    Hi Guys,

    I plan to build a 1.8 to 2m long tank. Any suggestions on some dimensions for h and w.
    I plan to keep a mix of fish and coral. With regards to the fish , nothing large just the Tangs, Clowns,etc and if I can through in a star fish why not.

    Do you know of any tank builders in JHB/PTA areas.

    Thanks

    IMO the wider the better, mine is 780mm w x 600mm h x 1500mm l. There is so much space for fish to swim and my scaping is 150mm x 200mm away from the glass all around. No prob to clean the glass.
    I've got 70kg LR in the tank and there is plenty space for more if i want to add.
    My burst tank was only 600mm wide all the LR was on top of each other and it p##sed me off, no reef effect only a pile off rocks. Bad bad bad.
    Busy updating my thread will post in a few minutes, please tell me if i'm wrong.
