    Thanks.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Yes i am new to this exciting hobby and my tank has been running for 5 weeks now. :yeahdude:

    My setup is as follows:
    1. 1.5 meter DT +- 600L
    2. Sump +- 100l, with 3 compartments. 1st comp with skimmer, 2nd comp filter with ceramic tubes, last comp with live rock and return pump.
    3. DT has about 38 kg's of live rock in with an awesomly constructed reef setup:thumbup:

    I made a mistake by putting fish in too early and lost one but managed to save the other two. They contracted whitespot, which i think, was caused by stress caused by amonia. The guy that set up my system put the skimmer in the last compartment with the return and therfore it did not work properly, but this is how we learn. I have learned so much by following the posts on this forum and now my system is hopefully running properly now.;)

    Regards
