    Towards the end of 2006 my 600l LPS system of twelve years popped. The resulting deluge meant that carpets had to be lifted and replaced. Carpets were not a replacement option (obviously). Composite wooden flooring was given some serious consideration. As no guarantee was offered for water damage i/WE decided that Africa had some awesome natural rock as flooring to offer, and the decision then became.... what colour sandstone to get. We ended up buying the imported Italian equivalent in porcelain (at 3 times the price) Why??? Because of water damage of course..... Funny the tricks life plays on you..

    Not yet. Still need a lot more rock before things become epoxied in place. The right hand side of my tank is still bare. I am currently cooking another 20kg...but conservatively speaking, need at least another 100kg before final construction plans become cast in concrete.

    More this weekend.
    Phat there really is'nt too much else...my sump is a plastic camping box with live rock...and maybe the skimmer.. which in anybodies language would be considered overkill.
    Smithers... i do run Zeo, and am slowly becoming a believer. No other form of nutrient assimilation or absorbtion other than GAC
