    So the time has come at last to start our 2.5m x 1m FO tank... :thumbup:

    I'd thought I'd share some photos with the fellow pic junkies ;)

    Still lots to do, but we're getting there slowly.

    It's going to be mainly Angels... and I have a LONG list...

    With the other 2 x 1.5m setups with SPS & LPS respectively, here I can focus just on the fish we want :)

    I thought about it, but the 3 x 400W MH's will hopefully soon be out, being replaced with 3 x Vertex Illumina SR260 350mm units... :)
