    Hi All.

    I finaly got round to taking some pics of my TL550:biggrin: its been stocked for about a month now, mostly with the stuff I moved over from my old 30L tank just lots of extra live rock, a total of about 15kgs. Everythings standard except for the lighting and powerheads. For the lighting I left one of the flourecents in and added a 54w diy led fixture, And also a sump light for the cheato. There is a clown and a coral beauty hiding in there somewhere they didn't want to stay still enough fo a picture Thanks to all who gave me advice, and frags.:1:I am really enjoying this tank.

    Sorry tremayn didn't see your message its got a built in sump at the back, if you can call it that. Just the standard setup with skimmer cheato, and return pump.
    It works quite well.
