    Hey all,

    So my tank has been cycling for two weeks now, and so far everything is going well and I'm very happy with my Infinity Aqua..

    The tank looks great in my place and I'm very impressed with the build quality :)

    Ammonia: 0
    Nitrite: 0.3 (so not ready for livestock yet...)
    Nitrate: 0.5
    SG: 1.024
    Temp: 27C

    Unboxing..

    Cabinet was relatively easy to assemble..

    I really like the lights as the intensity can be adjusted, it has white, blue and moonlight all on separate power..

    [​IMG]

    There are two media baskets, one on each side at the overflows. Currently housing filter sponges, ceramics and carbon.. I like that I can take this out to get easy access to any filter media I may want to put in there..

    Sump and skimmer. Skimmer seems to be working well, although no bio load at the moment so not skimming much, but definitely doing a good job at oxygenating the water. The skimmer didn't seem to be producing bubbles at first, but I found the breather adjuster was blocked (probably from manufacturing..) but it was easily unblocked..

    I was chuffed I could fit a 25L drum as my RO auto top off..

    You also get a media reactor with the system, which I will install with denitrification media once the tank is cycled and showing higher nitrates.

    It also comes with what they call an anti-jump screen (mesh like screen so your fish can't jump out), which I'm not using as I hope my fish won't wan't to jump out of the tank.. :) I also find the light doesn't fit perfectly on top of this screen and it can become a little bit of a hassle to feed as the light and screen would need to be lifted to get to the water. Maybe a little feeding "door" would be a good idea ;) I also wonder if this screen reduces the lights' effectiveness..

    Anyways, thats my new tank and I can't wait to give my current livestock a bigger home (currently in my 30L pico tank..)

    - 2 black percula clowns
    - fire shrimp
    - blue legged hermit grab

    Thanks David!

    I plan to add to the CUC, some more hermits, some snails, an urchin and maybe a starfish.

    I'm still a bit undecided on which fish to add considering the size of the tank, thinking of:
    - royal gramma / purple gramma
    - wrasse; maybe a six line wrasse (they're so active..)
    - firefish
    - a nice goby
    - maybe a blenny / mandarin

    And when the tank is mature enough I would like to add some LPS corals and Zoas..

    Any suggestions would be great... :)

    Btw; your tank is looking awesome!

    Maybe:

    Flasher wrasse
    Bangaii cardinals x2
    Firefish
    Royal gramma/black cap basslet/gold assessor basslet
    Nice goby

    Maybe a mandarin when your tank is ready.

    I know this is off topic but are you going to be selling the light from your 30l?

    Cool, thanks for those suggestions Taahir!

    I'd preferably like to sell the whole system once the livestock is moved over..

    Update:

    Ammonia and Nitrite levels are now zero, so cycle done and I could move my livestock from my Pico tank to this one, the Clowns look very happy in their bigger home, and my hermit is doing a good job with the brown algae :)

    For now Nitrate levels are at 15, planning to bring that down with de-nitrification media in a reactor..

    I also added an Aqua Medic Ecodrift 8.0 wavemaker which I'm very happy with..

    looks good, nice and clean, my phone/camera seems to do as yours does with the blue light.

    @Dre sorry for late response..
    The tank is doing well, I haven't done much besides adding a red-legged hermit and a couple of turbo snails that have cleaned up the brown algae nicely.. I also added a reactor with bio-pellets, so have let that run for a while..

    Planning to add a couple more fish soon based on previous suggestions..

    I'm not sure what the make of the RO top-off system is; I got it from Yuppie Pets, it's nice because it has two sensors, one for low mark and other high water mark, and if one fails it won't over fill.
    @zippy thanks! Ye I don't know how to avoid the pictures coming out like that..
    @reef addict; it's a 120l but with the substrate, rocks and equipment it seemed to take around 100l
