    So I set up this little tank about 2 months ago, I would have liked to have gone bigger but I do not have the time to maintain a large system of my own at the moment. Lot's of my clients have huge tanks that I see once a week, so that keeps me entertained

    Ok the the system is as follows:

    Dimensions: 70l x 40w x 40h
    Sump: 60l x 33w x 33h
    Lighting: 4x24w T5 Ati's
    Flow: 3x 3000l/h Sunsun's
    Skimmer: Ts1

    Lot's of liverock and a DSB.

    I like simple tanks.

    As far as maintenance I do a 20% waterchange once a week and I maintain Mag, Alk and Ca.

    Additives depend on what I have lying around, but because of the small size regular water changes seem to be enough for now.

    Stock:

    Lots of Sps, zoa's, a acanth, a florida ric rock and my favorite is a tri-color ricordea Yuma I have had for about 3 months now.

    Fish:

    2 x Yasha Goby (pair)
    1 x Royal Gramma
    2 x True Percula clown (pair)
    1 x Argi Angel (Centropyge Argi)

    Pics to follow.

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    I do love the Yasha's. They actually live together in the same burrow, I'm trying to get a pic of them together. All you see is these two little heads sticking out of there hole :)

    Thanks man. The plastic bottle is for dosing, I just drip Mg, Alk and Calcium from bottles into the system. It's actually standing on the filter sock holder.
