Juwel 240 litre sumped

Post  cjmurphy on Wed 25 Nov 2009, 2:36 pm

Here's a few pics of my new set up kindly donated by juliamarina in exchange for some hard labour so thanks very much to her Very Happy

Id also like to thank Sean for giving up his time to help with this build which was mostly completed in one day working flat out.
Thanks to Madone also for his help with the glass, cheers mate.

Hopefully soon, we'll see some shots of Sean's now sumped, Juwel 400 litre with awesome closed loop system.

The Build

Juwel 240 litre tank drilled and the cabinet modified to accept a 50 litre sump.

Total system volume is 270 litres.

3 chambered sump with bubble trap:


Can breathe again as the hole is drilled and black background applied: Smile


24 hour wait for silicone to go off on weir and comb: Rolling Eyes


Up and running but looking very empty for the moment:

Hi Craig, What a brilliant job you have done, the tank looks fab., with everything hidden, can't wait to see it when you have got more rock etc., thanks for all your help with mine.

Am sending pictures of the full tank, and stand inclusive, later on this evening.

Lol,

Juliamarina sunny flower lol!

Thanks Julie, The refugium area is pretty maxed out with chaeto and sand but if I can fit some mangroves in then great.
Corals starting to look better and im looking forward to buying alot more rock, then maybe get some sps and suitable fish.

No hurry though as it wont be cheap and looks ok for now.
The hard works done anyway so just a case of enjoying the maintanence and stocking. Smile

that looks great Craig, I find the thought of drilling tanks, and sumps etc very scary, bu there's no doubt it improves a marine tank no end, with all the gubbins out of sight !! Looking forward to seeing this mature and grow!
