    So after a wait of about 6 weeks Nick (ACS) and Paul (FitFiltration) have got everything together and delivered my new tank.

    As with PaulM's it'll be a 2x2x2 Rimless/Braceless in normal glass and for now a black background due to a small mix up! (This will be fixed over the next few days!) The X-aqua looks even funkier in the flesh!

    I still have a few bits to buy (given its going to take a few days to run off 250/300litres of RO water) so I have that time spare to pick them bits up

    Lighting - Teszla unit it's small and sleek looks pretty nice over the tank atm
    Skimming - Skimmerless for a month or to
    Circulation - Provided for now by my to koralia 900/1600 from my current tank
    Return Pump - Eheim compact 2000

    With this in mind I'll pop up a few pics in abit!

    Looks very smart, got any photos of the light unit on? Should be nice being able to program white and the two blues independently.

    Awesome! It's a shame the hanging kit for the light isn't longer do you think you'll have a problem with light at the front of the tank? From my experience it saves you cleaning the front glass at least lol.

    Be great when this is salty.

    Theres at least another 1 or 2inches of bracket mate I just dont trust the plastic nut/bolt to hold the fitting that far out, to fix this I'll pop to the local DIY shop and buy 2 nuts / bolts and some washers :)
