    Hi all,

    Just a general question really.

    We just recently purchased the aquaria 1500 and i was wondering why there's nothing about the brand aquaria on the net. We actually started off with the aquaria magic wave 37 last year which also has VERY limited info on the net.

    The aquaria 1500, is our first tank with a sump. So it would've been nice to read some info about it, but alas, nothing...

    Is aquaria known as something else around the world or something?

    They are awesome tanks and I am extremely happy with mine. I have the 1M . But as you say, theres not much information around about them on the net. Lawrence is very helpful and the service is something to write home about but , It would be nice to see some other Aquaria Setups . Sump layouts, ideal skimmer height, just little tricks on how to run an awesome aqauria setup.

    Would be great if Lawrence can maybe upload a few pics of their other builds, engine rooms etc. Just so we can steal a few ideas.:whistling: @Aquaria-SA .

    The little nanos are the weipro magic waves.
    Not too sure if the medium to large are also the same.

    @Charl_Stanhope Thats a nice tank :)

    We've been in contact with Lawrence, but sometimes its nice not to have to "bother" someone as much i tend to, especially when it comes to information. :eek:

    but yes, it would be really nice to see other ppl's setups, including the sump :whistling:, you know, for ideas and stuff :D even just to confirm that everything is where it should be.

    After seeing those pics, i SO want to get our thread started. Right now we're busy filling up the 130l bucket for the tank... it requires about 3 more buckets... :( cant go any faster.

    But we'll detail everything in the thread.

    Other than Lawrence, anyone with info on the aquaria, or owns one, feel free to post :) :1: share!

    Cool thank you for sharing! :thumbup:

    I really like the height of the tank. You can go really high with the LR structures.
    Bet its a pain to work in the bottom back of the tank when its 800 high :p.

    Can you PM me what this set you back please.

    Charl your tank looks fantastic! My next tank will be the Aquaria 2M. I really miss the look of the Aquaria.

    @Handy... in a word.. WOW!

    my fiance is going to go on a fish shopping spree after seeing what you put in that 3m. Most of those fish, he's wanted from day 1.
    @Lawrence, thank you for all the help so far.
    Would you mind posting the following information for the 1.5m : (or anyone else who knows):
    Tank liter capacity:
    Sump liter capacity:
    Liters/hour rate of the return pump:

    thanks
