    I bought this Jebo in Mosselbay last year and finally decided to do something with it. I drilled a 20mm outlet and added a 6lt "filter sump" to it which has some Matrix and LR rubble in it together with a Boyu WG428 skimmer. The standard top filter I replaced with Purigen,Carbon and PhosXtrax. The light I also changed to a PL24w (white blue combo) and need to just add a mini waver in there. Livestock,sixline wrasse and maroon clowns.

    thanks Guys,

    It was a pretty simple job. Only the drilling of the hole bothered me as the glass is pretty thin but worked out well. As it stands now I can remove it as it was a tester so to speak. I want to attach it to the back panel but I'm lazy now. Will post a pic tonight.

    The Caluerpa came on that rock, however I did remove it a few days later. The rock layout, well it's one big one at the back and the corals I broke up as it came on one of those Zao gardens (multi coral rock).

    any pics of your lights and how you did the upgrade??? i have same tank and all that stopping me is the fact that the standard lights are too weak for corals and yellow enough to grow algae like crazy
