    After a chat with the misses and a bonus coming up im 99% sure I'm going to sort the aips out by tieing it in with an upgrade :). I'm thinking 3x2x2 at the moment. Still thinking about set up equipment etc. The sps bug hasn't really bit me so it will be like my old tank Lps and soft.

    If thats the case you want to look at the aqua medic percula range. They do a 90 which is 3' & a 120 which is 4'. Built in rear filtration & circulation, heating, etc

    No not yet pal, had some bad news with the tank when a small pair of hands but a full tub of pellets and a full tub of flake in! Lost all corals and the iridis. Clownfish got white spot and stopped eating for a day or two. Fortunately they have picked up and seem back to normal now. All I did was feed more smaller amounts, also the uv prob helped. Tough little *******s!

    Tank is slowly getting back on track but I've lost my desire with it, with the Aips and now this. Still love the hobby tho so I'm thinking of setting my old rio 125 back up and keeping soft/lps. Then I can save for the upgrade and still keep my fingers wet :)
