    Hi

    So after having had to break down my 1.5m SPS system, due to my little ones health broblmes and us traveling extensively to Cape Town, I have decided its time to get something going again....as we will spent lots of time at home now (cant take little one out of house just yet)..:)

    I starting planning and the ball is on the roll, with some goodies already arriving and tank, sump and cabinet on its way....

    Specs:

    Tank: 700 x 600 x 400 (water level at 360), rimless, starfire.
    Sump, 600 x 600 (inlet, sock holders, refugium, RO chameber, return)
    Cabinet - high gloss black

    Equipment:

    Already arrived:
    Ecotech Radion Pro Gen 3 :thumbup:
    BM Curve 5 Skimmer
    Reef Octo Essence return pump
    Hailea Chiller
    Jeboa WR-8 Wireless Pumps x 2

    Reused Equipment:
    Tripple Dosing Pump

    Pics to follow.....:)

    Oh, very very impressed with this Curve 5 skimmer.....silent as night.....had to double check to see if its running.....bubbles (in the bath tub)....is super fine and looks like it will be a great piece of kit....also the pump only uses 8watts.....so far the combined power consumption of the sump area will be about 45 watts.....:thumbup:
