    I decided to share a pic of my tank , not that theres really much to look at .
    Its a very simple setup with none of the bells and whistles on most of the other setups .
    Tank - 1.2m*450*550
    Sump - 90*33*33
    Lights - 4 54w t5`s ,2 white 2 blue
    Flow - seio M1100 (won on this site)
    seio M620
    Astro 2000l/h
    Skimmer - Berlin Classic with Aquamedic Multi sl pump
    Return - Astro 3500l/h
    DSB - 10cm fine aragonite
    Livestock - 30kg`s liverock, various softies ,4 hermits ,10 snails
    Fish - sailfin,midas,niger,clown,talboti damsel

    I run carb and Phos in sump 24/7 - 365
    10% water change /week
    Alternate calcium and KH buffer daily with RO topup water .
    Dose strontium and Iodine twice weekly.
    i really love the tank coz its whisper quiet and very simple to maintain ,.
    Im lucky as i havnt had any real problems like algae and parasites etc.(touch wood)

    Looks pretty good so far... Is that really 30Kg's live rock or is there a lot in the sump?

    PS: Love the seio M1100 ;)
