- Live sand : +/- 9 cm (so the waterlevel will be 50 cm)
- 2 sumps : 1 with fresh Live Rock and 1 for technical purposes : 2 x 120 cm - 40 cm - 35 cm.
- Skimmer : ATB ELEGANCE 200 PRO
- Balling : CORAL SHOP - MARINE LINE PLUS (Never, never, never CO2 in my tank !!!!!!)
- Lightning :mrgreen: .....sorry, Lighting : Probably PASIFIC SUN - LED or ad a first time 2 x 150 watt HQI + 6 x 54 watt T5 that later will be replaced by led (investment for de future).
- Waterflow : Ecotech Marine Vortech mp 40 x 2
- Aquatronica as steeringunit ( 2 x pH - 1 x Salinity - 1 x temp - 1 x redox)

The sumpdesign is based on three pilars :

1. The filtration as Coral-Shop has designed it.

Bild

2. The experience of Kurt Boffel (cfr reference tank CS) in the period he had bigg probs with his Ca-reactor Dastaco dual.

Bild

3. The experience of Robertus (Robert van Kemenade)in starting an aquarium with live rock in de sump (with light above it) and dead rock in the dispaly, and who was so kindfull to share it with me.

I'm stil waiting for the aquariumstand, so nothing else to mention here.

I fancy montipora plate corals : So why not looking to mother nature for some inspiration. Something like that, but smaller (cfr 2nd picture - coral in de left corner below) , must be our objectif.
