Filtration

Upgraded the standard kent skimmer to a Tunze 9004 which fits snugly in to chamber 3, and is much better at skimming that the original unit.

Lighting

I have now upgraded from the compact T5's and moved to 120W full spectrum LED's
Blues turn on for 1 hour at 11am, then whites from 12 noon till 7pm, blue's will stay on till 10pm.

Flow

A month after setting up the tank i swapped out the standard interpet powerhead and upgraded to a Jebao WP10 with controller.

Though i am thinking of increasing the flow again.
