    WOW. really attractive prices. :thumbup: I believe that the ratings are very true according to my research and feedback from other tunze users across the globe. not like most other brands that go way over the top on their ratings just to sell.

    i want some TUNZE..... now

    i wonder how it's calculated anyway?

    This central overflow was used because the was no space to use the wall over flow because the tank sits flush to the back wall. Essentially it is a top and bottom suction type over flow with a flow rate of 1500 liters ( the one in the picture is pushing well over 2,200 l/h) with a 40 mm down pipe and screw connection pipe is also (1077.100) is also needed with a 55 mm outlet hole through the floor of the glass. This overflow is silent and runs without any hassle at all.

    Yes, the 6095 can be controlled by the 7092, 7095 and 7096. If you have the 7095 that is fine but it is more expensive to buy and the 7096 has more features.

    Hi there Rossreefer
    There are 4 x 54 watt 14k Gieseman and 4 x 54 watt 22k Gieseman tubes and the light fitting was made by Reefinmates.
    I will post updates in 6 months time again. I only made the tank and set up the Tunze equipment. The owner does it all himself.
    All the best for the holidays.

    George
