This is my build thread for the 10 gallon contest. I am not eligible for the prizes just thought I would do one for fun. Now on to the fun stuff. I will be setting this up after I get back from spring break at the end of the weel.
Tank: 10 Gallon All-in-one Corian Tank courtesy of RedfishSC who built this himself. Matt has already had this tank set up before. Thanks for the tank Matt.
Tank price- FREE
Lighting: 2X65 PC retrofit kit took out of an old coralife fixture that was messed up. I received this for free courtesy of Saltwateraddict. Thanks!
Price deducted from budget- $30
For filtration I will be utilizing the all in one system which will be ran by a Maxi-Jet 400 or 600 which I will be picking up this week sometime while on spring break.
Budget left- $107.50
There will be about a 1 inch sand bed with 7-12 pounds of live rock.
Stuck a cheap canopy together to hold the retrofit kit. Bought all the wood and supplies from lowes to build it.
Here's the threads from when I had it set up. Was an awesome tank but I just had to move up to a slightly bigger system. Wanted to do SPS and LPS and just needed the water stability that only a larger system can give.
Yes Cammie I will be using the sump part. I think I am going to throw in some chemipure elite as well as a desk lamp with a bulb for a small refugium on it. I am very anxious to get it going this coming up week.
I filled it up and it is really close to 10 gallons counting the sump so I don't really think that should matter with my outcome. I just wanted to set this up rather than a regular 10 gallon so it would be something different for people to look at.
