    Hi, started up my marine tank again after 10 years of it standing in the corner after moving house. Tank has been cycling for 2 weeks now and very excited to get it up and running. Brown algae forming now so hopefully not too much longer. Ammonia is still high but dropping steadily.

    The last time round I rushed it, being impatient , and battled my @$%& off chasing water parameters , which was the main reason I didn't start it up again until now. This time I'm planning on taking it slow hopefully hahaha , and with the wealth of info on this site I am already feeling a bit more confident about it.

    Btw tank is 1500mm x 600mm x 600mm so I suppose that makes it around 500 odd litres.

    Great site , and allot of the tanks on here look awesome and inspiring.

    Always nice to see a new tank thread. Cant wait for the updates. Are you going to do a mixed reef, sps only or a FOWLR?

    Recommendation, Just keep an eye on the silicon on the tank. I have a very similar looking tank which stood dry for 6 years which caused the silicon to change colour and become like a medium milky white colour. I did not take notice of this and 2 years down the line the back glass sheet slipped loose from the bottom glass sheet leaving me with a full tank rebuild. Other than that, hope you don't have the same and the lighting and rock layout looks nice. Keep the pictures coming:thumbup:
