    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.

    Thanks for all the compliment.
    Crazy to think that all except the pink ones come from natal.

    I took out one of my PL tubes and replaced it with this. Just had to cut down the heatsink a bit.
