    One question though 1.8 x 1.8 x 900 ? I am almost 2m tall and would struggle to scape or remove anything near the centre of that, how are you gonna do it?

    wow thats a big cube, are you sure you will be able to easily reach all parts of the tank? else you will need to set the rock work up carefully to beginn with and make sure its very stable.

    looking forward to updates on this tank

    Can always do the scaping as 2 reefs facing each other with a valley in between. The display at Dorry pets is like that. Being that wide, then the rock will be under the lights.


    Anyway, sounds like a nice tank.
