    Hi guys, new to marine and first time I have attempted a setup. Quite proud of the outcome so please lemme know what you think. here are some specs before the pics :

    Lighting : 8 x T5 (reeftek)plus 12 x Blue LED.
    Sump : 4 Chambers - TS3 Reeftek skimmer, Phosphate reactor, DSB (aragalive) , Liverock chamber, ceramic rings, Sicce return pump.
    Wave Makers - 2 x Seio 120's (remote controlled)
    Liverock - Blue Heliopora Liverock and coral skeleton
    heating : 2 x 300 watt heaters.

    Pics were taken before livestock was added so I will be sure to upload pics of the tank with livestock when I get some time.

    Thanks guys.

    system is running now for 2 months now, cycled nicely. added nitrobac to begin bacteria build-up in the initial stages. everything has settled nicely, ammonia reading is 0, phosphates 0, ph 8.4, salinity 1.023. there are still some nitrates present but im working on my macro algae and algae scrubber.

    stock list is currently small. Clown, zebra barred dart, jumping bean, Powder brown tang and regal tang.

    looks good...

    Just one thing, the tank does not look level...As I can see the water touching the top braces of the tank...

    or it could be that the overflow was made too high?

    other then that looking good so far..
