    Hi Guys

    I have finally started my second tank - instead of goin bigger , Im goin smaller.
    The tank is an Idol Marine 750x750x400h . I am running a JNS SK5 and the pump has
    a 1500lt airdraw for the skimmer boffs. I started it with Korallin Zucht "Reefers Best Salt". Circulation is powered by 2x Vortech MP10wes and the Return pump is an
    Aquamedic OR3500. Heater is a 300w Jaeger/eheim.
    Lighting is a Vertex SR200 - 600mm.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys - I am planning a very minimalist Zoa/LPS/Softie dominated reef with a shoal of Purple fire gobies , yasha gobie and probably a bluedot jawfish aswell.

    Any ideas are welcome - Gonna try and make it look like a Zen Garden!

    Durleo - just be careful with the gobies and jaw-fish especially - they are known to go "carpet/tile surfing" - especially with your open top tank! :) (and "shallow tank") ;)
