The aquarium is in place

The aquarium is in place and it looks great. It is custom built and ordered from Decocean, who has been great in aswering questions and have great service. Now I am beginning the process of filling it with cold salt water. The reverse osmosis reactor is working full time. I have cheated and added 100 liters of rain water too and 75 liters of real seawater from Rågeleje. A DIY solution for the lightning is also in place. It is made out 3 X 1o W outdoor spots. I am ot sure it is enough even though cold water tanks need less light.

Everything is ready for the new tank. A DIY solution for the lightning is also in place. It is

Coldwater saltwater aquarium building 1

My dream aquarium project is taking form! We have moved and the new house has a perfect spot for a aquarium. The old toilet-room shares a wall with the living-room and the entrance. The wall has been knocked down and extra reinforcements are in place. The aquarium will measure 95 X 85 cm and 70 cm in height. Since the frontgals and one of the sides are thermoglass, the final inside measure is 81 x 91, so I end up with appr. 500 liters of water in the main tank.
