    Hey peeps

    Finally my tank is up and ruining.:thumbup:

    Let me first say thanks to @keyaam, if it was not for him saving my ass, my tank wouldn't of been running for another couple of months.:thumbup:

    Equipment:

    The display tank: 120L*50w*70h done in black silicone with two slimline overflows
    Sump: Standard 3ft with 3 compartments: return - fudge - skimmer
    Skimmer:
    Bubble Magus NAC6 modded to fit A reef octo OTP-2000 pump
    Circulation: 2* sun sun 6000L at the moment
    Return: Aqua h2o at 3000L/H
    Lights: Odyssea quad 54w light unit 2*white and 2*actinic
    Heater: Jager 300w

    I'm running it with NSW and beach sand as substrate.
    Water and sand was added on Saturday, and base rock was added yesterday. Still need to get a few kg's of live rock.

    Righto, pics for you picoholics.:whistling: pic quality is not so great.

    Tank and sump still empty:
