Its just been ordered today so wont receive it for a couple weeks but on the planning of getting a new tank ive been busy working in the house to make room for it.
Pic of where its going but have to remove the radiator and block up the window
Had to get a pic of Rach doing something
Now thats all done time to think about the equipment side of things
Tank as you know is 5x2x2 so im going to need a good sized skimmer so what better that saving up some money and getting a SUPER SHARK SK-2
Also im going straight in and pre ordered some pearls and reactor to go with it
Lights: Going for all T5 so was thinking of an ATI unit but looked at Tony B's thread and saw what he is using and im impressed so going to order one of those.
Thats as far as ive got so far and I will be keeping this up to date as I go.

The tank should be with me in a week or so as there was a mess up on the order but its all sorted now.
Slight change on the lighting: Going for a Hamilton unit which has 2x 250w SE lamps, 2x 54w T5 and built in moonlights
Will update again when there is a bit more going on

Went to my lfs and purchased a V2 pure RO unit and an extra 300w heater. Next on the list will be a super silent 5800 lph sicce return pump and 2 controllable sicce powerheads.
Will post some pics up tomorrow of the light unit all working apart from the 2 T5's which I need to get aswel lol
