    I agree with Leslie or alternatively look for a 2nd hand one but alwayse get the best equipment you can which can handle 2 to 3 x your system, this is for upgrades and heavy stocking etc.

    Martin, I think the Queen is a rebranded Jebo (no idea why anyone would bother)
    Take a picture and let us see and we can say for sure

    I agree with Les. Reeftek and Reef Octopus are great value for money. Lots of our members including me use it and are pleased with the result.
