  • Inside the glass box...

    Hello everyone!

    First time posting here on Zeovit! My name is Isaiah and I am based in Melbourne, Australia. It has been some time (around 5 years) since I have been in the hobby, many various reason to take a break, moving, studying, work etc. But now is the time to revisit it and once again enjoy keeping the ocean in a glass box.

    When I first stated it was about how fast can I set it up and how soon can I have fish. I learnt the hard way setting up a system like this. This time however I have taken my time to plan every detail of the system and do my best to ensure a successful tank that will be around for years to come.

    As most would agree bigger is better, however with this system I have decided to keep it small and manageable due to work commitments and space restrictions.

    Now, let's talk the setup!

    System:

    Tank: 60 x 45 x 45 cm Optiwhite - with an Eshopps Eclipse Overflow Box L
    Sump: 45 x 27 x 30cm Optiwhite
    Stand: Custom DIY - 60 x 45 x 100 cm

    Equipment:

    Lights: ATI Powermodule 6x24w
    Flow: 2x Ecotech Marine Vortech MP10w QD
    Return Pump: Ecotech Marine Vectra S1
    Skimmer: Royal-Exclusiv Bubble King Mini 160
    Zeovit Reactor: FSZ Magnet Floating Reactor
    Cooling: TBC
    Doser: eKoral 4 Channel
    Controller: eKoral Lite
    ATO: Tunze Osmolator 3155

    The system will be run using Zeovit, of course. I have wanted to try this for sometime and see the results on a smaller system. I hope to start sharing some pictures soon!

    Kind regards,

    Isaiah

    Hello Isaiah and welcome to ZeoVit.com !

    If you do not keep animals in the system already I would recommend you to cycle the system as described over here:

    If there are already animals in the system the start would be different.
