    Here's my new project :smile: P1010578 (2).jpg

    Needs a lot more corals though. Will add pictures as I change things.

    I really like the TMC Sig range, especially the 900 size, this is a tank I am contemplating getting.

    How old is your set up?

    Pop up a write up ref your equipment list, your regime, parameters & livestock.

    What other plans do you have for your tank?

    I'm not a massive fan of aquaroche type rocks until they colour up & are filled with corals & then they can look really smart. I have a mate who had the saem rock as you & I was not a fan but his set up is 2 years old now so really coloured up & full of corals & it looks mint

    Current sump setup is
    3kg biohome ultimate, net with RoPhos and net with carbon in second chamber
    Bubble Magnus Curve 3.5 skimmer and 300w heater in the third chamber
    Return pump forth chamber (and clean filter sock soaking)
    This seems to be working well but biohome ultimate apparently needs a few months to work properly. I am keeping an eye on it, both phosphate and nitrate are 0.

    Nice tank mate. Im looking at the posibility of changing to either one of these or reefspace 900. The build quality of the stand seems better on these but i like th fact the door lifts off completely on the reefspace. Hows your experiance with it all sofar? Noise, sump design, build etc

    Really like it the only real noise is the skimmer, but the sump design has to be worked around. the second chamber for the skimmer is just to small.

    Any chance you could tell me the width of the 1st chamber to the right of your skimmer would a skimmer fit in?

    That chamber is too small for a skimmer capable of the tanks size, better to use for live rock rubble or similar

    Awesome looking tank John! Thats just how I want mine to look when I eventually set it up in a few weeks time...

    How much water do you loose through evaporation with this tank? Do you have any mould issues at the back on the wall?

    No mould issues behind tank, it's about 4inch from the wall so there's good air movement . I am getting through about 20 litres top up a week.
