    Will try and take some PIC's later on! Tank has been Running since 23 July.
    No problems this far, only your usual algae thats growing.

    Have some Fish in there aswell.

    Some Clowns, Cardinals and Gobies.
    Busy with the Bucket Method on a Regal Tang before I'll add her to the Display. Started Yesterday, so 9 more days to go.

    Will keep you Guys posted.

    Awesome build, well done...

    Maybe I'm not looking right but why is your return and overflow on the same pipe manifold?

    Was wondering when someone was going to pick that up! They are Plumbed into the same manifold. But therse a 1" Pipe Running in the inside of the 2" pipe with some internal fittings to make all this possible.

    The main reason for this was to save some space underneath the Display!
