Christmas in October

Post by strout2 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 2:26 pm

Some of you know I am working my way towards a new tank.
Well, went to the LFS today and bought some of the equipment for the new tank today, some I came home with :D and some will have to be :( ordered. What I got:

Bubble Magnus Dosing Pump
1 MP 40 the second one will come out of my 125g tank
1 Tunze Auto top off system
1 Apex Lite & PH probe, want to bet I won't get this to work
1 300w heat probe
1 Mag 1200 pump tank return
1 Mag 950 for manifold
2 GFO/ Carbon reactors
1 Reef Octopus Bio Pellet Reactor
Was going to buy the Kalk Reactor, LFS owner talked me out of that for right now.
Almost forgot 2 AOI Sol LED lights

Since I spent most of my money, I just put some money on store credit towards the tank, The tank will be made by DSA, size will be 48x24x25 could be 48x30x25, we will see later on that,
in the mean time I can start building the stand and get the electrician to the house for a new wall outlet.
I am getting smarter though, I remembered to take the price stickers off of the boxes this time,
and gave the wife her Christmas spending money today.

Almost forgot :lol: Get my SPS Frag pack ready Andy

sounds like you just dropped a wad of cash. we need to see a build thread for this one.

why did they talk you out of the kalk reactor? Are they suggesting you go with a calcium reactor?

Wow... I got sticker shocked on that purchase...


Shouldn't need any reactor with a dual- or tri-channel doser and 2 part.

I will post a build thread when I get the tank, that may have to wait till after Thanksgiving maybe Christmas :( :( The wifes family is havig X mas at our house and I don't think the wife would like having two tanks set up in the living room with all those people at the house. Hey, shes letting me get the tank, I can wait a bit to get the tank set up, lol maybe.
