    Dunno if I would be balancing my electrics like that on the sump.. and a very brave move with the stilts going directly onto tiles with such a large water volume ! other than that I like the LR and the aquascaping looks good !

    hehe, the electricity has been changed, no worries! Cabinet is due anytime now, so that will neated it all up! as for the stand on the tiles, im glad i did that. twice ive had my skimmer flood already, and luckly i dnt have a piece of wood under my stand liek my old tank, otherwise i wudnt have been able to clean it all up nicely with a mop, so there are always pro's and con's :p

    And for the wreck, that is long out already :) i know how reefers love the wreck :p

    Atm its only 1 light unit, still ordering another one of the same kind! Its 3x 150W 14000k BLV Halides, 2x Actnic T5's and 4x LED Moonlights

    so when im doen ill have 2 of those. I was considering rather going the 250W route, but there no nice light units available at a reasonable price.

    well the water, is just over a year old. Livestock is varied, most peices are from my old setup, some are new, same with fish. But the system as is, is about a month old.

    Was abit pressed with time, so had to shove the livestock in there.
