    gutted

    well i got both screens up and running and the tank was looking very good ,
    came home a week ago to find the tank had cracked and there was hundred gallon of water all over the floor , any way managed to save most of the live stock . lost a nice yellow tang ,sailfin blenny , purple file fish and some very nice corals . i also lost all the nice green algae id just grown , floor has had to come up and be re done iam on with all the building work .
    the next tank will be 54in by 28in by 36in high its around 200 uk gallons and i will be running the filtration with two , look a like sm 100s , i can't get the nova light units over here in the UK so i will have to sauce another t5 set , think I've found one just a bit higher at 7 in .

    Sorry to hear that.

    Have you considered an acrylic tank?

    Supposed to be a lot stronger than glass.

    hi SM hopefully no leaks it will be out of 15mm glass ,
