    Hi guys. My name is Patrick, been in the hobby for about 8 years, first with a 2m x 700 x 800 tank, which lasted 4 years. Noticed a small chip, and the rest is history.

    I then decided to build a more practical tank, 3000 x 500 x 500. This tank ran for 3 years. Due to unforeseen circumstances I had to relocate and lost ALL... Needless to say once one has an ocean in your living room, YOU HOOKED. So about a year ago I started it up again. And must admit, this time I took my time. It was painful but very well worth it. Today my little ocean is in perfect health.

    Still got tons of work on it, but ya, patients............

    Welcome to MASA Reefcraze. What are the specs of your new setup? Some rather large setups you've had before. You won't hear any complaints this side. :thumbup:

    Welcome to MASA Reefcraze.

    From the pics you posted, I couldn't really tell whether you have a DSB in your sump or ceramic balls?
