    Hi all, and allow me to wish all of you a fabulous 2010 before I continue!

    It is SOOO NICE to do a post after being away for almost two years after I had to break my tank down for a move, then my holding tank cracked and the next try was a failure.

    This time around I took 6 months to build and start a 80 l tank that Sean Koekemoer gave to me after he moved his Oscars to his first marine tank.

    It is very small and I did not really have great expectations of the tank until it was started up.

    Basic specs: Tank 380 x 380 x 540 deep
    Back of tank sump/dsb 380 x 180 x 360 deep
    Main sump 455 x 320 x 310 deep
    Lighting 1 x 150 MH 20000k
    1 x 10 w actinic t8
    Skimmer Reeftek TS2
