Ok so the tank is finally setup. Initially it was to be SPS dominated but then i decided against it as i will not have the time to maintain it as i would like plus i would rather have the coral munchers in the tank as well as a leka big fish load. so breakdown of the system
130*70W*55H
Reef inmates 8*54 T5 unit currently only using 4 bulbs:
2*20K
1*Actinic
1*12K
will add a 8800k as well as another actinic
Reefocto cone XP2000 skimmer
Eheim 1260 return pump
currently 3*12000 lph Sun Suns in the tank 1 will be pointed towards the bottom of the tank(yes tank will remain BB) and the other 2 will be mounted on the back glass deflected of the right and left panes of the tank so they will not be very visible
Around 40Kg live rock
Water boy 2 in 1 that will run Purigen as well As rowaphos running of Halei 500Lph pump - to be connected
BEEG Otto Fluidised bed filter that will run carbon Think will add 500g of carbon in there at a time and will be running of a Halei 500Lph pump - to be connected.

Proposed fish list
1*small Naso tang
1*scopas Tang
1*yellow tang
1*Eibli angel
1*Coral beauty angel
1*Auriga Butterfly fish (need to research it 1st)
1*Midas blenny

3*Anthias

Proposed coral list:
All types of mushrooms all and any colours(these will be to cover the base of the tank)
GSP
Xenia
Sacropytons
Leathers
Pin cushions
Will try a few Digi's for the stick effect
Anything else that wont get munched and does not need a LNS

YUp filled the overflow with strips of Plastic leathergrain. Made it much quieter. Will be a bit of work to clean once in a while but its worth it. If u look carefully at the overflow u will see it

A Beautiful place!
Very nice Ziyaad, looks great! I'm just a substrate fan, so BB not for me... Other than that, cool tank!

Tank is looking fantastic, so far, Ziyaad! Great skimmer there mate! What is that XP2000 rated for?
600L - No over ratings with the blasters considering that this pump pulls in between 1000 and 1400lph of air which is on the same level as the old TS4
Forgot to add,what 20k bulbs are you burning.
Reeftek

Not leka hey think its because there is nothing in the tank and its nutrient deficient
