    Good day all
    600 cube with stand sump and ro top up tank
    Narc 7 skimmer overskimming 5 times volume
    Santa monica algae turf scrubber 4 led upflow
    Turning water 20 times an hour through sump
    Kessil led too weak for tank size
    So reef only occupies 300 cube in tank

    Zippy we sat down and said that exact word....ayoob and myself wanted to intrigue people with the scape.........isn't it co-incidental that you would chose that exact word...game over !
