Well took down my 4 foot, and made a home for some of my corals and fish in my cube
i got a while back from les, The entire system DT and sump holds just over 200l of water, not to big. DT measures 580mm x 580mm x 590mm all outside dims water level at 560mm. Sump 700mm x 360mm x 350mm water level at 260mm.
Ts2 skimmer is having a holiday in there but i was not going to get rid of it, plans for a bigger cube in the future.

Lighting 2 x 20k reeftek t5 and 2 x 12k reeftek t5, waiting for 1 more 12k to come in, all in individual reflectors.
My return is plumbed into a scwd that comes out behind my rockwork, internal flow is 2 x seio m620's, I am trying to get rid of the one that is visible in the display, thinking of a 2nd return pump, and plumbing it to discharge from the front also with a scwd.

All the substrate and rock are from the old system along with about 30% of the water.

Water param's

Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
Amonia 0
Alk 10dkh
Ca 420
Po4 currently undetectable
Mag not tested.

On my old system 400l, i did 2 waterchanges a week 1 of 20l and 1 of 40l, will be doing the same on this system just in smaller amounts, keeping this regime is easy as i live a couple of hundred metre's from the sea.

Thanks to Ryan for babysitting some of my bigger coral's while i build the bigger cube.

Pics to follow.

Hey Crispin, i am very lucky to have good live rock, i attribute this to most of my success, but as i mentioned before i swear by water changes, and believe that they can sort out 90% of all problems in our systems.

very nice tridan!!!
Thank you very much scuba, good luck with your new project.

very cool - I have got to get me a brain like that and some of those awesome pink zoos
Dude its the most insane coral hey i can sit and watch it at night for hours, especially after feeding it solids, i feed him often and the way he puffs up after a bit of fresh fish or prawn is wicked.
