Saterday, oktober 16, 2021. #panoramareef - sump?
I wasn't sure whether i wanted a sump, because of the energy spills of moving large volumes of water up all the time.
First i planned to use 2-3 surface skimmers, but each have moving part in full light, which would require extra maintenance. I had some glas lying around, so just to be save i decided to build a sump anyway.
Because the stand was already build, filled and operational, it was not possible to place a single sump required to hold enough water without removing a support beam.
So the sump was build in 2 pieces and put together on the spot.

Wednesday, oktober 20, 2021 #panoramareef- placing the sump.
The sump was placed between the support beams. A few days later (oktober 25) we made aditional saltwater in the sump to raise the waterlevel of the tank to be able to activate the sump.
The main reason for me to install the sump is the surface skimming and secondly i didn't want to extend and recalibrate the water intake of the KHD.

Tuesday, November 16, 2021, The #panoramareef is in the starting phase with all the up's and downs that goes with it. Now you have to be careful not to rush things .
I also went shopping at my main supplier of supplements[emoji16].
I feel Blessed to have a GHL Profilux4 and accompanying KHD running.
The KHD calculator has been adjusted for EZ2Go and is on testing phase.
After a false start where dinos and then algae got the upper hand, the light has been off for 3 days and 10 urchins have been added.
Patience is a virtue. The photos speak for themselves.

This is a movie of the panoramareef about one month from the startup.
The GHL KHD take out a lot of time dailing in the system. Now it's realy running on cruise control with EZ2Go

Dit is een film van het panoramareef ongeveer een maand na de opstart.
De GHL KHD bespaar5 veel tijd met het inregelen van het systeem. Nu draait het echt op autopiloot met EZ2Go

Into the blue's
Unusually beautiful when illuminated differently.
We already know that green fluorescents....
A simple red gonio has blue tips and subtle golden edges.
A simple silver/blue montipora appears to glow green.
A normally dull acropora spatulata turns into a golden coral

The breakdown of the EZ550reef and the 140 liter experimental tank.
All lifestock was moved to the panoramareef and Treef.
I am done with numerous small tanks.....

Some corals went to the Treef.
This is a nostagic tank . This was me before the time i found out SPS was the real challenge.

Most of the corals went to the panoramareef section3, which was waiting for this move.

Lets see what it will look like in 3 weeks

Yesterday januari 14, 2022 i got these 2 cheatodon semilarvatus from a friend. After decenia of keeping coralivores in a reeftank he wanted a good home for them and change his focus to coral keeping.
I have always wanted these, but never really had the conditions and opportunity to get some nice speciments.
In return, he got the chance to pick out corals in my fragtank

These are all the system i have running now.
The total consumption of all tanks during daytime (15:30h) is about 4700watt
Average light period= 13hours
(2300+1050+1080+120+120)
The total water volume is ~ 6100 liters
I estimate all the tanks uses ~65KWh per day.

Today i moved the diningroom into the aquarium room.
No regrets at all. I enjoyed every single satéh i made in the fireplace and dining took twice the time it normally did.
