    At the moment it is, but as soon as the 150 is done cycling I'll be moving the fish and hermit crab to the 150, will wait 2 days and then add the corals and then shutting it down. The little one will become my quarantine tank so it will only be started up as needed.

    Nothing new really, just bought a couple things on Saturday for it.

    Well having a sump is always great, this specific upgrade doesn't have a sump underneath like most designs because of where I wanted to place my upgrade, so what I opted for was a 150l tank from PetStop, and which has a overflow and chambers at the back of the tank, this is where I'm running my pellet reactor, skimmer and return pump. The chamber area at the back isn't massive but I'd say it holds over 20l but will actually measure it today.

    So what I'd do is first see how much space you have available and where you want to place it firstly.

    As for lighting I'm currently running a Radion XR30W Gen 1 with TIR lense, they great units and work well but I'm only running it on 40% intensity at it's highest because of the depth of the tank and the height it's positioned at, I think anything more may have a negative affect on the corals, I might even turn it down still but will see when the corals are in, but 40% on that tank is quite bright already.

    No, the Jebbo has no chambers or anything. My 150l has chambers at the back.

    This tank was shutdown, its now my QC tank which I only setup when needed, it's actually at my mates place since he needed something to hold his shrimp in while he was dosing his display tank.
