    Its actually working very well. Only issue i had was the standard 4 x 54watt T5 tubes weren't enough. Had to add another bank of 4 tubes as its quite deep.

    The controller works very well. Already wishing i went for the 2 meter.

    Hey shane, looking good. sure it looks way better now :)

    we've also got the same tank.

    do you know what the cabinet is made from? wood? steel? something else?

    have you made any mods to your sump?

    Cabinet

    Hi

    Cabinet is wood wrapped in acrylic. Stops the wood from getting wet. Did you leave the standard 4 tubes or did you add more?

    Ive left the sump as is but added reactors.

    we got ours 2nd hand. also, coming from a RSM 130D we kind of preferred all-in-one setups then. :)

    its still nice and all, i just worry that the wood isnt strong enough to handle the weight of the tank and the canopy, but so far, its all good. (touch wood - no pun intended).

    we replaced the tubes with 3x radions. still working on corals.

    :D
