    Wet Work Reef 924 Continued

    11/11/14 10:17 AM

    Back on 9/15/2014 Aquarium Specialty reported on the Wet Work project with Sam Slobusky.  The project is underway at the customers location and we thought it would be nice to share some Elos 924 gallon aquarium and stand and Royal Exclusiv Dreambox photos with you.   Enjoy...

     

    Elos craftsmanship at it's finest

    The client now has his Quarantine System in place.  To make sure there were no leaks or plumbing concerns, Sam spent about 3 days working on the instillation and water testing the setup with fresh water before bringing it fulling online with saltwater.  I would say it's very impressive at the least!

    BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks

    BioTek Marine Filter Socks

    You rarely see a blog article about filter socks, however, the new BioTek Marine nylon filter socks offer a huge advantage over standard felt type filter socks.  These filter socks are easier to use and offer long-term economy over their felt-type counterparts, even though they cost slightly more on the front end. So let's discuss the BioTek Marine advantages.

    The most notable advantage is longevity.

    BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks are Longer Lasting: You may expect these nylon socks to last for dozens of cleanings before they need to be discarded and replaced.  Unlike standard felt-type filter socks that typically only last for 3-4 cleanings, BioTek Marine filter socks can be reused dozens of times before needing to be replaced.

    Next advantage, cleanability.

    BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks are much easier to clean: Standard felt-type socks are difficulty to thoroughly clean.  Typically, when a standard filter sock is cleaned, it must be rinsed in a dish washer or washing machine to get them cleaned well enogh to use them again.  This can be a stinky process that will make you unpopular aound the house.  Also, running the dish washer or washing machine uses additional energy in these times when we are all trying to do our part for the lanet (not to mention our wallets).  BioTek Marine Nylon Filter socks can easily be rinsed out in a sink or with a garden hose in just a minute or two, and returned to the sump for reuse.

    Finally the value factor.

    The BML LED light strip are available in 4 stock colors including; 12000K, 14000K, Super Actinic and Purple Wave which produces a visible light spectrum ver similar to the Korallin Zucht Fiji Purple and the ATI Purple Plus T5 lamp.  The strips are available in 12", 18", 24", 30", 36", 48", 60" and 72" lengths and they can be tank mounted with the option tank mount bracket or they can be hung with a BML hanging kit for easy hight adjustment and light spread.  Optics options are also available in 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 degree configurations.  We have included a table to help you decide what optics are best for your particular needs.  Keep in mind that this is just a recommendation and it's possible you may decide to go with different optics for your unique setup.  Other than the 4 available stock spectrums, Build My LED also offers custom spectrums but most people will find that the stock configurations are just what is needed for coral growth and coloration.  For pricing on the XB Series and standard series BML fixtures please visit here.

    Aquarium Specialty is setting up a new low iron glass 60 gallon cube featuring a lot of high end equipment and we are naming it the MOACC (Mother of All Clown Cubes).  We unashamedly borrowed the concept of the name from Reef Builders who named our MATSA Aquarium (Mother of All Trade Show Aquariums) a couple of years back.  The MOACC aquarium will house a few different anemones including a rather difficult to keep blue carpet anemone and a Rainbow Inferno Bubble Tip Anemone along with about 30 Proaquatix captive raised clown fish that just arrived today.  

    We will keep this going as an active blog post with updated specs, pictures and videos.  Down the road we might even add a web came just for fun.  To stay up to date with additions to our MOACC display please like us on facebook or feel free to bookmark the page.  We hope you will enjoy our little pet project.

    The photos taken on 12/12/13 are under a 16K Orphek DIF100 pendant.  We will have the new "anemone" diode array sometime next week if all goes well.  At that time we will be introducing the blue carpet anemone.

    Here's a list of the equipment included in the setup.

    • Deep Blue 60 Gallon Rimless low iron glass tank (24"x24"x24")
    • Aquaroche Ceramic Rock
    • CaribSea Tropical Isle Tahitian Moon Sand
    • Blue Life USA black background
    • Trigger 20" x 20" x 15" custom sump
    • Waveline DC6000 Return Pump
    • RLSS R6-i Protein Skimmer
    • Triton Aquatics PO4x4 Reactor
    • Orphek DIF100 with custom anemone diode array with Neptune Control
