    It's freshwater tropical, my last tank was a marine reef, but i always found to many water parameters to get to grips with. The marine fish are stunning though.

    How is your water temperature doing with this hot weather?

    not very good mate, got 3 fans running in the room, but temperature stil high,

    have you got any reef equipment you getting rid of ?

    water parameters are a pain in the a$$ but so far everything going ok with me, but to be honest mine at the mo is just fish only, looking to do reef in a couples of months.

    Looing good. About to order a smiliar set up myself. Orginally set up system as a marine tank and needed a sump filter, effectline won't drill the tank so had to go for another make. I've never been quite happy with the finish and now I've found some one who can drill them. Marine set up went by the way about 9 months ago now. Too much arsing around with water etc for me. So tanks now set up for malawoi ciclids. Lovely fish, just bugger cos they like to kick the crap of each other, all the time. Not having too many problems with temp cos my sump filter in my garage below my living room. TDI whats that filter system your suing I'm familiar with it? I also assume from the CO2 set up your going for plants in a big way? Finally anyone come across the intamk led lights? Got 4 for my tank they create a very good, modern effect if that what your looking for.
