    Hi there,

    I am GlennF. I am from the Netherlands and start this thread to introduce my tank properly in here.

    It measure 250 x 80 x 70 cm and the water height is 60cm.
    The main display is 1200 liters.
    Including the other connecting tanks the water mass is about 1650 liters

    this is a FTS of the front

    Here are some system details:
    Display tank : Plain Glass, custom build 250x80x70cm (60cm visible width and height)
    Stand : Self build and welded from steel profiles.
    Sump: single compartment 75x42x65cm (13cm water height)
    Protein Skimmer: using an old schuran skimmer as a base, I modified it to run on 4 wooden air stones driven by a velda silenta pro 1800 pond air pump.
    I use a 150mg/h ozone reactor connected to an mv controller, which is dosed through the skimmer.
    Zeolite reactor for bacteria and plankton breeding as food for the corals, which I shake once a week only
    18 watt UV lamp
    Carbon/phosphate filtration: No use of carbon, GFO or bio-pellets. Self build zeolite reactor filled with pond zeolites.
    Return Pump: Royal exclusive red dragon 6500 (6500l/h) with filter wool on the intake which i clean every 3-5 days.
    Water Circulation: 1x jeboa rw15, 1× Jeboa rw20, 1x tunze 6100 connected to an IKS computer .
    Ca/Alk/Mg dosing:
    I use DSR, my own method with no water changes.
    If needed I dose my own made supplements.
    Manually: Boron, Potassium, Magnesium (measure and correct)
    On dosing pumps: IKS 4 channel for : iodide, iron, Carbon V/S, Strontium
    On JeBao 4ch dosing pump: Alk, Ca, NO3, PO4
    ATO: DIY Auto water filler (works on a siphon and gravity from a 50 liter tank placed in the bathroom)
    RO/DI: simple 375 liter /day 3step RO device with an additional silicate filter and a TDS meter, daily turned on by a garden timer.
