    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    The tank is made out of 24mm starfire glass infront and on the sides.
    It has the black narrow overflow at the back(coast to coast)

    Circulation is provided by 2x Vortech MP60's(fantastic pumps!!!)

    To make waterchanges easy we have a drain installed on the tank, and then we have the mixing bin to mix up new saltwater.(waterchange of 500L takes 10min)

    The light is provided by a 80W x 12 dimmable Giesemann Matrix fitting.
    The lighting aswell as the whole system is controlled by a Profilux 3.

    Our new evaporative cooler will be installed on this system(it will be custom made).

    Idol Marine

    As the owner :) of this tank I can only thank Adriaan, Rob and Louis for great workmanship and excellent back up. Having kept freshwater and Koi for some 30 years I decided to venture into saltwater. The constant advice and backup from the guys at Idol has been nothing but fantastic, and has really made the transition almost seamless. At some stage I will post my own thread with the full intricacies of the system. I would also like to thank MASA and its members for all the forums, it's all been a wonderful journey so far. At this stage I have been a silent subscriber, learning as much as I can.
