Hey Kevin, took you long enough :D very nice system, is that blue and orange spindly thing a Gorgonian?

How's the resun auto top-up? Does it work well?

Thanks guys. Yep it is Dean. It was a pity purchase from a LFS but it has settled in quite well. The auto top up works very well - makes life a lot easier!
It is an upstream fuge Alan. Still needs to get fully operational though.

A picture of my new sump up and running.

Inlet chamber on right, flows through into skimmer compartment, along channel into DSB, along another channel to start of LR section, return chamber on left.

DSB is play sand seeded with sand from various beaches and also collected out at sea.

Looking great Kevin. Missed this thread. Did you make the sump yourself. And weren't you planing on building a new tank as well.

Yep, this is the first stage of the new tank. Getting all the ancillary stuff right first than will be able to construct the new tank and just move stuff over with a little bit of running dual systems.
