    Well suppose its about time i posted some pics tank, Tank was set up on the 19/03/2009 making it just over 2 months old. Jeez time flew by.

    Live rock was well cured its about 2 or 3 years old, and a few new pieces.
    Skimmer TS2
    Lights all t5 3 white and 4 blue
    Flow seio flow pumps

    Tank size 1250x500x500
    Sump size 850x 470x 350

    My refuge is a 20l paint drum and is set up remote ( no sump pics just yet still messy )
    Substrate in dsb sea sand and allot of handful's from other setups.

    From been a SPS fanatic, i have tried to go completely in the other direction
    i am gonna concentrate on LPS. My aim is to make this a full blown LPS reef, with a few softies.

    After over a years break from active reefing i have really enjoyed chatting and interacting with some of the new names an MASA, you guy's have some really great set ups.

    I would like to thank Mudshark, he has played a major part in getting me back into reefing, and koeks, dude you need to start a thread now on your tank.

    Well time for a few pics. all the are from the last few weeks i have however just changed my own scaping to accomadate the lower flow in the tank i still have a few mods to do but am waiting for one or two orders to come in.

    Looking nice hey! Love that ricordea. What are you using for phosphate removal? Just remembered that I still have ferrous oxide. Remind me when you see me again if you're interested.
