    So I was really bored, and decided to copy all the pics in my thread and put them all in one thread to make it easier for me to go back and check out the progress, as I really have to many pics on my pc to search amongst them all.

    This is really not for comments as it is just easier to find pics without turning pages due to comments, so please mods, try and help to keep the text outta this thread.....

    First Equipment:

    Reef Octopus with Needle wheel pumps

    And the Kalkwasser

    And one from the corner of the Tv Room:

    Unfortunately the existing tank is in front of the new tank and it is not easy to take a full frontal, unless I stand on a chair, pressing the cellphone to the ceiling:

    Good friends like Hugo from Class Glass fixing the sump while I was in a meeting:

    This is the closed loop system running at the bottom of the tank, covered with rock - I have allowed for 08 "Outlets"

    This photo is from the right towards the left:

    DSC09952.jpg

    And a "Full Shot". It is difficult to get a full shot as the existing tank was moved forward to create space for the new tank and is standing in the middle of nowhere thus making it difficult to take "full frontals"
