Bamff 4x2x2 FOWLR for now!!

Hi all,
due to the my overly generous good friend Buckleys, I've been able to return to the hobby after about 15 years. I'm a bit late on my tank journal, as its been running now for about 5months, but I have taken photos along the way and definitely learnt a couple of things or two. Now its time to share my experiences and hopefully learn more along the way!

I can pretty much cut and paste from Buckleys tank journal as he gave me nearly everything he had!! :cheers:
So here it goes;

System type: FOWLR for now, patience and time until I'm confident to introduce coral without destroying them.

Strike up date: Late Feb 2016

Display tank: 1200 x 600 x 600 (430L)

Display Lighting: 2 X 250w MH electronic ballasts, 15000k AMD globes, and 2 x 4ft 54W T5 Reef-Spec Actinic 22000k (Redsea)

Sump: 900 x 390x 450

Refugium: 400 x 390 x 300

Support System:

System water: Natural sea water

Display Circulation: Aqua Medic Eco Drift 15.0

Return Pump: Ehiem 1260

Skimmer: Reef Octopus 800L Classic

Evapouration Top Up: Manual (for the moment)

Most LFS can order you a 18-20kg box from the collectors in cairns. Can't pick and choice pieces but do get a lot better rock with more life If that's what you are after.
