    I like the aquascaping but I would turn the powerheads to face in to create water movement where your corals will eventually be. Well done so far

    The reason why my tank is still so empty is that i work offshore....
    I don't want to put in things that will make my wife panic...

    Thus far she has been a great help to me when i was away...

    when i normally return my tank is full of hair algae...
    why i cannot understand...

    About a 6weeks ago my KH went very high but with the support of people like Tony and few others it came down...

    Hey Riyad

    I see that this i a FOWLR system I would turn off the halides for now and just run the t5s. When you upgrade to a reef tank then turn the halides on.
