Acrylic aquarium (Seamless / Spun-Cast) 66" Tall and 45" in diameter.
2" square-stock metal stand, powder coated
is 36" tall with 3/4" plywood top.
The entire filter system, except the
chiller, fits under the tank and consists of two separate systems; an extra tall
wet-dry trickle filter, Euro-Reef protein skimmer and a 1/3 HP AquaLogic Chiller
driven by a 800 GPH Iwaki (japanese) 40 RLT water pump. The second system is an
1800 GPH Dart pump and a canister filter for a pleated cartridge. All pumps have
union and ball valves for easy removal. To be sure it all fit I did a mock-up of
the system before it was installed.
The artificial coral reef surrounds and
hides the 8" x 8" Internal Overflow, which is where the water drains from the
tank. The overflow contains a 1.5" Durso Stand Pipe and 3/4" return line. The lighting
consists of three 18" 96 watt SunPaq Quad power compact fluorescent lights.
The artificial coral reef consists of a
fiberglass body which specially formulated silicone rubber colored cast
corals that are individually attached.
