    Hi guys the Skimmer tank is finally up and running...it has been standing in the shop for about 9 months without any progress.

    Finally Yuri helped me sort it out quickly.

    Tank: reef octopus skimmer 120liter in total including the sump
    Return pump is 1200l/h
    light: x2 rio led light fittings adding one more later this week

    about 7kg Live Rock
    Figi pink substrate

    Skimmer: boyu:lol:...but the tunze skimmer will be fitted later this week

    Will be keeping Macro algae and seahorses:thumbup:

    And here is the pictures for you:

    They should have put the lighting in a skimmer cup and hide it there - other than that looks awesome - great advertising!

    Nice one Lanzo. Everytime i'm at your shop i see that skimmer just lying there.

    How abouts sending that to reef octopus once you fully setup as a marketing pitch!!!
