    So time has come, i am going to shut down my cube and go on with this giant of a tank.
    All livestock will be transferred to new home.

    Tank:
    1400 x 850 x 600
    Black Silicone
    Skinny Overflow
    Euro and Cross Bracing

    Stand:
    50mm Square Tubing
    Powder Coated

    Sump:
    1200 x 600 x 450
    Black Silicone
    3 Chambers

    Filtration:
    Bought a 2nd Hand JNS SC3 Skimmer Rated 1500L
    Will add a Pellet Reactor later on

    Lighting:
    Radions of course!!!!!:p

    Flow:
    Still saving up some money lol...

    Extras:
    Special Floor Grade Araganite
    25kg Marco Rock (will need 25 more)


    Now the system will be a mixed reef:
    Corals will be added such as SPS,LPS,Rics,Zoas and many more.

    This will hopefully be my last tank for a very long time.

    Took allot of inspiration from the look of @mariusmeyer tank looks like.

    will be a slow process as the budget is not to high!!!

    Will post some photos the weekend.:thumbup:
