Here's a sneak peak

Very wet now, all coral in and fish. Just need to glue a heap of coral down and get all the stuff out of the frag tank that I know I'm keeping.

Monster effort. Set-up looks great.

Amazing that such a well built and thought out tank could be put together in such a short timeframe. Well done :clap:

Thanks mate, going away for 3 weeks with some long flights allowed for some good planning.

I'll post some more pics up tonight once I get some more coral placed. The tangs are so funny, they are loving it. They must really be squashed in a 4ft tank

There actually isn't much room left, I have to find space for about 30 more frags. Frag sections still full.

Geeez, can't believe you only went for a 6x2.5x20... :poke: :poke:

Even the uni tank will be bigger than that :poke: :poke:

Just teasing, looks good.

We hope to be wet in the next few weeks :D
There's something fishy going on....

Thanks guys.

Here's an update from today. Tidied up the electrical cabinet, put the hood panels on that my mate cut for me. Still need to do the sides as its not perfect. Didn't get time to put more corals in.

Put the other jebao wp40 in, wow!! These things move serious amounts of water, they put the vortechs to shame. It's a bit wild in the tank but I'm sure the coral will like it. I can't have the jebaos up full or it blows the hammers around ha ha.

More biopellets in the reactor and fed the outlet to the skimmer, so temperamental the vertex. It's really not as easy to setup as the bubble king was.
Pretty happy with how it's coming along, might be time to test some water to

Here's what u all wanna see
