    I'm not to sure if there is a thread about this? If so then please lead me to the thread.

    So, as the title says, if you start over, what will you change and why will you change that?

    I just think it will be nice for all the noobs to see all what you will change (especially the expert) if they can:thumbup:

    I should have gone wider: 700mm to 900mm.
    Also when putting in the first floor slab I should have cast a pipe into the concrete so I could place the sump in the basement.

    I would not buy a tank that is so deep as I cannot reach the bottom and placing corals is a nightmare.

    Make sure I have enough space between the LR and Glass, so that I can clean properly, and not battle with unsightly algae on glass cos I cant get there :-(
