    I have one of these for anemones, good tank. the only down side is the skimmer, it works well but even at the lowest flow setting it fills the cup in about 3 days...more maintenance as you said. Decent lighting fair filter system and the deep sand bed at the back is handy, cheato and caulerpa algae growing well. The only thing you need to watch out for is heat, during summer time you will need a chiller.

    I thought caulerpa was a sign of high nitrates . If i leave mine for more than a week it takes over

    It's a great little tank.
    Had both the 37L and 102L.
    I regards to heat all I did was connect a strip of mini fans (laptop fans) on top.
    There is a door flap ontop for feeding. I open that and place fans over there. Works like a charm.
    Other trick is to put the back filter light on a timer. Only have it on at night.tgat helps.

    Other then that for what that tank offers its the business.
    @Aquaria-SA are pretty good at helping out if there are any issues with there products.

    hallo nemo84, it is also great in preventing high nitrates, by using caulerpa/chaeto in the refugium, I hardly have any hair algae also when I started my new tank a few months ago, I practically skipped algae bloom. Mine does not grow that fast, but I do trim from time to time...I have a few small pieces of hair algae that feeds my blenny and hermits, but it grows very slowly, I guess the algae in the refugium does the trick...

    I normally just rinse out the sponge once a week in old tank water which was replaced by a weekly water change of 10%. I do the same with the matrix to get rid of of dirt that got stuck.
