Mike

they will follow soon mate :good:

there currently being water tested for leak before they go in the cabinet.

im feeding the sump via a tunze overflow into sump 1. in that sump will be a mechanical filter sock,my mce600 skimmer and a FR509 deltec phos reactor,this has a 2" flow pipe to sump 2 in the other cabinet

sump 2 will have a DSB,cheato etc etc(aint decided yet),heater and a eheim compact 2000 returning it back to the tank.

How much live rock have you got Mark?

Looking at your tank and the great lighting is making me want to put my hand in my pocket and buy those extra lights

hi seffie

i have about 45-50kg in there,that is a guess,but its definatly over 40kg ( i have about 40kg left im trying to sell,lol)

in the piccys the tank has only 1 juwel bar on it (2 marine whites) the other bar (2 blues) is going on when i can move the skimmer down to the sump :good:

i dont realy like the koralia powerhead where it is (top left) but i get a good allround flow around the tank with it where it is. I am selling it though to buy a smaller tunze,that has the same flow rate.

The live rock you have looks more like reef bones and not so live :S

Looks good...are you going to stack any higher?

why do you say that? Please explain your reason please

All the rock in this tank came from IMO the best lfs in the uk. It was in there vat for 8 weeks, mine for a further 4, then into the main tank. Must be pretty live as I have had no spike in anything in all the time it's been in there. I even bought new tests as I didn't belive it myself.

I still have some rock left, stu has 1st dibs on what he wants
