    My oldest son started his 30 liter tank today. He is only 11jr old and he collected old stuff from his grandpa's house. The skimmer and heater and mini power heads all were part of grandpa's tank 20jr ago. now he told me he want a led unit for his tank. I built him a stand and sump (all his own design). So lets see how this work out for him. Will post some photos later.

    Tank dimensions in mm 461x230x310. The power head no name rated 600lph 1.5m, skimmer unknown but uses a air stone and air for return, aqua pro 15 150watt heater and another unknown 350lph mini power head in tank for flow. We will add live rock in about a weeks time and we still looking for a LED unit. Sump is 460x225x180 with 3 chambers 1=skimmer and intake, 2= ref +sand bed with LR, 3= atu + return. So that is about that for now.
