Sunday, september 11, 2021 - moving the #butterflyreef
There was no enough space to build the #panoramareef tanksection2, so the butterflyreef needed to move.
All the electric wiring of the #DSRreef1200 was in the cabinet below, so that needed rewiring.
The tank was emptied down to 10cm, moved , refilled, replumbed and rewired to make it operational again.

Removed the wall unit to make room for a 120x100 pallet box that will serve as a temporary storage for coral and fish from the #EZ550HYB system. This is going out and in its place comes the old 1200litre tank which I will probably set up as a primary fish tank. The idea is to use less lighting than is normally required for a reef aquarium, so keeping this tank is not a big expense. I wonder how long I will be able to keep this up..

Wednesday, 15 September 2021 #Panoramareef - drilling 4 holes. Today the diamond glass drills finally arrived. I was waiting to be able to continue. First I had to make a drilling template from plywood and mount it in the right place. To allow fish to swim back and forth from section1 to section2, I made two 100mm holes to connect the aquariums. For this, I had to drill four 100mm holes in 10mm glass. It took me 2 hours because I was too careful. Once I got the hang of it, it was 10-15 minutes per hole.
After alignment, I drilled the end of section 2 flat on the table
The next step is to prepare the glass to seal section 2.

I’m looking forward to when you put the two tanks together. Do you think the fish will use the holes to pass from one to the other tank.
I am sure they will
I used a tube before between 2 tanks
