    You need the spirit level to go to the ceiling from the front edge of the tank. :rolleyes:

    So you can find the centre of the tank apparently.

    Brown paper off - check
    Board in place, ready to hang - check
    Cup of coffee - check

    These are really easy to hang, I could have done this, but not as central obviously. :rolleyes:

    Also, the units themselves are really well built and look really nice on the eye. Infact I am totally tempted to remove the top pelmet, as there is absolutely no need to hide them from site. :thumbup1:

    We have decided to go quite a bit higher initially, so as not to cause any light shock to the SPS corals, as Nev just reminded me (clever sod) that they can punch through to 40" deep and are equivalent to a 400w halide. :eek:
