    Hi all

    This is the start of my new adventure. I am starting to set up my new tank.

    Tank: 1.5mx600mmx600mm
    sump: 1.2mx500mmx450mm


    Reef Octopus Blaster 5000 super skimmer
    2x Eheim 300w heaters
    Sicce Me9000e return pump
    Triple dosing pump

    Aragnite seafloor special grade

    I'll put on a pic tonight of the tank as it stand at the moment.

    @DubKorps you've got it. I just love this tank. I could see the pain of K_one to let this one go.

    @K_ONE I really felt bad for you to see this beauty go. I am waiting for all my sump equipment to arraive. Tn the mean time I am busy setting up a container for RO water and salt mix on the outside of that wall. I also busy with a DIY auto top up.

    Just finished painting the wall behind the tank. Now its on its way to get wet.

    Changes to the tank are CREE LED lights fitted and the back pannel is now black. Will post some pics later.

    Looking good Kalvyn!

    That crab doesn't look reef safe.. Did it come with the live rock?
    Can we get pics of the sump?

    Happy to see the progress :)

    @K_ONE I thought you would enjoy seeing water in the tank. Will still ad some more live rock. The sump is still in a working proses. I am stil waiting for a thing or two to finish the sump. Will post pics as soon as I am done with sump.
