    Well the time has come to start my new upgrade thread as the tank has been on order 4 weeks and my riffsystem is soaking in RO in the kitchen.
    Currently I am running a red sea130d, with various sps and lps. (will be up for grabs soon):-d But the upgrade willl be 28x26x24h, with x aquas rimless, braceless and 12mm glass.

    I have bought an ATi 24w dimmable light unit.
    2x mp10's for circulation.
    pump is a newjet 6000.
    Tunze auto top up.
    Buble magus nac7 skimmer
    and will be dosing so a kamoer dosing unit.

    This is the riffsystem scape, (not everyones cup of tea but I like this one)

    I will be keeping lps and sps again with a few select fish.


    I have been planning this tank since xmas eve.....yes xmas eve when the girlfriend agreed to it, so hopefully it will turn out to be as good as I hope it will as its has been planned for ages:biggrin:

    Well after a month of diy the house is ready for the tank to be set up.

    The cabinet is getting made this week so hopefully early next week I can start to get this tank finally set up.
