Congrats on the split.

Accent lighting is very nice...

Also watch the webcam sometimes at night. Watched them put the T5 pulbs in the canopy.

Room is looking as good as the equipment.

Thanks for sharing....

Mike. Thank you.
Hope to see you in Bangkok in the near future.

With a tank this large are you planning on having some large school of fish? 40-50 Longspine/Blue eyed Cardinals would be AWESOME.

Anyways keep it up!

Dave. You are welcome to see my tank.
Yes, I will definitely have those fishes in my tank.
And also large school of these cardinal(Apagon Parvulus).

Look at my wave control center. No more messing with all the wires!
Have to give credit to the team of electricians.

Each of wavebox is controlled by 6091 individually.
I will not synchronize them.
Just want to preventing the breakdown of 6205 pump which is always occurred to me in the past.

It is the controller switch to move light rack up and down.

Fantastic Ching it looks awesome!!! Great video!
I really can't wait to see it filled with corals and fish. If you continue the current trend is going to be amazing. I love the "Life is too short to drink bad wine" in the door, you have thought of everything. My wife is now hooked, she asks me everyday to see if you have updated anything. She is going to dig this video.

Do you have individual wenches for each of the four corners of the canopy? I'm very interested in the details and any plans you my be able/willing to share, PLEASE!!!

Thanks so much,

Dave

He is using an electric lift/winch that is connected to all 4 corners. Lift is controllable by remote from the same power board his tunze controllers are on.

Nice Video Ching, the water level in the main tank seems to be rather high, have you tested the wave maker when it starts to pulse the wave? Will the water gets splashed out?

Hi Ching,

Great video! I could not visualize how water flowed through the sump before, but the video demonstrated it perfectly.

How much flow do you estimate to get through the refugium?

Ching question for you; I noticed in the video that all of your pumps are up at the surface, what are you going to do to ensure you have enough flow on the substrate to keep cyano from forming?
