its mind blowing man! I'm a perfectionist in professional making of glass aquariums means a box. I'm new to marine....well a year. how you drop down the nitrates that's question no.1
I'm making a 6 foot tank. should I go for 15"depth with a 3.5 sump at the back or whole 20" depth with small triangle water drains on right and left? please advise

How many heaters do you use? Would one,  300W heater suffice?

FUC*ING B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!!!!!! looks just as if you took a chunk of the sea and brought home with you. Everything looks HAPPY and HEALTHY. Forget what the so called "expert" aquarist say about your aquarium. you should do an Updated video of this

10GalReef - 8 years ago
Sweet tank! 95% water change sounds like it makes sense. Why would it kill off coral and fish if done right? The waters around wild reefs are constantly being replenished and come on, look at his tank! He/she is on to something.

hey, i don't see how you can do 95% watercanges on that reef. Seems like it would kill your fish, coral, and bio bacteria...if you could make a video on this that would be awesome! gracias hombre!
microiguana - 8 years ago
dude 95%????? what water are u usin bro?? save straight ocean water, i see no way that would work... though your tank does look frikkin stunning. how bout a vid of the process? i wanna see if i can try to replicate its results on mine.. but i probably won't try.

If he is getting his water from the ocean, I could see the ninety five percent changes working... Sure he would be removing all the beneficial bacteria, but unlike RO water, the water from the ocean would be replacing that bacteria... It could, however introduce diseases, but it seams to be working well for him. I'm envious my tank is tiny by comparison
Josh - 8 years ago
how are you able to take out 95% of the water with out any of the coral being out of water? your sump must be HUGE!!!!! like over 1000 gallons

I see you have a Moorish Idol. just curious to see how long it's lived for and what you feed it. I know they can be very hard to keep in captivity, mostpeople say to leave them in the ocean. You have a very large tank and it looks very happy and healthy. So it must be eating something:) Gorgeous tank!

How many gallons is this?
Jaime Andueza
Jaime Andueza - 9 years ago
@timbahlaya Thank you :) The water changes are done in the one hit. It takes 5 min to drain it and 10 minutes to refill it. I make sure the PH and temperature are the same in both lots of water and the rest is history. I found a guy that collects the water from the ocean and does the full operation for a very reasonable amount of $.He has all the right tools, thus the speed. I have been doing this now for over a year and I can assure you that there was an immediate improvement in the coral
Jaime Andueza
Jaime Andueza - 9 years ago
health and look the moment I started with this regime. I have never lost a fish or coral due to shock, so it cannot be bad. As "nlreeftank" mentions below, it is not necessary to do this, but it works for me. I encourage you to do it if you have the means.
timbahlaya - 9 years ago
Those are some of the most beautiful corals I've seen in a home reef! As for the 95% WC every 3 weeks... you couldn't mean all at once? If you do, mind elaborating?

@megafishtank1 I kept that Moorish Idol for 6 months. I had to give it away because is was a very fat and hungry fish that was making a meal of a few corals... he ate pellets like it was its most natural food. He has since then doubled his size and is doing really well. I have kept a couple of Moorish idols over the years and the trick has always been to make them used to eating pellets before introducing them into the main tank. They get fat easy and do really well on that food only...

@peregrine0508 The lighting system I have is pretty cheap. I have 8 light fittings X 2 T5s each that cover the full top of the tank. If anything they are pretty average. I think the trick is good water and lots of feeding. To keep the water clean and in good conditions, I change 95% of the water every 3 weeks. I only add Calcium and Reef Builder. I also run an ozonizer for 3 hours per day to keep the water nice and clear.
