    All systems go!! after seeing rakabos upgrade, this inspired me to get a bigger setup as my fishies are growing rather large for their current home.
    Tank 1500x600x600
    Sump 1000x380x400

    There u go Greg! Those fish of mine are loving the new space to swim. The tangs are swimming laps around the tank you must come see them in action. What used to be just a tank with fish hiding here and there has turned into a swimming contest! Even the reclusive royal gramma was swimming openly this morning. When are you expecting the tank so we can look at getting it in the house. I have 500L worth of containers you can use. Took me about 4days of non-stop RO making to get the water ready.

    Gimme a shout if u need a hand!

    Dude, maybe go for a bigger skimmer? I think a TS3 might struggle in a tank that size?

    Try the OCTX or the DNW range. They are much better and you may be able to score a great deal in the Used market?
