Nice little tank, a bit of work and it will look top notch.

Looking nice Glen. Would rrplace that pump with something like a seio/boyu wavemaker and move the powerhead to behind the rocks, or put another seio behind tose rocks.

I'm keen to see how the de-nitrification coil works out.

denitrator

upgrading from 30 metre denitrification coil to proper diy denitrator, 50 cm by 160 mm plumbing pipe with 2 end caps and perspex base plate. 10 m of 6 mm plastic tubing, approx 5 kgs of ceramics and used four 10 mm right angle irrigation tubes to plumb it onto a minute powerhead to get that slow piddle type of flow

I did not know what your tank looks like- dont worry, it will be supalekka once you added the pieces coming in the new year. Will post some picks with some of yours included in my tank thread.
