    So, I have decided to post some pics of my RSM 250. The tank has been running since December 2012.


    Thanks to everyone for your advice. Special thanks to Raynow for all his advice, support and guidance (real mentor).


    Any advice? Comments to improve? :whistling:

    Thanks @Bendor and @Evo R. Will check Zoa....

    It's a standard rsm 250. I have installed the following:

    Chiller
    ATO
    Reactor (pellets)
    T5's
    Filter compartment: orca cubes (bomb method), reactor, carbon, only 1 sponge (all others removed)
    Sun sun (I might remove this as the standard pumps and flow seems to be sufficient for my setup)

    Water parameters:

    Nitrate 0
    Phosphate 0.03
    Mag 1260
    Alk 8.3
    Calc 460
    Ph 8
    SG 1.024

    Maintenance:

    Skimmer: once per week
    WC: 20% once per month

    Tank looks very nice. As Bendor said, try get rid of those Aiptasia on the zoa's, it doesn't look like you have any elsewhere in your tank and these could infest your whole tank. :(
