Great looking tank and stand!

So when do you think you will have the tank?
I am also looking at getting the 650 but maybe on the next batch that come in. Can you let us know how you go with setting up the tank etc from out of the packaging. From what I have read it can be a bit of a frustrating task getting the stand to go together.

Can't wait to see this develop. I currently have an Aquareef 400 all in one and am planning to go bigger (In the next 20 years :-D ). Saw these recently and look like a pretty enticing package. Hopefully you can help me to decide wether to go with one of these or custom. Enjoy Thursday!:cheers:

My LFS has a white 650-S set up now and jeez it's a big sucker. Top looking kit. Can't go past white IMO. The 3 door cabinet set up with the 3rd door for the chiller unit in the 650 is a good idea and the power unit makes life so much easier.

Awesome, I've got one of these on the way too... :pirate: thanks for the video showing the variable flow on the pumps, hadn't seen that before! :thumbsup:

Are the T5's that came with it the new RSM tubes or are they just half 10000K, half actinic as stated in the brochure?
