Introduction

Hobbyists Hi!

My aquarium "Spångarevet" is a 135 gallon system. I have a small sump which give that most of the water is in the display.

The name is the name "Spångarevet" is the name og the place in Stockholm where I live reef + Spånga is outside Stockholm, Sweden. so Spångareef.

This is my third saltwater aquarium I have previously had RedSea max 130 and 250 which I learned a lot. The upgrade to what I have today I did when me and my partner moved to our current apartment.

as i said, it is a 135 gallons with a big bunch of fish. My goal is to be holding a large variety of both fish and corals which I hope will succeed some day :), it tends to be much SPS in terms of corals and surgeons in the fishway. I do need to cut down on the Fish side to give the ones i want to keep more space.

Sump consists of two compartments with a bubble trap between. In the first compartment is a skimmer Nyos quaantum 220 which is quite oversized for this system, but it allows me to easily keep nitrate at more or less 0. compartment 2 is 5 liters of Siporax and return pump. so therefore a very simple system.

I dose bacteria from time to time and from some different varieties, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I also run Fauna Marin Balling method, which works well so far.

thanks for looking

Sincerely
Peter
