    Hi guys, I finally found a 2m +/-780L at a bargain price, just waiting for it and the budget:whistling:, will probably get it end of the month/ beginning next month.
    Planned equipment specs is as follow:

    DT
    3x 250w 14000K Mh's
    2x 54w 20000K T5's
    20000lph Polario:thumbup:
    2x 5000lph wavemakers which I allready have

    Sump

    2500lph return
    3x 300w Jagger
    Awaiting prices on the Reef Octo Extreme
    DSB with playsand
    Algae scrubber

    Layout as follow:
    1st Chamber- Skimmer
    2nd Chamber- Algae scrubber
    3rd Chamber- DSB
    4th Chamber- return+ space for future equipment

    Refugium
    +/- 60L with crushed LR and a 20w NO flourescent.

    This all will happen over a few months as money come available, but at least the tank and stand is a start! Any suggestions?:slayer:

    Look at the Bubble Magus skimmers before you get the Reef Octo. Check them out www.bubble-magus.com skimmers are copies of Bubble king and deltec skimmers, but at cheap prices..

    Ja, don't know if you seen this yet, it's def worth taking a look at YouTube - Polario! I'm going to plumb it as a closed loop to make my tank more nennie safe! Also want to start with a DIY Po4 and calcium reactor, want to make all as easy and with the least maitenance possible!:)

    It's made by Rio/Seio, and most agents will be able to get you one.. check with the sponsors, know Eco Aquatics is placing pre-orders. As far as pricing is concerned I'm not so sure but will be +/- R2000-3000 for the pump plus the controller! Great price considering the monster output and the potential of chaotic flow!

    Iv'e got one and they are great. Suggest you have holes drilled so that you can plumb it as per the one on the show.

    This machine pumps like nothing and the beauty is it isn't a concentrated flow either.

    I got mine which is one of 5 in the country, the others were given to suppliers for demo's so mine is the first in a tank in SA:) I got mine from MadGerman Horst.
    They will be available in a few weeks and the price needs to be discussed with the supplier as the R$ thingy will have impact.
