    Hi All,

    So it's that time again settled in a new home and room again to get back into a new 100L reef.

    Love the AquaNano style and range so went for the 60/100. Bought from a fellow reefer with lots of goodies.

    System Overview:
    Tank: AquaNano 60 (100L)
    Cabinet: Inspire 60 Walnut/Black
    Lighting: Evergrow IT5040 (New Upgrade) Nov '16
    Heater: Aqua One 150W
    Pump: Eheim Compact 1000 (New Upgrade) Oct '16

    18/06/16
    Fine grade Tropical Marine Sand washed and added
    Saltwater added
    System now cycling and getting up to temperature.

    Live Rock added 9kg at moment before I transfer my other tank over.

    Water is crystal clear after a week good flow and filters doing the job with Aqua One 1C carbon doing its job.

    Yes picked it up recently for a good price. Came with other bits extra pumps heaters, D&D refractometer, uv steriliser 200, reef and saltwater test kits and lots of other bits of supplements and treatments. Two common clowns, six line wrasse and 2 Damsels along with false rock and a few CUC.

    I plan to make it a replica of my mini reef but BIGGER

    Thought it's about time for some upgrades so I have changed the standard Aqua One pump (Moray 480) for a Eheim Compact 1000.
    Wow what a difference it makes to circulation and surface water movement through my spray bar!!!

    Next upgrade is the lighting just about to order the IT5040 evergrow......
