    Jrpark22000 Nem tank

    The tank arrived on friday and I've got a good start on it. Holes are drilled, locline is in, glass-holes overflow is modified and installed, and marble floor is cut. The tank will be attached to my DT via the common sump. The nem tank will sit on a shelf on the right end of the DT stand.

    It's a Mr Aqua 17.1 gal 60cmx30cmx36cm(aprox 23"lx12"wx14"t) low iron tank from marinedepot. If you are use to glass-holes 700gph boxes, they only have teeth on the front. With a few minutes on the milling machine I cut the side and back teeth. Then added a 3/8" acrylic peice to the back as a spacer. Lastly, cut all the teeth about 3/8" shorter. The mods double the teeth allowing for a lower water level allowing it to be mounted higer in the tank. The marble tiles are to protect the BB glass bottom, simialr to my DT.

    I still need to paint the background black (just the side with the returns,) modify the sump plumbing, build the return plumbing, build the shelf and supports, tear down the Pico, soak the marble in ro/di, build rockwork, mount the par38 while I wait to find a deal on a AI sol and proab a few other things I'm forgetting.

    Playing around with the rockwork.

    Was able to pick up an AI SOL for a good used price. The background has been painted, still need to built/modify all the plumbing, build the shelf and supports, tear down the Pico, soak the marble in ro/di, build rockwork, mount the Sol. A lot to get done before the nem is ready.

    Thanks Tin and Luna. It's a work in progress, will let it sit for a couple days before tweaking anymore.
