  3. Kirk’s 350-ish build

    Sweet tank Kirk! I miss my 300 Planet tank, I’m sure you’ll love it. Can’t wait to see what you do with it. .

    Just get a cartridge filter canister and two fittings from home depot to run some carbon in.

    The biological side on my tank shouldn’t have change. I used same rock only difference from this small tank and the 300 is no sand in the small tank. I’m perplexed. Only thing I can think of is quick swings in nutrients compared to the 300. I’ve chased pretty much every lead I can..going to get a slightly bigger tank to see if this helps. .

    Sweet sticks! Tank looks great. Hope you have better luck than I’m having with this small tank. .

    Thanks guys, it’s definitely much different than having the 300. After having a big tank then going back to small it’s much more challenging .

    each type I've used exhaust extremely fast. I've use TLF, BRS, and even bought bulk media that welders use. A canister would exhaust in 3-4 days for me. While the media stablized Ph while new, its very difficult to maintain the stability as it exhaust and a normal working adult schedule..my two cents.

    made some changes to the tank between yesterday and today.....Note to self, never try to use a canister filter again AND never buy a non-drilled tank...So much easier with a sump. Anyways I removed the canister filter, installed HOB overflow and a Ice Cap 24 sump with Vectra S1. These ice cap sumps are pretty nice! It has ATO compartment built in, a probe rack, and a dosing rack. It also has a nifty scale stuck to it to show water depth in inches. Pretty quality piece if someone is looking for a sump. Not a real big fan of HOB overflows but I didn't want to drain tank to drill an overflow. So get it installed everything running, checking for leaks and of course the bulkhead is leaking. Small leak so I wrapped with a towel for the night and replaced it today. Not sure what was wrong with it but it just wouldn't seal. Oh another complaint about HOB overflow is the noise. After some google searching I found a mod to the drain called Stockman overflow. After three trips to each home depot or Tractor supply I finally have a nice and quiet overflow and no leaks. Geez, the plan was to down size and not have to deal with issues....guess issue never end. Did some rock movement since install of the HOB overflow, looks much better.
