Hi Guys this is my 3 foot tank im busy setting up at home. Everything is second hand except the 3 Seios and the heater. This tank is being built on a much tighter budget than the one at work.

Two are 620's and I think they are 2500lph and the other is a prop model not to sure of model and i think flow is pretty much the same.
If u got the prop from LFS in Beacon Bay i would guess its a 530? Think those were the only ones they had in stock, which would be 2000L/h.

Very nice Baron, now it is just the waiting game hey?
Just a Q: do you have a hole in the white delivery line incase power goes out for it not to back siphon? Also make sure your sump can handle both tank and drum access water when pump stops for whatever reason ;)

The return from the drum has an elbow facing up and a breather. I have done a mock power failure and all is well.

Have managed to put doors onto the metal frame. Will post pics asap. Going to fire up the attinic T5's tonight and let them run on a timer. How long should I let them run while the tank is cycling.
