    Hi

    So comes time to move out of the shadows and start my first thread.

    I have recently had a 600x600x600 tank build by one of the local non-sponsor. All and all it has been a good experience and I am very happy with the results.

    Tank is filled, live rock is in and I'm waiting for the cycle to go its course ;)

    You should have gotten a bigger box since you will pour huge amounts of money into it over time. Not sure if the 600 cube will be big enough :)

    For now the 600 cube should be enough, my previous tank was a Boyu TL450. :)

    Nice money box you have there. I am sure you will have years of making healthy deposits into it.

    Hi and welcome to MASA.
    We got the exact same tank, dimensions and all. lol
    What do you think of it so far?
    And do you have any close ups of the overflow?

    Welcome, very nice looking tank will defiantly be following this one. And don't feel alone I've got a new money box as well. Only problem is the freaking thing only seems to take R200 notes by the bucket load

    Thank you everybody for the warm welcome's.
    @2balive The tank is +-200l, I have a small sump just housing all the equipment below and then a little Auto topup reservoir.
    @Keanan So far I love the tank! Don't know if you also got your tank from Zane, but if so overflow should be the same, will post a couple of pics later.
