    So here we go again. I sold the 1.5m tank due to the time and effort it took. Decided on a 60cm cube. This will be the chronology...

    i predict in the very near future "Nano-Reef SA"

    so many guys are now into the nanos ,so many guys are swopping out there huge wopper systems for nanos,so many newbies are hittn up nanos and making them spectacular specially the TL550s and the 600cubes

    this has become a new evolution in SA reefing,wicked awesum and over the top Nanos

    looking forward to your nano @rakabos, judging on your old tank,uve got the green fingers:thumbup:

    I picked up the tank today from @Manic. It came with some goodies

    60cm Starfire rimless cube with metal stand
    MP10W ES flow pump
    RO Unit with a booster pump
    Reef Octopus 160X skimmer
    White Aragonite

    Also decided to grab a chiller which was going for a bargain
