    Hi everyone

    After 12 odd months I am back in the hobby again

    Last December I had a tank crash that resulted in me losing the majority of my tank which led to me packing up.

    Now that I am into my first year of articles and having some free time I have decided to get back into the hobby

    I didn't sell any of my equipment which made setting up the new system feasible to do

    But let's get down to the details

    Tank: 70x70x45 with a corner overflow
    Sump: 60x60x30
    Skimmer: Reef octopus xs 160 with the red devil sp3 pump
    Return: Bubble Magus wp2000
    Top up: Saga unit
    Chiller: Hailea
    Lighting: Prestige gamma hybrid unit
    Flow pumps: 2 x Wp 25
    Doser: Marine magic

    The photos attached gives you an idea of the overall setup, the scape and the sump

    Friday will be three weeks of cycling the system

    I look forward sharing this tanks journey with you guys DSC_2095.JPG DSC_2100.JPG DSC_2111.JPG DSC_2113.JPG

    I think it depends at what firm and in which city you do your articles...

    The plan is to stock the majority of the tank with lps. I will then all one sps on the back rock to add height and a fixed focal point

    Are you running it differently to the old tank? Or still going to use the scrubber?
