    Hi Guys and Ladies

    I'm on this forum for some time now and never posted any pics of my reef.
    Reason for this there are some awsome tanks on here that make me shy to post anything. But anyway here we go. I added a new sump that host all skimmers and reactors.
    The tank has been running for a 1 1/2 now

    Tank size : 918L x 605W x 520 water level
    Two sumps
    Number one : 800L x 450W x 400H
    Number two : 918L x 605W x 300H
    Running ATS
    2 x 45w Energy Saver
    1 x 25w Energy Saver
    Lights : 150w Metal Halide 14000K (Reeftek)
    4 T5 39W
    DSB : Yes
    Pumps : For water flow in DT
    2 x 5000 Sunsun
    2 x 3000 Sunsun
    Return : 3500l/h Dophin
    Ok but enough chatting here's some pics
