    Hi guys

    So I thought I would start my tank thread, after finally getting through the dreadful cycling period
    so here goes:
    Dimensions
    Dt: 910 x 320 x 500 with corner overflow (450)
    Sump: 910 x 320 x 350
    Substrate:
    - Fiji pink Arragonite
    filtration:
    - Live rock mixed with matrix.
    - Reef octopus reactor with Np biopellets.
    - No skimmer yet, but will be getting a ts1 shortly.
    - Just over 12kgs liverock in the DT (mixed Kenyan and Tonga)
    Lighting:
    - Quad odyssea ( 4 x 39W T5)
    Livestock:
    - 3 x Turbo snails
    - jumbo crab
    - Pulsing xenia
    - Polyp rock
    - fox coral

    The tanks been running just over 7 weeks now, I tested everything a few days back:
    No2 - 0
    No3 - 0
    SG - 1.025
    Po4 is high - around 1 ppm. Hopefully the pellets will help reduce it.

    Unfortunatley im moving houses in a week so I wont be adding anything more until the move is over and everything is settled.

    Feel free to comment:thumbup:
