    Hey guys.
    I just bought a brand spanking new Boyu TL450 today for my office as it goes with the colour of the office. I really wanted to play around with something small as the 1100l SPS reef is almost zero maintanance. Already filled with water, Caribbsea Aragonite, Zeolites and a few kg's of LR. I will post pics soon (my birthday tomorrow so please dont put pressure on me for pics :p ) and give more info regarding filteration and livestock etc.... :)

    Happy Happy for tomorrow,

    First things first take the standard skimmer out and try and get a better one, I currently have the Buyo WG308 skimmer in my one, but I am trying to get an OCTOPUS NANO SKIMMER now from Australia for the tank.

    Great show Mekaeel! OK - so no pics (for now) - understood. BUT, what about some more info on what you are planning to keep in there?

    BTW: I congratulated you on your "Happy Birthday Mekaeel" thread that Chikaboo was so nice to start up for you!

    :lol: Thanks guys
    Will snap some later on today.
    In terms of livestock, the tank will mainly be LPS, softies, Zoa's and maybe a twig or two right at the top. I will be taking this tank very slow and carefully choosing livestock.
    As far as fish go, im going to put in a pair of Clowns (dont know which ones yet).

    For now im running the standard skimmer for mechanical filteration, but might upgrade at a later stage if im not happy with the results. For biological filteration the tank will holds about 6-8 kg's LR and has a shalllow sand bed about 2-3cm's deep using Caribsea Aragonite.
    For my chemical filteration im going the same route I have used on my other systems, that is Vodka, Zeolites and a bacteria strain (Micro bacter 7) .
    I think that pretty much covers it (except for pics :p )?
