    I like the "clean" look as in no overflow, no piping etc...
    Don't stress too much about the woodwork, it will come in time - well done, so far - I like.

    thanx all. Its been running for exactly 2 weeks now. The move was a big mess. Didn't have a dry patch in the house? Think i should put more rock in there? The pendant is from idol. Odyssea!

    Don't know, I like minamalist rock. Also we seem to get a lot of rock when we purchase corals so gives you space to grow.
