    Thanks for sharing the pictures @Blue Reefer, we will be following your build closely !

    Tank dimensions 1500x600x600 and already looking stunning.

    Lighting cost R8375.00 being fully wireless controllable :)

    Yes, this tank is 60cm deep and the units are mounted almost 30cm above, gives you an idea of the penetration.

    @Visser Tank is 1.5 x 0.7 x 0.6 deep. The sump is 1.2 x 0.6 x 0.4 deep with with water level at 240mm. I like to keep things as simple and uncomplicated as possible. Inside the tank got two Sicci V7 pumps on a waversurfer to control flow. Got a Vertex universal media reactor to run carbon in it or seagel. Protein skimmer is a BB 5000INT. Will be dosing with a marine magic doser. Return pump is a Diablo 10500 which also feeds reactor but got plenty of power if needed only running it at 50% power. Lastly but not least the Pharos lights I cant be more impressed ie price, build quality light intensity and functions. Thanks to Andre for a great product.
