    Ok. Massive thanks to Alex and Rob for helping out today in the sump move. Tank was drained down by about 50ltrs then we moved the vision 180 onto the 260 stand while we took the cabinet apart and removed the sump.

    Sump is now empty and in place in the 260 cabinet and I have loads more room now for equipment.

    Reefloat has been put in place as has the ATC-300.

    Are you gonna add new LR as a "base" to your existing stuff (cos ain't you got corals growing on the LR you have now?)

    All the old LR is going apart from a couple of bits that I wont be able to remove the SPS from. There wont be much that cant be taken off.

    I have got a load of LR sorted from Paul, so going to add it all fresh then wait until I get things spot on before I move the corals in. I only took the sump out today and they had a right fit. I just dont want to have to move all the LR and coral at the same time.

    This way I can scape it and plan where everything is going when things are settled and move it over slowly. I still will be adding some peps to start with but thats all that will be in there for a while. A good amount of sand will be added as well to the new sand bed.
