  1. We were visited by MeerwasserLive TV by Chris & Bjørn @ our London facility. They toured our facility which included our fish house to see our amazing fish, coral and invertebrates systems! Also took a tour of the filtration & pump room with our huge protein skimmers! Lastly but not least a tour of our Big Fish Room which has some large Honeycomb Whiptail Rays, Banded Houndshark and Japanese Hornshark.... Please note the spoken language is German but we've added English subtitles! remember to turn them on...
  2. New Mega Tank Build in TMC's Reception....

    Still thinking about that, but it will be a mixed reef, not 100% sure fish but there will be wrasse involved... Also glad to see you've fixed the issues with the forum
  3. New Mega Tank Build in TMC's Reception....

    For flow inside the tank, we are using REEF-Tide Compact a 6000 and a 10,000
  4. New Mega Tank Build in TMC's Reception....

    Lets put some equipment in... First, lets put the auto top up I'm using our new REEF-Fill Compact using two inferred sensors... Next the Protein Skimmer, I'm using a REEF-Skim 1000 DC fantastic skimmer really easy to use and extremely quiet already pulling skim-mate out when there isn't anything in the tank Now to catch the muck out of the tank we are using a REEF-Roller L doing a great job!

    Let's fill the tank with water...

    A little update Next job was to put the rock back in the tank the same way wish me luck Now let's wash the sand so we don't have a foggy tank once we put the water in - don't want to be that guy with a foggy tank "asking how long should the water stay cloudy?" Next job to put the rock then the sand in the tank! What do you think so far?

    I do think softy tanks are very underrated, I do like the idea!
  11. New Mega Tank Build in TMC's Reception....

    I certainly will do...
  12. New Mega Tank Build in TMC's Reception....

    Its around 3ft x 2ft x 2ft, I do like the idea of a softy or a nps tank...
  13. Hi All, I thought I'd start a new Tank Thread! I'm removing the TMC Signature tank that is in the reception area currently and replacing it with a REEF-Habitat tank. Equipment I'm looking to use will all be latest TMC products ! TMC REEF-Habitat tank TMC REEF-Sump XL - Reef roller ready TMC REEF-Roller TMC REEF-Skim PRO DC 500 TMC REEF-Tide Standard TMC REEF-Tide Compact TMC REEF BIO-Gro - Algae Reactors TMC REEF-Fill Compact TMC REEF Pump 4000 or 8000 TMC REEF-Filter 1000 TMC REEF EASI-Dose Dosing System TMC EASI-Dose 3 Dosing Container 4.5L TMC REEF EASI-Stir Magnetic Stirrer Don't think I've forgotten anything !lol Let me know if I have.. Now inside the tank coral sand and Pukani Dry rock.. I'll be using Tropic Marin® NITRIBIOTIC to start the tank cycle - The nitrifying bacteria efficiently start the nitrification process, i.e. the process of breaking toxic ammonia down into non-toxic nitrate. Tropic Marin BIO-ACTIF Sea Salt Tropic Marin Original Balling Component Tropic Marin K+ ELEMENTS and A- ELEMENTS Fish - what should I add? Corals - which type of corals should I add SPS only, LPS only Soft Corals or a mix of all? Or do you have an great idea let me know! Hopefully we'll have time Friday to shut down the signature tank and get the new REEF-Habitat tank in! Any comments or ideas on this please do comment...
