    Well I have just put down a deposit on a new shallow tank, cabinet with sump, on the threat of death by my wife if I dare sell up again lol, so it looks like I am in it for the long haul this time.
    It is 48 x 20 with a 15" water depth and a large sump which is roughly 44 x 16.
    So the count down is on.

    Scape looks excellent, if being slightly critical the plate on the far right looks a little out of place, but I had the same issue with mine.

    My advice would be run a phosphate reactor from the off. Personally i don't think aquaroche leaches phosphate but has a high affinity for it in the early stages before releasing it back, obviously no proof of this but just how I saw my tank develop.

    Also expect some alk and mag drops as the aquaroche gets into equilibrium with the water.

    What are you planning in seeding it with?
