i should point out before i get a comment that this tank is 2 inches short of 2 foot wide but i like it as it makes the tank look twice as tall and less box shaped.

Ok tank has changed alot new corals and such, after selling the old corals as i was going to get rid of the whole set up after losing the tang i started marine with :wall: .
now tank is complete its run on a (hidden name) brand skimmer running carbon rather frequently 2 x 250 W mh globes though one is blown at the moment.
twice a week water changes as ive been adding corals(whenever i add something i tend to do a water change).
photo's will be up in 2 hours :) also new power head to come in the next few weeks.
