    Hi everyone

    Tank is finished:)

    20130711_203223.jpg


    TSR Sump (Fully loaded)

    20130711_203157.jpg

    20130711_203255.jpg

    Just added salt :)

    20130704_231852.jpg


    All flow will be handled by a Vertex Mocean 3500 so there will be Zero wires in the display

    Now the wait begins 10 days till i can stock some lovely SPS ,clams etc.
