    Hi All, every body on holiday today :thumbup: , looks like it.

    Tank is going to be a Six foot with sump (all horibble looking stuff to go in the cabinet, protein skimmer etc), The lid will need to be customised slightly to allow for the metal halides. Rather spend the money upfront and the maintanance should stabalize. Will try put as much live rock in as possible and let it cycle for a month then maybe put a few little critters in, Just worried about algea, hopefully I will have thought of what wave maker to get and keep the flow strong. Not to sure whats going in the sump yet need to check up, from what I read with plenty live rock, not to much is needed down stairs.

    Also thinking how I am going to mix R/O water and the salt crystals for water changes and get the water into the tank. (Fresh water tanks are easy, use a hose pipe)

    Another concern is the power outages in our power abundant times, been reading up on that.

    It's still very early, wife says I need to sell my other hobbies before getting the new tank, try not spend anything I don't have, it is an interesting way to look at it.
