    Hi Guys,

    Been of the forum a while (sick :p). But thought I would update you on what ive been doing in the meantime.

    Been playing around with a joined 3 tank setup for a while now (1 tank nemo only, large reef DT & 1 tank FOWLR (triggers & other agressive species).

    So today Im picking up my second tank (1000 x 650 x 650) to fit next to my current DT (+/- 1600 x 650 x 650)

    Watch this space for updates:whistling:

    LOL guys...planning on posting a lot of pics as I am sure I will need input. So far....

    Picking up the 2nd DT today
    Main DT still full of corals , LR , Fish etc
    New stands are being made as we speak and should be ready by Tues / Wed
    New & Bigger +/- 300 L sump has been built
    All the gear is here

    My plan is to use LR & substarte from my main DT to seed the new tank (shorten the cycle)

    Also planning on using water from my current DT to get the params as close as possible once the two systems are joined / plumbed together

    THANX for the support guys :thumbup:
