Been a member of MASA for some time now, but have'nt posted alot. Decided to post a few pictures of my new tank, to find out what you guys think. The system is about 400l including the sump.
Main Display is 1m / 550mm / 750mm ( l / w / h ). I'm running a reefocto DNW 150 - 6530 skimmer, 2 OR 3500's ( one for return and one for closed loop ), AM ocean light with a 250w MH and 2 T5 actinics.
There is also 2 extra seios to add some more flow.
The tank was designed by Leslie ( thanks man ) and is running very smoothly. Only have a little bit of LR in ( ok almost nothing, but i'm getting there slowly ). Still need a few things regarding equipment and livestock.
The pics were taken with my phone, hope you guys can see something.
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have to say special thanks to Leslie, most of the equipment came from him at very decent prices...

great now im gonna have to catch that aswell for viper :lol:
lol, nah, I used one of those to cycle my first ever reef tank, well actually I just put him in there to see if he would die or not, I figured if he survived then my tank was ok to put other live stock in, those were the days when I knew nothing about SW fish tanks, not that I know anything now :p
