    Hi Ladies and Gents

    Thought I would post some pics of my Juwel Rio 180.

    Its been running about 5 months now, but hopefully I will have my new 500L tank in the next month or so.

    Let me know what you think!;)

    Anyway here are the pics (sorry they are so bad, only have a cell cam.)

    Those Juwel tanks are also not bad, much better than the Jebos:whistling:

    Thx, changed the T5 tubes for the marine ones, added a Jebo hang-on skimmer(don't say it), cascade 600 internal filter, seio M620 and a HC150 chiller.

    Very nice Lighty. You already have some great livestock and great rock.:thumbup:

    Is that a Cleaner Wrasse swimming around. They do not fair well in captivity. Sorry.
    The bubble at the top right does not like to much flow. I would drop it lower. Although they can tolerate light i have found that if they are under halides they do best deeper down, and out of the current.

    Overall great looking rig:yeahdude:

    Kanga, its a jebo 178 ( I think) will take a pic and post it tomorrow .

    Sunburst, my cleaner wrasse has been trouble free, hope it stays that was, bubble is in calm water up there, its a lot stronger down at bottom from my M620. thanks for the advice.
