    Hi All,

    1500L x 630W x 400 H

    Sump:
    1200L x 100H x 100W

    A warm welcome to a fellow reefer.

    You mention that you have been doing marines for a while. How long has the tank been running. Nice size tank and I love the shallow reefs. Are you going SPS. Tell us about the rest of the equipment. Lighting etc.
    Excuse all the questions, but I would love to hear your ideas with this beauty and see this shallow reef develop!
    And off course... more pics will do no harm...;)

    Hi @bollie thank you. I have been in the hobby for over 5 years, with all it's good and bad. And I am eventually in the good now:)

    Hi @Helga Yes for over 5 years now, not all good however. The pictures of my tank is a new tank that I purchased as my old one was a little worse for wear, so everything was transferred over from the old tank, to the new one. I have just started venturing into SPS now and I have a good friend guiding me along the way...... Have mainly only ever kept fish and the odd nennie.So will be taking things slow for now as I have a tendency to rush into things especially in this hobby, and I've learnt the hard way more than once.....:(

    As far as my equipment goes I am running the following:

    Lighting:
    2x Reeftek 10000k T5’s Antic Blue
    2x Reeftek 10000k T5’s Coral Blue
    4x Reeftek 10000k T5’s White

    Equipment:
    Ts2 Skimmer
    2x JVP-102B Sun Sun wave makers
    1x JVP-101B Sun Sun Wave maker
    1x Seio Wave maker
    1x Resuin 3500l/ph. return pump
    1x UV Sterilizer
    2x Jager heaters


    I was running 2x Metal Halides as well but have recently removed these. I will take some more pictures tonight and post tomorrow.
