Hi,

I have setup a new tank, since selling all my previous tanks and moving into a new home. It's a 1.5m X 0.6m X 0.6m 10mm glass. It has a closed loop and dual overflows in the two back corners of the tank. Lighting has been supplied by 2 x 250w metal halides. Pics to follow.

Sorry about the quality of the pics, the lights were off and I don't know how to use this camera.

Looking really good Imran.

Why don't you paint the background black on the outside (seeing that the overflows are black already). Would look very nice IMO.

That's going to be a bit difficult with the closed loop in the way.

I'll be taking a few more photos soon. Don't really want to show my engine room yet, because it's really untidy at the moment.
