    Right, so after months of planning and dreaming of my new tank, the time has almost come to set it up! having followed the forum for the last few months, and learning that things shouldn't be rushed, i decided to take my time and make sure i had everything before i set up, (and the fact i live on a game reserve which means i dont have easy access to a LFS!) My tank is now the last of the items i am waiting for, should be finished this week!

    Equipment and dimensions:

    tank: 900x550x550mm
    sump: 900x320x400mm

    lighting: 2 x dual 39w light units
    2 x 150w MH with 14000k globes

    Skimmer: TS1 (will upgrade later on)

    Chiller: rated up to 300l (need this as it gets rather warm in the summer!)

    and ya, all the test kits, ro unit etc is all here too!

    Will keep you guys posted on the setup! Let me know your thoughts!
