    So i have made the jump to start a ponie tank.

    The size is about 57x57x 65(h) so the water volume is just over 200L

    This is just after i added 14kg of agronite (suger size) to the tank.

    Used abit of filter floss and in 2 days time...

    I want to keep the tank as simple as possible

    This tank is connected with my main display tank
    I have a octo 160 skimmer connected with a dsb.
    Lights at the moment is 2 aquaray 1000 units... Abit of a overkill but they are intended for my other tank.

    Still waiting for the ponies (Erectus)

    Have a look at the sponsors forum. You will find them there. Their second last entry contains the ponies!
