    Looking quite good there Slims. Only one change that I would want to suggest:
    knock out the glass panes to the left of the sump DSB, and increase the size of your DSB.....

    Slims - there's another suggestion that I would like to make.

    Marine fish and corals prefer a very wide/distributed water flow, instead of a jet-stream, uni-directional/lateral water flow. The pump you have in your display, gives the latter.

    Rather look into perhaps sourcing and purchasing the SunSun or SEIO range of power-heads. Due to the fact that their outlets are very wide (between 40mm and 55mm), the water flow generated would be far less directional or lateral.....

    You can in the interim change the direction which your current power-head is blowing the water into, by deflecting the water flow off one of the side, and not pointing directly at the corals.....
