    My daughter is now the proud owner of a Jebo R338.. this tank was given to her by @Viskop ,and in return @Zombie_CT gave him a tank aswell (god bless there generosity)... thanks again guys:thumbup:

    as you all know ,its about a 40 litre little tank.it has a built in filter in canopy in which i will run carbon and purigen and bit of filter wool just to keep clarity up.lights are standard and decently bright but guess what :tt2: @Viskop did an awesum blue led upgrade and man does it look amazing.He also added 2 pc fans which without a doubt will keep temps at bay

    @Zombie_CT generously gave m 2 beautifull pieces of rock which just about completes the open but awesum look i was aiming at.this tank will host couple of small frags of zoas and softies but main attraction will be 2 true percular clowns (smallest i can find), small cuc and maybe a smallish shrimp or 2 ......

    fts with lights on,check how bright they are

    this tank will run on regular 10-20% water change basis pending on water parameters are and how long it stays that way.carbon will be swopped out every 2 week and purigen every 2 months , so fingers crossed this tank turns out what i'm aiming at as it will be a little feature in my daughters room

    Asume.

    Weird, my first salt water excursion was with one of these to get a Nemo for my son.

    Had hours of fun with it, got me completely hooked.

    I am glad you like. It was nice meeting you guys today - although hearing you two talk just made me realise that I know nothing yet. Congrats on your daughters' coming birthday by the way.

    Thanks once again to Zombie_ct for your unbelievable generosity. I'll start snapping away for a future thread.

    Well looks like a good start for the young lady, and the scaping looks good like that too.
    When I sort out some frag I will post it for all to shout for.
