Amazing

i have kept a log of all the money weve spent but i dont ever want to add it all up might not love the tank so much , the power bill alone is around 1000 each quater . but its is really worth it !!!! i am about to up grade my little 6footer so there goes the budget again

very nice renae, I like it better without the overhead cupboards. has their removal effected your ability to cool your tank onhot days as I seem to remember you had extraction fans in the roof? has that big skimmer reduced your nitrate and phosphate levels? and have you turned your sump into a fuge?

tank still has the over head cupboards but we are hoping to change them as they are ugly.yes i have extraction fan in roof and house has ducted evap cooling so temp not huge issue , the big skimmer has made huge difference to nitrate , phos and my earlier issue with yellow water . the sump is also a fuge now but we had to make changes to livestock had hassles with bluetangs eating corals and clams.
