    Thank you kirk_m. .

    "Swiss cheese." Haha! Most appropriate analogy. There are videos of the new ceramic reef (you can't see the overflows at all) on my Instagram page @wetworknola. .

    The SCWDs were part of the original installation. When I took over the system they'd already failed. For the restoration I chose the CPR overflows because of their very low internal profile and, more importantly, the fact that there were already a ridiculous number of holes in the back pane, 8 to be exact, all of which were too low to use for overflows. Consequently, they were all sealed. .

    It's located in the lobby of IMCT.com. On Club Deluxe Rd. in Hammond. TSV is 238 gallons. For those of you that have Instagram, there are videos of the newly installed ceramic reef @wetworknola. .

    Thank you Stoned. The freezer was deleted from the rebuild since there's one in the employee break room. They love the smell of mysis in the morning. .

    No comments? Criticisms just as welcome as questions and compliments.

    Here are a few shots of Reef 238's fish room. Just a few minor details remain, which will be completed this weekend after the reef goes in. But first, the "before" shots . . . And "after" . . . Vectra/Vortech drivers and power supplies, iPad Mini for Apex Fusion access, 180 GPD RO/DI. Right end. Orphek Atlantiks on modified monitor mounts can be tilted back and locked in place against the wall. Flow meter on main return. Cable management detail. The stand is 316 stainless steel, powdercoated. Dri-Dek covers the entire floor, even under the sump and skimmer. Tunze submersible LEDs illuminate the refugium. Seawater mixing. Flow meter on main return from Vectra L1. Perimeter trim around the tank's contact points with the wall remain. Left end. Orphek Atlantiks on modified monitor mounts that allow them to be swung back and locked into place against the wall. Right overflow, UVS, chiller. Two DOS and two DDR units for application of the Triton Method. Sump is completely covered. Two Spyglass reactors are supplied by the M1. Water change inlet line on the right. Flow meter for monitoring flow to skimmer. Pretty lights. Shameless plug for industry brands Clockwise from bottom left: Avast Marine Skimmate Locker; Apex AC5 base unit; Apex leak, flow, Vortech, and level sensor modules; MRC Orca Pro I with Colder Industries NS6 no-drip quick disconnect on drain line. Front view of Orca skimmer. Water change drain line in foreground. Apex EB832 and EB8; Triton dosing connections; sump covers of lightweight blown PVC. We retained and restored the wood panel at the back for nostalgia's sake.
  12. Parade of Tanks

    We'd love to add Reef 238 at IMCT in Hammond to the parade if you're interested. The reef's shipping delay has it going in in conflict with the meet at CC, so we'd be happy to make it available for a tour on another date.
  13. Brand new, sealed box MP40wQD available for the authorized sale price of $296.65. We will even personally deliver if you are within 25 miles of 70119. BRS is out of stock, so grab this while you can. It's the last one!
  14. On-Site PAR Measurement Service

    Indeed it would. We will take the initial measurements, then wait while you adjust your lights, and measure again to make sure your settings are correct before we leave.
  15. Korallenwelt Class Now 10/7

    Figured I'd better post this as a separate topic so no one misses it . . . DELIVERY DELAYED The Korallenwelt installation is delayed until Saturday, October 7th We just received word that the pallet got bumped from the flight that was supposed to get it to MSY last night. Now it's on a flight to Huntsville arriving tomorrow, then a truck to MSY and then Hammond. Unfortunately, delays of this type are not uncommon with imports. If its not a bumped flight, it is often customs delays. I am terribly sorry for any inconvenience this might cause for anyone that had plans to attend tomorrow. 10/6 is 100% solid, so I hope to see you there. We will be starting at 8:00 AM. Hopefully some of you will drop by on your way to the frag swap at Coral Connection. If you can't make it before, we will still be at it until at least 9PM that night. Anyone planning on attending, please PM to let me know so I can make sure there are enough refreshments and food for everyone.
