    julle n paar fotos belowe.
    Wel hier is my eerste probeerslag.
    So this was my house.
    I had the tank for 7 months and has broken it up a few days ago.
    Going to build a new tank at my new house.
    but this time I'm not going to do it all by myself.
    Will start a thread and keep you up to date with my progress. 12814a3aa500d7ad8.jpg 12814a3aa4e50ded9.jpg 12814a3aa49a86650.jpg 12814a3aa47c9dd4a.jpg 12814a3aa4383242a.jpg 12814a3aa41ca9c9f.jpg 12814a3aa3ee461df.jpg 12814a3aa3b8a938e.jpg 12814a3aa380bd935.jpg 12814a3aa31599669.jpg 12814a3aa2e02eee7.jpg 12814a3aa2c07ca42.jpg 12814a3aa29eeda95.jpg

    when do u plan to move and what sort of size tank are yiu planning to build? are you going to build it into the wall or have it on a stand like the old one was?

    what did you keep in the old tank?

    WOW Schaun! I am really impressed. This tank "look" (the tank and stand) was a STUNNER! Something REALLY "nice" and out of the "ordinary". Looks more like a TV on a TV stand than a marine tank ;)

    Really neat.

    So - if this one was looking this way - I cannot wait to see what the new one is going to look like!

    Good luck with the new build Schaun. Please keep us all updated!

    BTW: just a quick question - what type of live rock was that?
    And also - who advised you on the egg-crate at the bottom of the tank?
    (if you don't mind answering)....

    The new tank is going to be insane...2mx1.5m....only problem that puzzles me is...how to do scaping and place corals in the middle of that tank.
