My 220 lives again. Warning a few pictures.

Postby DEREKD » Wed Dec 21, 2016 7:35 pm

I wanted to get on here and share some of the photos from the beginning of the new life of my 220 display. This was my old tank a few years back. 1 to many crashes and I gave up on it.
Image
This was the tank sitting in storage.

Image
Had to get a new sump. The RS300 works well.

Image
Sump, sand, and some new SB Reef Lights.

Image
Got the tank in the house.

Image
Looks much bigger than the old 75 gallon.

Image

Image
Drains and return ready.

Image

Image
Took some persuasion but the sump fit.

Image

Image
Trying to determine if the canopy will work with the new lights.

Image
Adding the lights.

Image
BOOM.. we have lights.. started moving things over.

Image
Few months.. things are looking good.

Image
Thanksgiving. Living art.

I also have a flipper that I use on my other tanks. I have found that the clean bar works just as well and no scratching.
