Amazing setup. Very beautiful,
Is that a cannister filter?/ what are you running in it.
And how do you like the cerebrea

10L of Siporax is exactly how much you can fit into an FX6 and how much I have

I love the Cerebra. High quality hardware, interface, and software, nothing less from Vertex. Very easy to use, I calibrated PH, Salinity, and ORB within 30mins without manuals or videos. Everything is wizard oriented. has many pre-configured settings that you can use, for example small or large waves, lagoon, etc. modes for controlling your powerheads.

Cool the controller has great reviews from what I'm reading. Great idea on the siporax in the cannister, you can control how much flow going through it.

Thank you. It was a major learning experience for me. I have never done plumbing before or used an aluminum stand or ever owned a custom made tank. Overall, I am blessed and thankful I even came this far.

Miracles made the tank and the dimensions are 72x36x28. That's a white food grade plastic tank that I am using for my ATO.

You have a very nice set up right there very clean and organized. Not in a negative side but just my opinion I think you could do a better aquascape or rock work that matches the tank dimensions.
Keep the pictures coming!!!!

Thanks for the critique I tried the rule of the third's and a bunch of things discussed here: http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2217633 but I agree with you, I think it needs works. I will try a few things and take more pics
