some from time to time what a headack but anyways nice video
Wayne Scott
Wayne Scott - 4 years ago
I use a pump to take out and replace new saltwater. In always clean the tank the day before so all in all maybe 35-45 minutes without interruptions.
scottso241
scottso241 - 4 years ago
but like i said i only have a tropical tank not salt water . am in the philippines now tanks here are very cheap and for my budget am really glad and happy about that

oh man thats a really big job how long does that take ? for me it take me about an hour .

Wayne that is a fantastic aquarium. don't have any saltwater fish but love them. Could you do a video that shows all the fish in their habitat close up? Thanks for sharing.

You can install a button recess in your door like they do on cabinets

No sir I never did. Didn't know what kind of lights to use for that. I was looking at the ones where once you open the door the lights automatically come on.
Dee From Brooklyn

Nice. . Have you put lights underneath? I use the led strips around the bottom of my stand. . That's one heck of a skimmer

tippin turtle - 4 years ago
Wayne... Like the fact your showing off the inner workings of your tank; something I feel doesn't get enough attention and often overlooked by reefers in the hobby. I saw a previous video of yours and it appears you could really dress up your system with some better cable management practices in place. Happy reefing and thanks for sharing.
Wayne Scott
Wayne Scott - 4 years ago
tippin turtle Thank you very much for the comment and compliment. And you are right, my cable management is really really bad. I try to cover all the aspects in reefing and not just the good. Plus I try to show why I did what I did compared to other hobbyists. It's like the saying, "There's more than one way to skin a cat." If you haven't already you should see my story on BRStv on how I got into the hobby.

Wayne Scott very cool system, what made you decide to go with the 360Ns and not the 360WEs?
Reefer Nanoman

+Wayne Scott Yeah, it takes more than just good lighting for good growth and coloration, but I'm glad you sorted things out!

Love them. I almost gave up on them because I wasn't seeing any growth. But once I got my parameters stable then I started to see it.

Rad Perez Thank you sir. Honestly if I had to do it again I would've done the Orphek or the Aqua Illuminations. I was hosting a reef club meeting and I couldn't get those in time. I pretty much was impatient and went with the Kessils. They're doing great on my tank and i get the growth. Again impatient because not fast enough growth.
