    Hi there
    if you can add this to a previous thread that would be cool, i saw one the other day but just cant find it.
    So after a horrible collapse last yr i saved(well my wife did) as addicted as i to the hobby. We kept a little 12 Lt and it thrived.
    So we got this little bigger upgrade, ill post some pics so far. This is 7 months down the line.

    Thanks, had a bit of a struggle with this in the begining. The tank gets very hot in summer. I also changed the skimmer cup - had a different one lying around and fitted instead, now i get awesome skimmate. AquariaSA should possibly look at the one i have.

    Sorry to hear about that. I am thinking of getting the 102 as I had the small tank. I found I could not keep parameters stable in the tank

    im using biocubes, matrix and a different skimmer cup - i also use filter wool and clarity. So far my paramaters are good, probably a bit to clean
