    Ok,so I,ve been out the hobby for around a year now,been really depressed after a recent move,lost all my livestock.Was at a mall around 3 weeks ago and decided to check out the petshop.Anyway to cut a long story short,walked out with a second hand 500x500 cube, so here goes:

    Tank :500x500 cube
    Flow :2 Tunze 6055,s 0n a multicontroller
    Skimmer :Reef Octopus xp2000 cone(way overrated)
    Phos/Carb Reactors :Reef Octopus(not hooked up)running carbon passively.
    Zeolite Reactor :Reef Octopus zf100
    Lighting :70watt Nepturion Blv Halide

    Presently dosing:

    0.2mls Zeostart3
    2drops Zeobac
    200mls zeolites

    I have followed the Zeovit 14 day cycle,tanks been running now for almost 3 weeks.
