Hi guys.

The new tank has been running for 2 and a half years now.

The tank is 1250mmL x 500W x 500H with a water level of 490.
Sump is 1150L x 400H x 380W with a top up compartment. This time I made the tank with 10mm glass and euro bracing. Return pump is a Dymax 4500L. Skimmer is a Bubble magus curve 5. 2 x WP25 wavemakers.
DIY auto topup. 3000KVA UPS running on WP25 on H3 mode. Lights are 4 x54W T5 Sylvania. 2 x Marinestar, 1 x Atinic and a Skywhite.

Very nice. What's growing on the glass on the right hand side?

Thanks guys. Tank has recovered well after a crash about a year ago. ISKOM.
Soon as I changed over to Blue treasure salt things started picking and algae started dying.
I also dose 5ml of 10% volume Hydrogen Peroxide every 3rd day or when I remember.

Calcium and alk is dosed twice a week as a maintenance dose.
