Innovative Marine Ext 100 Gallon Tank Build

Well been thinking about starting a reef tank for some time finally bit the bullet.

Got the tank stand set up, then got some people to help me move the tank onto the stand and started plumbing today. I'll try to keep snapping some pictures as I go.

I dont know if you already got the current usa power heads but I didn't have a good experience with them. They barely pushed water

I did figured could put it all on one controller (didn't want to go the Apex route just yet still new to the hobby). see what happens between the 1900gph flow of the dc pump and wavemaker hopefully will have enough current. Appreciate the heads up.

Thanks see how this goes and if not enough flow I'll probably go that route.

Got my aquascape done, rinsed and added dry sand. Letting PaleoBond dry tonight and will add water tomorrow! Once saltwater is appropriate will add live sand as well. Getting excited!

Was just going through my orders again because my powerhead moves a lot of water. Realized I bought a 2100gph unit, did you maybe get a 600 or 1050 gph unit?

I got the 600 but it was for a nano and barely moved water

Yeah 2100 moves a lot of water. Did decide to get a 2nd so I could put them at half power on each side to get good flow and not blow away 1 side of the tank. Got my tank up and running!
