Hi All, I will be taking delivery of my new AquaOak tank in a few weeks time and have gone with the following spec but would value any opinions or changes you'd make. End goal is going to be a fairly basic reef setup with some of the usual suspect fish such as Clowns, sand sifting goby, pretty cleaner shrimp, anything else bright and pretty too that won't be a bully or outgrow the tank as I don't like the idea of rehoming fish when I can just stock correctly for my tank size to begin with. Corals will be fairly basic softies and anything with a nice swaying movement that is not too difficult to keep (not too sure on "feeding" corals as I always thought they h=just did their own thing and fed from bits floating by?) The tank has a central weir that is black and so my back glass will be painted black to match. I am aiming to have a return outlet in the two back corners of the tank and the rest of the plumbing is whatever it comes with as standard apart from I'm having a Durso fitted (can't make the room for any of the other options without the weir taking too much room up across the back. Lighting is a TMC V2 Luminaire 1200, which will be housed in the hood somehow (not an option to have an open top tank in my house). The tank has glass covers which will probably stay put so as to reduce condensation in the wood lid. LED is a must due to both running cost and also keeping heat in the lid to a minimum. Skimmer at the moment is a TMC Skim Pro 900 but the LFS also recommend an Aqua One EliteSkim 800 (they don't seem to stock much else?). I am looking into Tunze, Deltic and Bubble Magus though as these seem like popular options. Return pump is a TMC v2 3000, but again I'm looking at an alternative which I'm thinking may be an Eheim 3000. Circulation/wavemakers I thought the MP40 was a good option but found reviews that Tunze make a much quieter version and offer more control for less money, so a no brainer there I think! Ocean Free Hydra 50 Internal and Depurator (reduces ammonia and suchlike, I believe it may be through a process of witchcraft!! Joke, not quite sure how it works but apparently it just does). D&D Refractometer for testing. I will have to buy water from LFS ready mixed as an RO unit will make my water meter spin like a fairground ride! I've done the maths and it just works out better to buy water in. There will be 25kg of live rock and possibly some man made pieces if needed, 2 inches of sand bed roughly, DT is 320 litres with roughly 60 litre sump. The sump is a basic 3 section affair and I guess the skimmer will be in the first where the water comes in, then maybe some live rock and the heater(s) in the second and the return pump in the third? Any advice you can offer on how to setup (what equipment goes in and when), how to stock (again, what goes in and when), any changes to my ideas you'd make (bearing in mind I'm not a rich man, even less so after taking the initial tank price hit!), anything to particularly watch out for and of course the all important maintenance (i've been told that with my setup I should be doing fortnightly 10% water changes).
