    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.

    really awesome man, super neat an clean look. just one thing though you should clean up that rust and paint the stand before it starts getting bad.

    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") ;)
