    Hey Peeps,

    Eventually managed to move my tank on Sunday, sucsessfully I should say...

    Redone the aquascaping a bit, with a new sump and connected my RO unit today as well, so here's just some pics.

    Some full tank photo's with only 2 blue t5 actinics

    OK, thanx for the compliments.

    Viper: Size is 1.5(l) x 0.5(h) x 0.45(w). Not too big, I know. Would have liked it to be 600 hight and 600 depth, more possibilities in scaping... (A.N.G.R.Y. 3 does it nicely)

    Mekaeel, sump pics to follow:

    Here's the pics (photobucket was quick, hehe)

    Full view of the system, with sump curtain closed:

    [​IMG]

    And here's the sump: From Right to left:
    The 1st chamber with skimmer (had to modify the skimmer to fit in there, since I chucked the previous sump. So just batteling to adjust it correctly again - thus the old berlin air lift, just to help out...
    2nd chamber is the DSB - still need to add more shingle for it. Also have some Chaeto in there.
    3rd chamber is the refugium - needing some more LR
    Last chamber is the heater and return pump.

    That's about it...

    It's a very fine shingle, the same as what I got from Phat's dsb - Live sand added to the substrate, so there's a good seeding in it

    Pics will come, however don't expect mirracles. Due to my believe of slow and steady, and my lack of funds, hehe, it won't happen quickly.

    Sump dimentions are 1.4(l) x 0.45(w) x 0.28(h). Wouls have liked it to be higher, but it's a nice easily accessible size (and for R100...who needs more)
