Thought I'd post some pics of my other tank. It's at eye-level on a wierd dividing wall, that has no purpose in the kitchen. The tank doesn't take up any space in the kitchen, not that I care as I'm a bachelor and don't really like kitchens. With a tank in it, it becomes a useable room again.

It's 150cm x 30cm wide x 35cm high.
Filtration is courtesey of a DSB and an algal scrubber.
For flow there are 2 Seio 820's
Lights: T5 2x 54w 8000k and 2 x 39w actinics

One of my favourite creatures chowing down on a star burger.

The colt is about 2.5 years old. I don't feed my corals. They do get some fish food and live brine once in a while. Not running a skimmer probably helps, but you shouldn't do this unless your tank is at least ayear old and you know exactly what the risks are. If you have to ask, you're not ready.
