Re: My 600 gallon reef tank

Well , I got a some goodies for the tank room. I have decided to put in a dedicated a/c unit in the room, taking off the house system. I will also be installing an exhaust vent in the room. Many things led to this decision , so my new projects are starting.





i ran the electrical last weekend

Re: My 600 gallon reef tank

Well I got to knock out some stuff on my new project!

Saturday I got to form up a little pad for the ac , I took down the fan and replaced the light





sunday I ran all ac lines and got both pieces placed. I installed the exhaust fan









i still have a bunch of loose ends to finish up, but all the attic work is out of the way at least

Re: My 600 gallon reef tank

Now that I have the ac project wrapped up, I had an itch to clean up the powerheads today.
they got soaked in 75/25 water/vinegar bath for 3 hours. They came out great, well considering I've never cleaned them
