    Hey MASA members,

    I've been hanging around the site for quite some time, and decided it's time to join.

    I've had fish tanks since I could remember, and currently have a 1m marine tank. Not much to look at at the moment, but it will be replaced soon :)

    I am planning on building a 1500 x 600 x 650(h) 12mm tank in the near future.

    This one might end up being the sump :)

    Thanks for the welcome everyone :)

    The current setup:
    Tank 100x40x50(h) +/- 200L
    1 x 400L Canister filter (bio)
    1 x Internal filter (particle only)
    1 x Nano Cube protein skimmer (in tank)
    1 x 5000L/h SunSun
    1 x 12000L/h SunSun (one propeller removed) +/- 6000L/h
    1 x 150w Jager Eheim Heater - set to 25C
    1 x Odyssea T5HO with 4 x 39W 2 x 10000k 2 x Actinic

    The tank has no holes or overflow, hence no sump... I am thinking about drilling 2 x holes in the rear plane to add an overflow and return for a sump.

    Fish
    1 x Yellow Tang
    1 x Picasso Trigger
    1 x Bicolor Angel
    1 x Onespot Damsel
    1 x Boxing shrimp
    4 x Hermits

    Some pictures of the Corals etc

    Welcome :) .. Yeah get your big tank soon as the tang requires lots of swimming space :) ... and a sump is always good, worth drilling the tank
