    Good morning all

    So I love my current system, a boyu tl550, BUT as it always goes, I am planning to expand into the 'larger' system. The plan is to keep it simple and keep my boyu as a reef tank. The larger one will start off as FOWLR.

    Has anyone had a tank this size? I love the dimensions and would love feedback on this particular size. Not finding much online at the moment.

    ANY feedback would be welcomes, past experience or no, what do you guys think?

    Cubes are awesome if you have the space. Just make it 70 high as you will have about 5cm sandbed and 5cm at the top where bracing is and to make sure fish dont jump out/water splashes out.

    Hmmm, that is a little too high, I want a ' shallow' tank. But I agree that cubes are awesome :thumbup: I might be persuaded to go 60 high, but that would need to be discussed, also, shallower waters = cheaper lighting.

    Thanks nemos, I am going to have a read through your thread now :)
