    Anything in particular? what do you fancy, how much room do you have, what is your budget - this figure is likely to be half the "Actual" cost of your system

    Bought a tank form AQUAH2O measuring 720 x 670 x 460 with sump filter, heater, protein skimmer, double light and pump. Got water from them as well as some live rock. Thats it so far.

    Ok sorry for sounding nosey but lets start here

    What Skimmer
    What lights
    What does the sump look like

    Any flow pumps in the tank itself

    What are you planning on keeping?
