CoralFragZ 560 Gallon Acropora Build

Post by Thomas Coral FragZ » Fri Apr 26, 2019 1:35 am

I struck a deal with @Acrononomus to purchase his 560 Miracles set-up found here https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/my-56 ... is.197422/. I want to give credit to Nick for building an amazing system, unfortunately, he just never had time to finish the project. I have decided to commit to finishing what he started. This community is very strong in knowledge and provided indirect and direct knowledge to be successful with the 320 gallon and look forward to also sharing back what I will learn with this build.

Tank details,
.75" Starphire Glass
120" X 36" X 30" Tall
External built on overflow.

Initial design details,

Plumb tank into existing 500 Gallon coral farm, Upgrade current pump to an Abyzz 400 to power both farm and 560 Gallon. Get a steel stand manufactured that I plan to use acrylic sheet and magnets to skin. Build floating canopy also out of same acrylic. Build light with LEDs COBS and T5. Flow will be provided by Panta Rhei pumps.

The reef will be an Acropora tank and instead of having a jam packed tank like in the past, this time, I would like to have a few select massive colonies displaying their natural form. One piece that will be the center piece is my Signature, The CoralFragZ Nemesis Tenuis.

Excited to start this journey one last time with you all. It is going to take time receive it all and will be building it up over the summer and hoping by September/October of 2019 it will be up and running.

The tank will be here in a few weeks as the stand is being built. So in the meantime I will share some of the corals that I am growing out for the new build!

Installed the Abyzz A400 on farm system. It replaced the reefflo dart at 40% so hopefully this will be able to service the farm and the new tank!

Chris Gillean told me he works with Metal as a hobby. After following his 600G build, I asked him to build me a stand and incorporate some kind of steps to stand on while I do maintenance and what he did left me very impressed. The stand is being delivered in a couple weeks so the fun will begin soon!
