    Robin that is a wonderful tank. Makes me think about a new tank. Lets have a peek at your sump and all the goodies you have in there?

    Thanks a lot guys, not much under the hood actually Rod, a very small skimmer for this size tank(IM 1000), its the same one i used on a 400litre system actually. I run carbon 24/7 about 700g and replace twice a month, the sand bed seen above has 3 4ft tubes and a whole lot of chaeto and pipe fish now and the large fairly empty sump tank has about 40 kenyan live rock to assist with overall filtration. Thanks a lot to Wessel for his time and patience!

    Hi Robin You using activated carbon I see. I am scared to, because I dont trust the brand I can get. What are you using?

    Aqua Medic pellets, really easy to rinse and i feel they dont clog up like others. BTW i have no business affiliation with AM but some of their products are great, lighting and pumps anyway.
