    I have kept freshwater tropical fish for many years now (Not telling how many) and have now decided to venture into the marine world. Dorry Pets is building and installing my setup for me.

    My stand, sump and skimmer have been delivered. Hopefully the rest will be delivered and installed very soon.
    Specs of my marine tank -

    DT - 1.5m x 700 x 550 10mm sides & 12mm base
    Euro bracing and cross brace
    Left corner overflow
    Sump - 1.5 x 500 x 380
    3 chambers with an additional chamber for ATO
    Light in sump for chaeto
    Reef Octopus Bubble Blaster 2000INT rated for 800lt
    HX-6540 wet/dry return pump
    2 x SEIO Prop 1500
    CaribSea Special Grade Reef sand for DT
    Playsand for DSB


    Lighting will be an ATI Sunpower 6*54W T5 that it coming in a month's time.

    Pics of the stand, sump and skimmer are in an album on my profile page.

    Not sure what the inhabitants will be yet. That is the fun part!!!
