    So the cube is still running. But decided to go have another tank built, perky pets is doing the build, thanks to @perkypets and @Brendan6 for the build and the design.

    Thanks man, live stock I am thinking of so far will be.

    2x clowns
    Foxface
    Cleaner wrase
    Flame angel
    Red mandarin - once tank is perfect.
    Brown tank or sailfin tang

    Cleaner shrimp

    That's the basics for now.
    Flame angel will be last fish to introduce.

    That can be correct yes. Ill personally go for the curve 7 as a bigger skimmer is always better. Im running a 2500l skimmer on a 600l tank
