For main tank (about 1000L volume) I use 4 EcoTech Vortech MP40 (2 pump work for wave) & 2 Maxspect Gyre 330, EcoTech Vectra M1 return pump, ATI LED-Powermodule 8×80 Watt T5 + 4×75 Watt LED, skimmer – Bubble King® Double Cone 300 (before I used Deltec SC3070), calcium reactor DaStaCo XtremA Model A-3.
For frag tank (about 1200L volume) I use 4 EcoTech Vortech MP40, EcoTech Vectra M1 return pump, ATI LED-Powermodule 8×54 Watt T5 + 3×75 Watt LED, 2 Ecotech Radion G4 PRO, Bubble King® Double Cone 250 + RD3 Speedy, calcium reactor DaStaCo XtremA Model A-3.
Feeding & care
I use Fauna Marin Professional sea salt and make frequent small water changes (5-10L every day, or 10-15L ones per 2-3 days). TwoLittleFishes Acropower daily (maximum dose). Brightwell Aquatics Microbacter7 (or TwoLittleFishes Bactiv8® NPX, or Fauna Marin Bacto Blend) weekly.
I’m feeding my corals and fishes a lot! For fish I use different flakes from Omega One and sometimes frozen food like Artemia or DVH Ocean Prime Copepods 2mm, for corals I use Polyp Lab Reef Roids, TwoLittleFishes ZoPlan, FM Coral Sprint, DVH Ocean Prime Copepods 500-700 µm.
I have algae filter (refugium) for my tanks with metal halide lamp 70w 4200K.
Live rocks for aquascape in main tank + some rocks and Marine Pure Spheres 7,5L in sump. Also live rocks + Marine Pure Spheres 7,5L in sump for frag tank.
I check PO4 and kH, so, if necessary, I change the coral feeding and setting of calcium reactors. Parameters in my tanks – kH = 8-8.5, PO4 = 0.04-0.09 (max 0,1), NO3 = 3-5 (max 10), Ca = 420-450, Mg = 1300-1340.
Sometimes I make ICP tests from ATI Lab to check all parameters. And if something is wrong, I can correct it by adding the necessary trace elements (but this happens very very rarely).
When full light is on, I have 250 PAR on the bottom in the middle of main tank and 50-100 PAR on the bottom left/right side, 300-400 PAR in the middle of the tank and 600-700 PAR at the top of the tank.
Sunrise 8.00 – 12.00, full light 12.00 – 15.00, sunset 15.00 – 21.00.
In my Hybride lamp I use ATI tubes – 6 Blue Plus, 1 Coral Plus and 1 Purple Plus.
