    Ok so it is maybe not the best system out there but it is still work in progress.

    So I have a standard 4 foot tank that I drilled 2 32mm wholes for plumbing and overflow
    aggregate is coarse crushed coral

    I have around 25kg live rock in DT
    Lighting is 4 54w T5's 2 blue and 2 white. Controlled by a digital in board timer
    Flow is 1 1200L/h and return pump is a 2500L/H
    Sump
    thinking of total makeover but I'm running a Jebo skimmer
    I put crushed coral instead of sand in the DSB
    ceramic tubes

    Stock
    1x sail fin tang
    1x bicolor angel
    1x Vermiculated angel
    1x Red Coris Wrasse (juvenile)
    1x Sail fin blenny
    2x true perc clown
    1x Allen's Damsel
    1x Scissortail Goby
    1x Green Mandarin fish
    1x Lyretail Anthias
    1x Regal tang
    Inverts
    2x Cleaner shrimp
    1x banded shrimp

    Coral
    some Ricordea Mushrooms
    1x Hammer
    1x Pincushion
    Some blue mushroom
    1x Kenya Tree
    some Green Mushrooms

    Hi

    I see the sump stands directly on the metal, in my opinion this is very risky.

    Glass tanks/sumps dont always break immediately, I know someone who placed a sump directly on a wooden board, no foam, the sump cracked only after 3 years.

    Just a thought.
