Nice job, very neat and a good match for the EA cab. Where'd you get it?

That what i considered... even a little 18" cube. Stick a radion 15 and run it on same cycle. If i could get over flows then even run it out the main sump.. there an idea lol

Been a bit absent due to work.

I have made a few changes. Had the option to get a pacific sun t5 hybrid so i decided to swap out the radions. In the 4 or 5 weeks i have seen improved colour and growth, i hope it continues

Also replaced the bm skimmer for a nyos 160 which does a nice job
Also added a couple of nero 5 on the back wall to improve flow particularly around the back of the rock work.

Anyway heres a few pics

Nice one, how are you rating the Neros so far?

They are excellent mate. To be honest i bought them to replace the mp40s as you know they provide a wider flow pattern but whenni advertised the.mps for £250 or 460 for the pair. no one was interested and as they only a few months old i wasnt going to give them away especially when i see 2 year old ones selling for £230

Anyway that's why i have put the neros on the back wall and put the 40s back where they were. End of the day im getting plenty of flow all round now thanks to the slight directional adjustment i can make to the neros.
