    To start of this thread I have to compliment Sheldon @Marine Aquatics for his excellent service and turn around time for getting all the equipment and the tank in such a short time.

    You put your clients first and one can see your passion for this hobby. I am definitely a customer for life.

    So here we go.....

    Sometime ago I advertised my S650 and a while later decided on keeping it, but I fell in love with the P650 and looked at photos everyday and my love for this tank just grew stronger and stronger.

    Luckily someone wanted my S650 and was willing to pay my asking price, only question was before I sell, was there a P650 in white availible?

    Now this is where Sheldon stepped in and within half an hour I received my quote for everything I wanted and confirmation that there was one in stock. Thanks again Sheldon. Awesome service.

    Hardware I started simple which concludes the following

    4 x XR30W Gen 3's (Lenses will be upgraded later on)
    2 x MP 40 QD'S
    Reeflink
    Reef Octopus NW200 Skimmer.

    Fish I kept from the old system is my lovely Gem tang and my Marine Betta. Currently being looked after by a friend untill the cycle has been completed.


    Here are some photos 20180409_081554.jpg 20180410_191122.jpg 20180410_191258.jpg 20180411_154756.jpg 20180411_154752.jpg 20180411_154746.jpg 20180412_081423.jpg 20180415_105546.jpg

    Had the RSM S -Max650. Wanted the Peninsula for the reason of looking through the tank on both long ends

    Congrats on the new tank. Love the peninsula. When I eventually upgrade it is my first choice.
