    well it has been a while since my last post. here is an quick update. in July my 2M sps tank broke again. the previous time the manufactures replaced it with the same type, and i always wondered how long it would last (apparently not more than 18 months)
    so i ordered a 3.2m tank with stand to replace the 2m tank.

    My system consist of 2 tanks (was 2m and a 1.8m) and one central sump (about 1000L) and a 300L frag tank. the 1.8m was mostly softies (Yes WAS) this broke about 2 weeks ago. luckily my new tank is operational, but now little on the full side (even my sump is full of coral.

    but here r some pix of the new baby

    Baie mooi, Eddie :thumbup:

    Can't wait for our next club meeting to see it in the flesh. It's about time that I arrange for my tank to crack, so I can upgrade as well :whistling:
