I thought I would do a live demo of current in my new tank. And maybe show some options on supporting a large tank in your house.


Man that sounds great! But have we decided on the book meeting too though?  I really think wee could build a valuable resource for the club if we knew what everyone had and could ask to borrow!  :D

I am hoping to learn from the Master at making tanks more quiet :wink:

Why settle for a 400 when 1000 gallon would be better?  8)
Why not design the house around the tank??????  :D
Just think, you and your wife could each have your own 100 cubic feet of reef, and not have the hassle of multiple tanks to care for.  8)
On a serious note, I have decided that the flow you all saw in the new tank last night was too much like a hot tub on steroids. :shock:    And to think that there is one more closed loop pump circuit going in.  :shock: I intend to change the 3/4 HP pump motor to the same one on the Amp master 7500. (1/3 HP capacitor start, 1725 RPM)
I also changed the tank jets for that 3/4HP unit out from 1" to 1.5" tank jets. That seemed to help on the splashing some but not enough.  :(  I must say that I'm glad I have that set up in the shop and not here in the house.

A most impressive display of man's ability to be over the top.  Way to go Les.  But like Rick said last night "its beeter to have too much flow and be able to turn it down than not have enough flow."  That is going to be an awesome set up.

I wanted to add my thanks to Les for hosting our meeting.  Your hospitality (and your mother's) was greatly appreciated!

I also wanted to let everyone know that I have updated the website with pictures from last night's gathering.  Take a look . . .
