    So after 3 years in the hobby i finally got the tank i've always wanted...After doing a mojar Marine Roadtrip this past weekend, i have all equip i wanted, thanks to all the sellers ;)

    New System will be Full Reef mostly softie dominated and LSP as i like the movement... couple of tangs and some small fish to just keep it balanced.

    New Display Tank Dimension :
    120cm x 60cm x 70cm high black silicone, slim overflow ( built by Dorry Pets )

    Sump with 3 chambers: 1st custom mechanical filter container into bio rock mix and cheato , 2nd skimmer,carbon and purigen, return chamber....forth chamber on side for top up RO water....

    Newer model TS3 skimmer with original pump, works like a beast!

    Aqua Medic Lighting Pendant with 1 x 250W MH and 2 x T5 Actinics suspended roughly 20cm above waterlevel

    About 60kg mixed liverock in DT and 10kg in sump...


    Keep the advice rolling:thumbup:


    :yeahdude:Pics to follow....

    Keyaam, that's cool dude, but when you find a nice rusted anchor you have to send it to me as we are on quite a short supply of rusty anchors here in the Transvaal...:lol:

    Looks great. This looks like the tank you bought from Potjie? If yes, then it was built by Dorry Pets and not Idol.
