Why did you change from the 180? How tall is that stand?
Barrett Seal
Barrett Seal - 3 years ago
Well, it just ups all the costs (maintenance, equipment, livestock, coral) all the costs go up. I mean im not one to shy around from spending a buck but it's just a tad bit ridiculous. the 120 is the sweet spot for me.

Barrett Seal well dang I wanted to upgrade from my 90 to a 180. I was worried about maintenance difference.
Barrett Seal
Barrett Seal - 3 years ago
rcher72 180 was too much maintenance and the stand is 42 high.

Great looking setup. I just broke down my 75 and getting ready to start a 120. My first stand was a cluster of piping and wires. I have been looking all over youtube for ideas on how to clean it up and yours is definitely up there. Looking forward to more videos.

Maybe add a fan to ventilate the sump area? Powerbar and humidity...
Barrett Seal

I just added a CO2 scrubber. Looks good so far! I agree though I need a fan!

Thanks for your service sir. Awesome set up so far, besides tank size, you went balls out. Guess I will have to watch your other vids to figure out exactly what you want to stock in your tank. Looking forward to the progression.

Very cool, thanks for your response. I totally understand. I've been reefing since the late 80's and got out about 10 years ago. I decided to jump back in last September after I went on a long overdue dive trip. To make a long story short, I'm moving in less than a year, so I went smallish with a 93 cube to make it easier to move. I really miss a 6 foot tank, but have to wait until I'm moved. So do you talk about in any of your vids what kind of animals you plan on stocking your tank with?
Barrett Seal
Barrett Seal - 3 years ago
Thanks man! Yeah, I don't have time to maintain a gigantic tank and I wanted to be able to focus on it without it being overwhelming. I will have a running tank video here soon. The tank is now 3 weeks old so I will be doing it shortly. Thanks for stopping by!

looks clean but in my opinion it need way more flow and o2 gas exchange.....
Robert Luebke
Robert Luebke - 3 years ago
Barrett Seal ya 1720 gph in one direction hitting each other's flow in the middle. Part of the reason of the flow is to not let fish crap lay on the sand bed, under rocks, or in the corners of the tank. A few other pumps moving in different directions will mean way less maintenance. Point them towards the surface(which will help the PH) then in the middle of the tank where you have them pointing and then some pointing down to the bottom of the tank. Its a great looking aquarium man. I wish I could find room in my apt for that. No disrespect. Ive been cleaning and maintaining tanks for years and years.
Barrett Seal
Barrett Seal - 3 years ago
I'm interested in what you've said. More flow than a 1720 gph return pump and 2 mp40s? I'm all ears brother! I'm only year two in this hobby.

Nice. Finally watched all 5 episodes. Have 2 questions. Is there any other openings in the cabinet to let fresh air i. to help the ph? I beleive you said you were gonna close up the front. Also are you gonna put something between the tank and stand? You showed that little gap and I would hate to see you do all this and have your tank crack and the wife end your hobby lol.
Barrett Seal
Barrett Seal - 3 years ago
So I put little acrylic tabs in the gaps and it works great. The tank sits real nice on the stand so not real worried! As far as pH, I'll probably put a fan in there, Theres a hole where my returns come into my sump area so that provides some ventilation. Thanks for watching man!

be careful with where you have your heater. I had mine in the same spot and one day my return pump ran dry and having the heater in the return it died too.
