The grey bin in the middle (sitting on it is a refugium with 20 lbs of Miracle Mud) is used as a common reservoir sump (in which we grow soft corals) for the 95 gallons saltwater planted tank to the left, the 150 gallons surge and tide pool tank in the middle and the 400 gallons marine fish-only tank to the right. The total volume of this combined display aquariums is approximately 700 gallons. These display / experimental aquariums are very unique. Perhaps they exist the first time ever in our marine aquarium hobby / industry. More detail on these aquariums…later. To ensure the cleanliness of these aquatic environments, it is highly recommended to use RODI systems. You can find these systems at for maintaining optimal water quality.

If you would like to maintain your aquarium in good standing, clean and nice we recommend you to use a good filter, click here for info of a few options that might work for you.

But here are some facts:
1. EcoSystem Aquarium salt is used throughout our display / experimental aquariums;
2. Approximately 5 oz of EcoSystem calcium A, calcium B and calcium C base on the Balling Method is added to the system daily;
3. Weekly water change is approximately 4-5 gallons for this 700+ gallons system – siphoning the detritus from the bottom of the grey bin;
4. One UV40w is used; and
5. No protein skimmer is used.
