    well after a year of playing around with a boyu tl450 i decided its time to go a little bit bigger. well only another 55ltr bigger. so its not a lot. tank size is 690mm x 390mm x 390mm and sump is standard Daro 600mm tank. skimmer is a reeftek TS2. sump consists of 2 chambers. one for skimmer and some LR and the other for return pump.

    i havent got very far at the moment. have drilled the hole for my over flow that will be in the corner. built overflow box and painted the back panel of display black so far. only thing needed still is the plumbing and the lights and i am good to go. also have a bit of cleaning to do still in the tank it self. also whant to thank @ccwilke for his assistance in the building process

    I hope you are going to keep your boyu running as well and its probably for the best leaving the cleaner out with such few fish in there. Just out of intrest, what anthias are you putting in?
