These are the steps to add someone. All I need is the name of your system and I'll add ya.
Two suggestions for you.
One dealing with electrical connections for your key switches and break out box being around saltwater..
Coat the ends with some dielectric grease, not bunches but some to help protect the metal from corrosion.
The other would be on the rock scape, I like it and it looks great. My suggestion would be to move it away from the back glass so that you get flow behind it keeping detritus from collecting there and it would offer space for cleaning or getting to something that fell behind without removing rocks.
Nice job on the key switches and bracket, looks good and very functional for you or a tank sitter.
thanks. There is a bit more space than it appears behind the rock but I will consider moving it forward.
The issue with the salt water and the contacts. I'm very cautious when doing water changes and messing with the tank. There is no sump so no salt water in the stand. Only fresh. But I think just for precautionary measures I'll get some of that grease for the terminals.
The first bracket got jacked up with bubbles and got burnt because I heated it up to much.
I'm also planning on making an acrylic cheato holder for one of the back sections. We'll see how that goes. I couldn't find acrylic glue anywhere local.. any suggestions. I did find some other glue st home depot that should work and the ingredient is Cyanoacrylate so I'm sure is just a more expensive superglue. I forget off hand what brand it is. I'll have to see when I get home. However I'd prefer to use the proper glue.
Peidimont plastics over in harrahan business district is a good source for plastics and weld on glue needed for acrylic work.
sure I spelled it wrong LOL. hit them up on google and you can call them.
This is what I bought. I'm more than positive it's over priced superglue.
Forgot the photos.
quit doing water changes, simple. lol
That may work for bonding not holding water tight or pressure.
I think it may be a type of superglue with some other additives possibly.
Weld-on is the only solvent glue that is used for acrylic that I know of, it actually creates a chemical bond melting / welding the two together.
She's finally wet.
I'm going to Peidimont plastics tomorrow to get the glue for the cheato holder I'm making.
Remind me with a text about what we were texting about please just in case I get another senior moment
Rockscape looks like it could be a person lol. The loclines give it personality lol.
Great work on the switches, that is one part I just never go around too on mine. The key switches is a great idea.
Despite the grief above lol I am a big fan of redundant float switches. They fail! They fail in our tanks and they fail in industry. Until someone comes up with an affordable Apex compatible and reef safe pressure transducer...and even then, we use backup floats for pressure transducers too!
Another project out the way. It's a cheato holder for one of the rear chambers.
nice work man!!!

Finally got delivered. Ordered a Reef Octopus Varios2 as a upgrade for the return pump.
Will it have legs at the bottom for the flow to leave the chamber, or will it hang from the top and have a space at the bottom?
Its going to hang. Its 14" long. So there will be a few inches below.
