Thread: Tardis 8

  1. #1

    Tardis 8

    I'm calling this tank the TARDIS, because it's small on the outside, but will be filled with things beyond your imagination, on the inside! (well, maybe not. but just go with it) This will be a desk tank, in my brand new office!

    I placed the order last night, and everything has shipped this morning.

    Innovative Marine Nuvo 8 with Skkye 14000k clamp light - Clamp light is soon to be outfitted with 4 additional Cree royal blues, 1 UV and 1 warm white LEDs, on a separate, dimmable driver from the remaining 4 stock skkye equipped whites.

    CustomCaddy media basket, filled with a bag of chemipure elite and purigen.

    Black tahitian moon sand

    Upgraded Cobalt MJ600 return pump

    Auqa Gadget Seaspin return nozzle

    ViaAqua Titanium 50w heater

    I plan to keep lps and zoas, with the possibility of spongode montipora. Fish will consist of 8 baby yellow tangs, and a nursing whale shark. See, I told you, beyond your imagination!

    I'm going for a heavy blue, martian theme. Hence the black sand and overpowering royal blue/UV configuration. The scape will be unique and innovative... marine!

    Stay tuned for the next episode - TBC

    Update : Tank arrived. I finished modding the skkye light with cree leds. Ended up with 4 royal blue, 1 UV and 1 warm white. The warm white is on it's own power source, so i can go full actinic if I want. I am going to get some 60 degree lenses to control all of that light spill. Other than that, I'm happy with the color.

    Here's a photo. The color is a little off, imagine the yellow highlight glowing like yellow highlighter should glow.
