Nicks Mini Reef 160 - Salt Virgin (ULM Triton)

Postby Nickalls » Mon 26 Aug, 2019 11:25 pm

Hi guys,

New to reefing, moving over from a high tech planted tank, an I have to say.. this is like an alien world to me, so much to learn!

I'm in the process of setting up a Mini Reef 160 an shopping for tech, which is my favorite part :-x The goal of this build will be ULM, running a fuge and the Triton Method, with LPS corals. The setup will be automated where possible, on a budget (So no Apex controllers :p)

Shopping list to date (I hope my partner never sees this list)

  • Aqua One Mini Reef 160 in black
  • Viparspectra 300w grow/fuge light
  • Coral Box Skimmer D300 plus
  • Holman 25mm x2 port manifold
  • K24 1" flow meter
  • Jebao DCP-6500 return pump
  • Jebao CP-40 cross flow pump
  • Jebao DP-4 dosing pump
  • Ripple Aqua ATO
  • Belkin BSV603 Surge Protection Strip
  • x2 Arlec Grid Connect WiFi smart power boards
  • x1 Arlec RCD
  • Aqua One Chiller Arctic L1/6hp 800-2200 L/hr 7-8 degrees B/A up to 300L
  • Emerson 300w Backup UPS
  • Seneye Reef

Seriously can't believe I'm this deep without any water in the tank! So far I've kinda test fitted some of the larger components to see how much space I have to work with. Electrical in progress, space is limited but where there's a will there's a way.
