    Welcome Vernon.

    We have some nice features here which you will find links to on our home page, like Featured Systems (new), Calculators, Members photo gallery, and our all exclusive Reef Hunters.

    Look forward to hearing about your tank (if you have one) and some pics :)

    At the beggining of 2005 my passion for marines started when I worked for a LFS. Got a 5 ft Fish only. Like everyone soon moved to reef! Now just recently I scrapped my 5ft, busy building a cube 600mmx600mmx600mm. As soon as my cube is up and running I will definantly be opening thread for all the pic Ho's!!
    Thanks for the warm WELCOME!!!

    Thanks, but it's easier said than done when your sump is square... Im only going to build it once I know for shure that the water will be exposed to a DSB as long as possible!!

    Could you put the first baffle, diagonally in one corner, then you would have more volume across the centre of the tank. sorry can't draw it, but i hope it makes sence.

    That's a good idea Wee-Man, a diagonal baffle in each opposite corner with the DSB in the middle and possibly an external skimmer.
