    Hi again , thanks to all the kind people , learned quite a lot the last few days . Here is my tank , empty about 180l . As im new I started with a canister as a filter , HOB skimmer and wave makers . I have in the tank a total of 13.3kg live rock and 1 bag aragonite sandbed . I started with a Bicolour blenny , he is doing great , a mushroom and some zenia , seeing a lot of stuff going on in the tank in regards to live . Special thanks to Ryan from George for assisting with a trip to Cape Town and Mark also from George for all the help starting the tank . Still a lot to learn but here it is :blush:

    Nice looking tank. Like the scaping, leaves alot of swimming space in the front and a decent area for corals.
