Well the new sump was built and in in dec. Guess i have been a bit lazy about posting. :56:

Got the new skimmer plumbed outside (mmm yes it is an internal)
Added phos and carb reactors plus kalk.
A nice db box to take care of all the little switches all and all i think it worked out pretty neat. Thanks to Adriaan and Edwan for the outstanding work and ReefInmates for the advice on who to get to make this happen.

Very Impressive. You can see that Adriaan knows what he is doing. How long have you had the setup now? I see one post said something about September 2008

I tell you what, you're set up to have an outstanding tank, with Adriaan and Reef Inmates you can't go wrong. Your tank is looking great already, keep us updated with loads of pics. :thumbup:

A Beautiful place!
Great setup you got there! What area are you in? I take it you're in KZN if you deal with Reef Inmates :p
Do you know about our reefclub meetings at the end of each month? If you've been there already, I was probably a bit :1:

Cool! Very NICE setup! Thanks for sharing! BTW: Very interesting fact that you plumbed the INTERNAL ReefOcto Extreme 250 as an EXTERNAL skimmer.... and it seems to be working 100% for you?
Otherwise - I see that you have gone full-out w.r.t ReefTek/ReefOcto Kit! You will NEVER be sorry!

BTW: I see you have a few SPS frags there. Are you planning to go FULL-OUT SPS? Or mixed garden reef?!?!?
