    Don't worry, the back will be getting changed to a dark blue (just came with it so left it on for time being whilst I put it in place).

    Can't remember the make to be honest mate but it's glass and holds water (I hope) so should do the trick!


    I'm not going to sump this one for the time being. The sump on my last one never seemed to efficient anyway so thinking of leaving it how it is. It has a built in filter running along the top with a clear lid so this will house some cheato and carbon (maybe some rowaphos if needed) and then pack the other compartments with some LR rubble.

    The light unit that has come with it are some 25w LED lights. These will be scrapped with a new unit going underneath. Nothing too high powered as only planning LPS anyway with maybe a couple of monti's high up in a good few months time.

    Cheers Gordon...Unfortunately I won't be needing an ATU as yours was the only piece of kit I kept from my old tank. Shows what a great piece of kit it is though!

    At the moment I haven't started thinking about that mate. Mostly LPS though with a few of the easier SPS higher up. That could well change though.
