    Hi Guys,

    I have reading and taking tips on this site for over two years now, had two systems crash in between and came close ro giving up this fantastic hobby. (Thanks Les for stopping me....)
    Although I am not a professional by any means my tank comes from the school of hard knocks.( I have now alleviated that problem by giving my tank its own generator). And I have tried and tested all that is out there, and some of the members have the most amazing tanks out there and I read everything out there...and I have taken the advice and it has worked. So time to reveal not the best but my 3rd start up..... and all comments are welcome.

    Welcome...lol be it 2 years later :p

    System sounds good...are u running a CLS with all those return pumps? Am keen to see the pics as well :D

    Ps. only negative I can say from the above is that skimmer definately is too small for that tank, so maybe something to aim towards in the future? ;)
