    Hey guys, thought I would start a proper thread for my exhibit.

    Unfortunately did not consider the camera requirements.....

    Only had it for 6 months so don't judge me :(

    Better photos to come but basic hardware is as follows:

    Return pump; Speck magic 6

    Closed circuit; 3 Speck porpoise, anti and clockwise flow, one doing the spraybar

    Skimmer; Custom Reeftek DNW??(I chopped it up and glued it together :p). With a Reef octo diablo DC5500s as bubbler and a red devil DC10,000 as feed pump.

    Lighting; 2 aquamedic oceanlight 2X250W halide units, 1X160W maxspect razor

    Looking great!

    This tank is deceptive. It's width is a lot more than it appears.

    If you've been struggling to run that tank on limited funds then you need to pat yourself on the back, I think the tank looks great, by the looks of it the clams and corals all look really healthy. :thumbup:

    It looks a public aquarium exhibit. Are you sure it is at your home? haha Awesome!!!!!!

    Is this your own personal creation and is it concrete?

    Well, I have 2 mentally handicapped clownfish. Finally got the clearance from seniors to purchase aquacultured coral so I can add some real colour!
