    Please show pics?

    As for the sump, if you are fortunate enough to have an overflow. You can convert it to feed a sump beneath the tank.

    Then you can hide the skimmer and install an Deep Sand Bed that will help with keeping (aargh!! I cant remember the names) your water in good condition. He.. he..

    While you are beginning I would advise you to browse through MASA and get the setup right now before you stock that beautiful tank. ;)

    Welcome to the forum wildbunny.

    Looks like you're off to a good start there, nice looking tank. Good to see it's been running for a month and you haven't added any livestock yet :thumbup:

    Any idea on what you want to keep? Fish only or do you want to keep corals as well?

    Stick around, the guys here will ensure you end up with an awesome tank :)

    Stunning tank wildbunny.
    Have you used stainless orr aluminium as trim. Really dig the idea.

    Agree with the sump and moving the skimmer downstairs comment. The skimmer distracts from an otherwise perfect set up.

    Welcome wildbunny! And yeah - everyone else has already said it all. Only one thing to add - please post pictures as you go along! Nice to see progress pictures! :)

    And oh yes - nice to have another fellow SCUBA diver on the forum! ;-)

    Who you dive with? Scuba Scene?
