    Hi All

    So I started a new tank - cause I have loads of time around the house....and will also use the setup as a frag grow out tank and maybe to quarantine new fish etc....

    As per the heading...it's a Boyu MT 30 (25liter) tank.

    Modds planned and already in progress.....

    1. Fit Boyu 308 skimmer in the back....relatively easy to do - just requires a recess to be cut at the back.
    2. Fit a modular surface skimmer. (red it also helps to control water levels at the back, for when addiing the skimmer.
    3. Fit one of those Hydor Rotating water deflectors...if I can find one locally....anyone know where I could get one?
    4. Remove the compact PL tube, and fit 12 LED's - 6 x 20 000k Whites and 6 x Royal Blues.

    First chmaber will house a small media tray for phosguard and purigen.
    Second chamber - skimmer and heater.
    Third chamber - return and later ATU.


    I would also just like to give a shout out...lol....to saaid for making this possible! If more people could be like him - the world would be a better place!

    Will post pics ASAP.:thumbup:

    Looks like a interesting little tank.
    I have one of those rotating deflectors and I don't use it because it always gets stuck.
    Mine was made by dymax.

    @Mc - i was worried about it getting stuck. However nobody seems to have....so will live without it for now.

    I have started modding to fit the skimmer last night....and also completed the heatsink for the LED's will hopefully have them ready before the weekend. (not that I need it to be ready yet....tank is still cycling)
