    I agree with Tremayn and theres nothing wrong with the i phone pics - I think. I would love to see the sump and the hardware in it.

    thanks guys.

    will take some pics of the skimmer etc, but its a Red Sea tank, so its basically the standard hardware that came with it.

    These are the standard specs and attached a diagram off the rsm website:

    1. Adjustable height surface skimmer
    2. Mechanical filter sponge
    3. Professional turbo protein skimmer driven by a 1200 lph pump
    4. Compartment for chiller pump
    5. Accessory Kit for chiller inlet/outlet tubes
    6. Thermostat - controlled heater
    7. Highly porous ceramic biological filter media
    8. Activated carbon chemical media
    9. Twin circulation pumps with adjustable direction outlets
    10. Water cooling fan


    Been having alot of power cuts this week, so i added a 2000VA Digital UPS. Only issue is someone needs to switch off the lights, skimmer and heater when the power cuts. This way the ups powers the 2 jets/heads for about 3 to 4 hours. Im from an IT background, so looking at getting around this with possibly adding a second UPS to the setup.

    So far have been lucky, im in the westville/reservoir hills area of Durban, so we havent started with load shedding yet, but if it does, i may need to invest in something that can power the unit for at least 8 hours.
