    After 35 years of fish keeping I eventually went SW.
    After sound advice from MASA and its members, read, read and read, and on the recommendation of a Moderator I went to Idol Marine.:thumbup:

    Sump 1510 X 380 X 170 - 98 ltrs running
    Refugium - 660 X 790 X 300 - 156 ltrs
    Total - 1421 ltrs

    Profilux 3 plus SMS System
    Probes, salinity, Temp, PH 1(Tank), PH2 (Reactor)
    Reef Octopus - Skimmer, Calcium & Magnesium Reactor, Kalkstirrer, NP Reactor
