    After being out of the game for almost 2 years i have decided i needed to start up again.
    So got myself an aquaria 1.5mt, 800lt tank with zet 6600 led lighting, phosphate reactor, auto top up, ro machine. Basically the works. Thanks to Obey from fish tank services for his excellent work of moving and setting up the tank.

    Ja, that light will be too small.
    On my 1.2M tank it's right on the limit.
    When's the pics of your system coming?

    Nice what do you have your setting on and how high is the light from your tank? It looks like the 6600 covers the 1.5 tank nicely

    Definitely a great tank. One I had my eye on, but I'm so blown away by the @Aquaria-SA tanks that I want to go to the 2M but convert to dual view front and back.As a room divider

    That will be a great idea madmatt. I had the aquaria 1mt and now have the 1.5mt. Slowly moving up the ladder to eventually get the 3mt beast. They are amazing tanks.
