    WOW! I like the clean look of the tank and nice scaping as well!:thumbup: Just wish I had seperate space I could use for a engine room, I have so many ideas but don't want all the equipment ending up on the living room floor!

    Thanks. It is a hard tank to take pics of because it is round. I changed the aquascaping the other day so it looks alot different now. I should take more pics.

    Please do! Just wondering what one of those halfrounds would cost here in SA...:whistling: Are you only running a CLS without any additional pumps, if so how many LPH can your return pump handle?

    I have a Reeflo Barracuda pump 4800gl/hr there is 3.75 liters to a gallon so i think that would be 18000 liters/hr That sounds so high in liters. I paid $3900 Canadian for the tank and the stand

    Sheesh, would like one of those to run a CLS, thinking of getting myself a 40000LPH Polario wavemaker when they are finally launced over here- if it's ever going to happen as the date keeps on getting extended. Too affraid to ask how much that would cost in South African rands with import duties and so on! I know it must be a pain to take photos of but it must be a beaut to look at! So please tell us a bit more about your system...

    Tank Update

    I changed some things around in my tank and I got a couple of frags off of Snappy and thought I would post some new pics.
