    Hi everyone thought i would start a new thread on my new tank, its been a while since i took this hobby serious again , but once this bug bites there is no letting go. I recently moved to Cape Town and thought well why not start a new tank, there is more options here than there was in bloem and so makes the hobby easier. I first started out with a 500mm x 500mm x 400mm cube sumpless and it took me about 2 months before it started getting to small, so i decided to do a nice tank in my office. This tank would mostly be SPS some sofies and LPS and small fish.

    Tank. : 800mm x 600mm x 450mm starfire rimless 8mm glass
    Sump : 700mm x 500mm x 400mm clear float 5mm glass
    Stand : 800mm x 600mm x 1000mm steel stand 32mm x 32mm square tubbing

    Skimmer : Bubble Magus Curve 5 rated for 500l
    Lights : 6 x 24w Ati t5 Light unit
    Return : QuietOne 6000 5800lph
    Doser : Jebao DP4
    Heating : 2 x 150w Eheim Jagger
    Cooling : 240v fan
    Flow : 2 x Jebao RW 4

    Substrate : 6.8 kg Aragalive fiji pink Caribsea
    LR : 7kg Kenya in sump and 15Kg Red Fiji and blue for display
