    Hi guys

    So I thought it was about time to put my own tank on the forum. I have seen many of my fellow reefers tanks over the past 21 months and I must admit there are so many fantastic tanks out there. :thumbup:

    My tank is now almost 2 years old and I'm still full of excitement now as I was on day one. It feels like just the other day I was staring into my tank looking for any life form whatsoever. Now 2 years down the line my tank is too full and can barely fit another coral in my tank.:banghead:

    My tank specs are as follows:

    DT - Jebo 1500 x 600 x 600 ( rounded corners )
    Sump - custom made By @Fuzzy 1230L x 490W x 350H
    Stand - custom made by me solid pine main supports and melamine exterior.

    why did you hide your tank for all this time? No reason to do that!

    Nice tank.

    Very very nice
    Without too much info I have no choice but to assume that pot plant on the left is driving this system! (Some sort of special bio-organism disguised as a pot plant right?)
    Give us more info - additives? Maintenance regimen? And pot plant species?

    Very nice! Very similar to my combination of corals. What is your typical nitrate reading at?
