    Starting off.. once again....

    Hi guys

    I am from Brackenfell, and my previous tank was a 1,2 which I had about 12 years ago untill I had a huge short circuit and a little fire dripping plastic into the water killing off just a bout everything :eek:

    I plan on putting up a 2meter tank later on once I settle permanently in Langebaan, but for now I want to set up a small FOWLR system.

    I have this tank, on a the cabinet it came with which my son stopped using for guppies. :p
    I can not the remember the brand of the tank.

    The dimensions is H36 x W57 x D25, so I assume around 50 liters

    I was thinking of putting a sump in the cabinet, And get ting rid of the little Black "filtration" system that is build in, and obviously I will have to modify the lighting system which is built in.

    Any suggestions on what compartments I will need for the sump? Obviously I will need to get a skimmer in there.

    Believe it or not, I still have a 1000 and a 600 Blueline Hydea powerheads that still works after 15 years :tt2:

    Any suggestions or advice will be appreciated.

    BTW - for those in the cape.... Is SAMS the only proper place for stock and equipment, or are the some in the Northern suburbs as well?
