Thought I better start my tank thread early as seeing how useful some of the builds on here have been, it makes alot of sense to me to keep notes. Seen as I have just bought a second hand Signature 900 from the classifieds it makes even more sense.
A little background:
I have been keeping fish(mainly tropical) for the past 25 years or so.
I have learned alot over the years but never really took the plunge into marines until 2 years ago.
In the past I have kept a moray eel and believe it or not an octopus lol but never really took things seriously until I bought an Aquaone 120 around 24 months back.
I have really enjoyed keeping this tank and convincing my better half that this hobby is the way forward for us both ha ha ( She looks after it for me when I’m away working) but I need a new challenge…
I have managed to keep this tank quite simple on how I have been running things ie good lighting,skimmer, live rock etc so thought I might be able to do this again but in a slightly larger tank surprising on how quickly tanks fill up.
My future plan was to buy a RS 350 next summer as we are currently buying the house we live in but when I happened to see this Sig 900 forsale, I thought I would go for it as would be easier to handle incase we had to move again in the future.
So equipment up to now:
Radion Gen3 pro x1
Coral box D300 skimmer
Aqua medic multi reactor small (phos)
2x 150watt heaters
Stc 1000 temperature control
Smart ATO micro (love this)
Vortech mp10 w x1
Jebao wm-25 x1
Plus I have a couple of smaller pumps.
Return pump,not sure yet but suggestions appreciated???
Another circulation pump
Kamoer Dossing pump as manually dosing ATM
Live stock will be moved across from my 120 (mix) I may sell some stuff as moving forward I want to concentrate on lps/SPS.
I have some macro Algae too which i purchased from Esox on here and I love it so will be definitely staying too also around 25kilo of Live rock which will move over also. I’m also
Running a refugium in the 120 ATM with
Chaeto/ Caulerpa in and tank has been so stable this last year so will stay with this system going forward.
Ok will update as I go but may be a slow build with Christmas etc

So I bought my Sig 900 from the classifieds off of Andy1982 and I’m more than happy with the deal I got it for so thanks bud
But my missus has thrown a spanner in the works by insisting it needs to be white and not black grrrrr. So after having a chat with a member on here (Crookesy) (thanks bud),who offered to spray it for me I had to make a decision on whether it was worth me traveling to Sheffield or find someone nearer to home so I thanked Crookesy for the kind offer and decided on it made more sense for me to drop it off with a company closer to home as then i could just leave it with them and not worry about two long journeys to drop off and to pick up.
So today I have dropped the cabinet off and hopefully it will be wrapped this week or next week (Christmas allowing )

A bit, about 280£ it will probably be to strong for the 900 but it is a serious pump for a sps tank, I’ve seen it in my local LFS on a 8’x4’ frag tank and it is probably the best out der at the moment with the controller there’s no need for a wavemaker to as it will produce pulse and some other crazy stuff

I know how you feel, got to many kids in my house and she won’t let me swap one for a 350ltrFebruary 11, 2019 at 3:13 pm #5615welly_nellyParticipant
Trip to BnQ today for some new hinges and cupboard catches as the ones on the cabinet have collected rust quite bad but an easy fix
