[eng] This reef system was set up as the main display in my store Greenwich Aquaria. The original philosophy behind the tank was to keep it very simple. I’m not much of a gadget person, so I didn’t want any controllers or reactors etc. The concept behind the rockwork (in my opinion, the single most important factor in determining the aesthetic of an aquarium) was to create several coral bommies, which allows for interesting and more natural coral placement, and consequently more natural growth. I also wanted garden eels, hence the deep sand bed. [/eng] 这个珊瑚缸就在我的威林威治水族店里面,设缸的方向主要是少用复杂的方法和器材,一切从简。我是不一个喜欢捣弄器材的人,所以我不想用一堆的控制器和反应器 造景的理念是营造出一个多种珊瑚并存生成的水景,就像海里的珊瑚水域,并且让珊瑚自然而然的附在石头上,让珊瑚展示出生机勃勃的样子,此外我还喜欢饲养海鳗,所以我用了厚底沙层 [eng] Aquarium: The tank is a custom build by Aquarium Designs and is made of 1 1/4” thick acrylic. The dimensions are 6’6” x 48” x 36” tall with a total volume of 580 g. External overflows are built into either side. Circulation: The return pumps, are 2 Blueline 100’s plumbed into the sump in the basement below the tank. There is also a Blueline 100 on a closed loop All returns run through a total of 6 Wavy Seas Wavemakers. Filtration: Skimming is provided by a Precision Marine Bullet XL3 run by a Sequence Hammerhead. For chemical filtration I run Pura Complete in a Precision Marine media reactor and once a month I put carbon in one of the micron socks for a day. [/eng] 鱼缸 Aquarium Designs做的1.25寸厚的压克力鱼缸,大小为 225cm x 120cm x 100cm高,总水量 2320L, 外置溢流槽 循环 两个 BlueLine 100的上水泵,由底缸抽水,还有一个BlueLine 100用在内循环 (Picture from http://www.championlighting.com/home.php?cat=485) 6个Wavy Seas Wavemaker造浪器 (Picture from http://www.jlaquatics.com) 过滤 Precision Marine Bullet XL3化蛋器用ReeFLO泵去推,我还用Precision Marine Reactor反应器,里面放Pura Complete,每一隔一个月,使用一次丝袜活性炭一天 (Picture from http://www.aquacave.com) Precision Marine Bullet XL3 (Picture from https://diyreef.authsecure.com) Sequence Hammerhead (Picture from http://www.marinedepot.com) Precision Marine Reactor (Picture from https://www.marinedepot.com) Pura Complete [eng] Biological filtration consists of approximately 400 lbs. of XL Tonga Live Rock and a 4-6’ sandbed. Lighting: 6 400 w Radium on PFO HQI ballasts and 6 48 VHO actinics on PFO ballasts Husbandry: A Reefdosing Pump doses 500ml ESV B-Ionic daily and 200 gallon water changes are done weekly with Coralife sea salt. [/eng] 生物过滤包括  400磅(181.8公斤)特大形汤加活石,4~6寸(10.5cm~15cm)沙床 光照 6 x 400W Radium卤素灯,PFO振流器, 6 x 48W VHO,也是用PFO振流器 (Picture from www.seaquestmarine.com) PFO 振流器 维护 每天滴定500ml ESV B-Ionic 钙水, 每周换800L水,用的是Coralife珊瑚盐 (Picture from http://akamai.f3images.com) ESV B-Ionic 钙水 (Picture from http://www.drsfostersmith.comCoralife珊瑚盐 [eng] I also dose Elos Omega amino acids and once in a while I’ll dose iodine, and once every two months or so, I’ll do a water change with Tropic Marin salt-- No real theory behind that one, I just have a feeling that it’s beneficial. The above is able to reliably maintain the water chemistry at the following levels:

  • SG 1.027-1.028
  • PO4 around 0.01 ppm
  • NO3 around 5 ppm
  • Calcium around 450 ppm
  • Alkalinity around 9 dKH
[/eng] 我还滴定Elos Omega armino acids珊瑚粮,每两个月,我还会滴定碘,我打算转用TM盐,没有什么理论在里面,只是心理感觉好一点 下面是一些指标 盐度 1.027~1.028 PO4  0.01ppm NO3  5ppm Ca 450ppm KH 9 (Picture from http://www.marineaquariumsa.com) Elos Omega armino acids [eng] Inhabitants: The animals in this system are numerous and varied but SPS corals like Acropora species (about 50), Montipora and the like predominate. There are a few assorted LPS corals including Gonipora, Echinophyllia, and various Corallimorphs, Clavularia, and Zoanthids though these are rather limited due to the culinary inclinations of a regal angel (Pygoplites diacanthus) and multibanded angel (Paracentropyge multifasciata). [/eng] 生物 这个系统的生物大多了,不同品种的SPS约有50多个,角珊瑚和瓦片为主, 还有各种LPS,如宝石花, 瓦片脑,菇菇, 星花草皮,纽扣, [eng] The fish population is a somewhat eclectic mix. In addition to the aforementioned angels, there is a large clown tang (Acanthurus lineatus), a coradion butterfly (Coradion chrysozonus) and a marginalis butterfly (Chelmon marginalis), a pair of Harlequin filefish (Oxymonacanthus longirostris), around 20 garden eels (Taenioconger hassi), different pipefish (Corythoichthys haematopterus, Doryrhamphus janssi, Dunckerocampus pessuliferus), clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris and Amphiprion perideraion), and a variety of anthias, cardinalfishes and assorted blennies and gobies. [/eng] 缸里的鱼是大混养,除了之前提到的天使,波纹吊,火箭,尖吻鲀, 花园鳗, 尖嘴鱼(蛇仔鱼),小丑,宝石, 巴厘天使,古B,青蛙 [eng] Perhaps my favorite inhabitant is my gloriously healthy Heteractis magnifica anemone a gift from my friend Joe Peck whose own specimen split affording me the opportunity to try my hand at keeping this fantastic animal. [/eng] 我最喜欢的生物是公主海葵,是我朋友Joe Peck剪开分给我的,谢谢他给我这么一个机会能让我饲养这么迷人的生物 (Picture from http://www.reefsmagazine.com/jason_edward_interview.html) 鱼店图片
