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 ;)
