    Time for me to start my tank thread. Its already about 2 years old, but took it very slowly. I will start with a picture of my "engine room". Runnig my system from an industrial PLC, with a proper distribution board and relays driven from the PLC.

    Next an interesting pic I took this afternoon. Was hunting for Aptisia , with all pumps switched off. Took this pic looking up into the DT from the floor.

    Looking good so far, your reef looks like it's got some nice flat pieces of rock. More pics please ;)

    Yes - was a struggle at first but you can basically control anything, either on a time basis or based on any other input signal

    Will do thanks Adrian

    Jep, love the ledges and overhangs they create. I am forever sniffing around for nice flat rocks!
