Cool Jaysan's new Upgrade Build thread

After running my 22 Gallon long nano for about 1.5 years, it was time to get a larger tank. The tank was getting full and I still wanted MORE corals...

So the wifey has agreed to let me 'upgrade' to a slightly larger tank...

A quick picture of the 22 Gallon taken a couple of weeks ago:


As you can tell, its way over stocked.

So the new build beings...oh so fun!

This is the tank when it was still running at the previous owners place:

Tank:


Sump:


The tank was tore down, cleaned up and re-setup at my place all thanks to Manh-tu for helping out with this process:

Tank Cleaned and sand substrate emptied:


Sump cleaned up and placed into the stand:


Used this mat and placed it on the bottom of the tank. It was perfect at 36x18.


Re-did the plumbing from soft tubing to hard PVC:
Added a reverse durso in the sump to decrease the sound more from the bubbles. Worked wonders!


Then it was onto playing with the rocks:
First design...but it ended up bring too low..




So I went and picked up some more rock and played with it and came up with this which I was happy about. I might change up the rocks but for now, I don't mind it

The new tank is 36x18x18.

The tank is currently cycling with the new rockwork. I've put gsp in the tank already and they've opened up with the crappy Par30 light I currently have over it. LOL

I will slowly be moving some pieces over from the old tank once I have the Radion setup on the mount
