    About a year ago I started with my tank,was very nervous as im really worried to get anything wrong

    tank is 2000by 500by500(got it from a friend who kept tropical fish
    sump is about half the length (a bit small but for a student thats all I could get)
    have 40kgs crushed coral for display
    lights 3*150w metal halides 4*24w t5 tubes
    skimmer Skimz sm161 rated for 800-1200 litres
    tank volume with sump is about 580 litres

    my skimmer and np pellet reactor

    I like your choice of live stock, that little leapord wrasse is really cool.

    Hey man,

    You tank looks amazing! Congrats and welcome to the marine aquatic world. I love the way that your tank takes up most of the space. If I could do that I would.

    Is that LED lighting by any chance?
