I could reduce the space for the cheato(sp?) so the DSB will become 60cm*25cm(L*W). Would that be better. the DSB is not my main source of nitrate reduction more a safe place for the little creatures to populate.

very much so. the blue 3000 runs off the OR3500. the smallER verson is the blue 1000 i think it comes with the OR2500? but could be wrong

In the Koeberg blast radius
Gaz, I think maximise your dsb area, run the cheato on top of the dsb,

Hell yes bigger is better so if you can do it.

But make the dsb as big as possible, it will do more for you than the space the Nitrate reducer etc takes up

What is the system volume going to be?

From the scetch-up pic, how will you keep the aglea scrubber in one place?
