Friday, oktober 8 2021 #panoramareef - The move to section1
20:00 Leon Koopmans and Stefan Vonk visited me and at some point i said i was going to move the inhabitant of all the small tanks towards section1 this weekend.
They offered to do it right now, so we did.....
As well oiled machine we move 2 tanks and cleaned up afterwards.
Great job done guys, thanks

Tuesday, oktober 12, 2021 #panoramareef - Happy with progres up till now. 5x GHL mitrax LX7205 used on 40% max producing 240PAR on the bottom @40cm waterhight. Slight silcate-algae showing up, which is normal in this stage.
In the weekend we did some small chores like mounting doors and lamp to segment1. Primary waiting for the weather to clearup so i can sand the raw planks outside.
Beside finishing the doors, the next mayor step is moving the water and lifestock from #DSR1200reef to segment2

Tuesday, oktober 12, 2021 - #panoramareef - making of the doors.
Finally it stopped raining and i work on the door. Sanding the planks, putting the door together and mounting them in front of the stand. My sanding belt was worn out so i stopped. Need to get new an spares to continue. Still three doors to go......

Thursday, oktober 14, 2021 - #panoramareef - the esthetics (tryout)
Drill holes into the doors which serves as handles and placed magnetic doorlocks. Also experimenting with frontpanels for the looks of it.

The panorama reef is built in between. The emphasis here is that it must remain fun.
The "moments of inspiration" must come together. That is why we sometimes jump from one subject to another.
What makes it more complex is that I can't fill the panoramareef in one go as long as the DSR1200reef is positioned perpendicular to it, because of the maximum floor load.
Also the bad weather and the shorter days make it more difficult to keep on working.
Normally I like working in the garden when the weather is nice.
But everything is progressing steadily and the end result I am working towards is becoming visible.
Note: Keeping a diary/report from the beginning is meant as a reference for myself. It is especially easy to read back how you handled things in the past and how you could possibly improve in the future.

Saturday, 16oktober, 2021. #panoramareef- building a sump ?
I did not intend to use a sump as i was suppose to be done. I had some glas lying around in the garden, so i decided to build one either way.
Because is didn't want to support and remove a support beam i cut the sump in 2 parts, which will be glued together after the placement. Just having great fun building useless stuff

Monday, oktober 19, 2021, #panoramareef - transplantation of the DSR1200reef.
This was quite a busy day aad leijendekkers come at 12:00 and we had quite a task moving all corals and fish and water from old tank to te new one
We try to do some scaping but we would not saw there was no time enough, so we just move all coral to segment3.
Some colonies were over 40 kilos and we could not move them out, so we start breaking them up in the tank.
Aad left at 17:00 after we emptied the old tank.

Saterday, oktober 23, 2021 - #panoramareef - the liftmechanism. Because the lightfixture was sitting on top of section2 i was not able to do any scaping to make place for the other corals, so i needed to mount the lifting mechanism to get acces to the tank. It took some measuring, fitting and welding to designing a mounting piece for the wire to bend the corners. But finally it was done.

. #panoramoreef - sump?
I wasn't sure whether i wanted a sump, because of the energy spills of moving large volumes of water up all the time.
First i planned to use 2-3 surface skimmers, but each have moving part in full light, which would require extra maintenance. I had some glas lying around, so just to be save i decided to build a sump anyway.
Because the stand was already build, filled and operational, it was not possible to place a single sump required to hold enough water without removing a support beam.
So the sump was build in 2 pieces and put together on the spot.

Wednesday, oktober 20, 2021 #panoramareef- placing the sump.

The sump was placed between the support beams. A few days later (oktober 25) we made aditional saltwater in the sump to raise the waterlevel of the tank to be able to activate the sump.

The main reason for me to install the sump is the surface skimming and secondly i didn't want to extend and recalibrate the water intake of the KHD.

For years I wonder about the best way to setup an adjustable-height light fixture. Yours is the best design I have seen. Is that a DIY LED fixture?

Tuesday, November 16, 2021, The #panoramareef is in the starting phase with all the up's and downs that goes with it. Now you have to be careful not to rush things .

I also went shopping at my main supplier of supplements.

I feel Blessed to have a GHL Profilux4 and accompanying KHD running.

The KHD calculator has been adjusted for EZ2Go and is on testing phase.

After a false start where dinos and then algae got the upper hand, the light has been off for 3 days and 10 urchins have been added.

Patience is a virtue. The photos speak for themselves.

This is a movie of the panoramareef about one month from the startup.


The GHL KHD take out a lot of time dailing in the system. Now it's realy running on cruise control with EZ2Go

Into the blue's
Unusually beautiful when illuminated differently.
We already know that green fluorescents....
A simple red gonio has blue tips and subtle golden edges.
A simple silver/blue montipora appears to glow green.
A normally dull acropora spatulata turns into a golden coral

The breakdown of the EZ550reef and the 140 liter experimental tank.
All lifestock was moved to the panoramareef and Treef.

I am done with small tanks.....
