Finally thought I better start a new one!

Mrs surprised me with a new tank start of the year which ended up being a 2nd hand Aqua one regency 280.

Well as most know it came with a durso setup which ain’t quiet at all.

So I gutted the plumbing and went with a herbie overflow.

Remodified the sump to suit the herbie and plans to run a CO2 reactor!

Fast forward the fine tuning of the herbie overflow paired with a jebao 4000 and a very finicky ball valve I finally have a super silent system!!!!

Inside tank movement is done with the outlet from the Jebao 4000 running at bare minimum so about 1200 LPH AND A JEbao SLW 20

Light is a Fluval plant 3.0

Got the CO2 dialed in within first week! Got a kamoer pro x2 auto doser running 2hr aquarist apt fert 3 x 11ml a week.

And an upaqua smart ATO for the tops ups out of a 20ltr jerry can!

I miss tank journals and some of the stuff that used to go on here. A real shame that the brains trust decided Facebook was a better option… might be more traffic but if it’s just crap like EY and mixed peacock IDs for the Gumnuts then what’s the point?

Rant over…. For now.

That is a nice tank. I wish I could make a tank look that good :-(
Cardinals and harlequins look great in big numbers.

Thanks for the kind words! I’ve just got a heap of buce off a mate and an AR and some hygro sunset (not like I needed anything else)

Will let things settle for a month then I’ll add 10 more cardinals hopefully
