This 1350 gallon reef aquarium owned by Peter Hyne is a beautiful system and well designed jumbo reef aquarium. Calling the system the “tank of the four masters” is a bit presumptuous, but in the end it doesn’t really matter. The tank is stunning and that is all what really counts. The 1350 gallon reef aquarium is well explained in the video but you can also keep reading for more system info.
The main display is L shaped and measures 8 feet long by 3 feet wide by 2.5 feet tall at the short length. The long end measures 16 feet long by 3 feet wide by 2.5 feet tall. This adds up to a volume of around 1350 gallons, or 5110 liters. Three MH/T5 Aqua Medic units and sixteen Orphek PR-156 units provide lighting for the system. Two Abyzz 420 on a Closed Loop serve as circulation. A 250 gallon sump contains three large size Skimz reactors containing GFO, carbon, and biopellets.
A Schuran Jetstream II skimmer infused with ozone from a Clearwater CD10/AD 1250 mg/hr ozone reactor provides the bulk of the filtration. Two set of mangrove planters lit by two StrayLight 290 watt plasma lamps along with a 50 gallon refugium serve as additional biological filtration. A Schuran Jetstream II Calcium reactor keeps up with the calcium demand. A Profilux 3 Elite plus keeps the system running and two Generac 17KW natural gas-powered generators serve as a backup in case of power outrages. A 150 gallon QT system, and 150 hospital tank are used to QT and treat fish. Additional information can be found at their website.
