    Looks very nice, but in my opinion all those baffles are a waste of space. My sump does not have them and I had no issues with bubbles. Here is a pic of what mine looks like - easy :)

    My tank is a 4 foot, so I did'nt realy need much space in the sump.
    Added the baffles just in case
    Cool setup man. Do you have any pics of the tank running?

    That shallow tank is broken down again, moved to Witbank 2 months ago. Getting serious withdrawls here. Waiting for some more quotes on my new one, can't wait to set it up again. My live rock is kept "alive" in a foodgrade bin with pumps and airstone :)

    here is an old pic of it

    Join the guys at the east coast reefclub and find out who, what, where and how much ;)
    Or PM Mekaeel, Andreas, Lighty, Scubaninja, or any other Durban reefer and ask them where you can get it made up at the best price :)
