    Looks good Henk

    Personal opinion... i would change the backround.... not very reefy.. maybe blue?... just my taste.

    Water parameters?


    Otherwise very neat setup!

    Cool henk, just keep in mind that it will fluctuate still, so even if they are good now doesnt mean the time is right.

    Rather take it slow now and reap rewards later (my opinion)

    BTW: your setup looks good :thumbup:, what return pump are you using ? As for the background unfortunately I have too agree, not very reefy, dont worry I had a similar background on my first tank....thats why I never posted pics of it on MASA :whistling: Cant it be turned around as the back is normally a solid colour
