hi guys

this is just a little taste of my system...

tank size .800 x .500 x .500mm

2 x T5 24w (1 blue/ 1 white)
2 x T8 20w (i blue / 1 white)
2 x seio pumps (thanks to uncle garth)
1 x jebo skimmer (i know, i know. les is onto me about getting a TS1)
sump/DSB same size as tank with 12cm of sugar grain size sea sand... (live) and 5kg kenyan LR on a suspended eggcrate platform....
i also have 2 x 6500k energy savers over my sump containing cheato...
1 x 2000lph return pump
1 x 200w heater
15kg LR for main display

i am in the process of adding 2 more T5 24w (another 1 blue and 1 white) in place of the T8's and hope to add reflectors when i do this...
i am looking to add a 10000k metal hailide sometime early next year when finance allows. (i am still a student)...

the system currently contains a variety of softies and LPS and one sps... i hope to go fully into sps as soon as i learn more about them....

let me know what you think..

i only have 2 fish in the tank (1 goldie and a jumping bean).... i am looking to add one or two more..

i have a bit of a problem with aptasia and am looking for something that will naturally sort it out.. i think this tank is a bit small for a copperband and i am hoping to find some peppermint shrimps... can anybody help me find some??

Hi Tyson welcome to MASA, we love pics on this site, we neem to see the engine room too. The upgrade of a skimmer will make a big difference to your system.
