It's looking good. You have some beautiful zoos! Do you feel the Nano stream helps? I haven't put one in mine yet and the flow seems real good without it.

MJSavage - The flow from the two pumps are good but I wanted more so I added the Nano stream. I only run one of the pumps though.

 

Shramj - Thanks I am happy with my zoos as well as it is quite hard to find nice ones here in NZ.

I need to change my PC's and get some new brighter ones and also change the 150w bulb to a 14k Phoenix. I'll also be getting a ATO in the next few weeks. like I said I am shifting in 1 weeks time so things will change although I want to keep the rock work like it is but the corals will be moved around to there permanent positions :D

Thanks for updating your thread ... I don't mind at all. I am really excited to see so many RSM owners posting their tank info, mods and pics ... Nice tank Land ... hope you can share the new setup when it is done ... I guess you did not like the stock hood huh? ...

There is nothing really wrong with the hood but I wanted to have more SPS so decided to get out my old Halide, plus I can get better colour out of my corals with a bluer bulb which I still have to buy yet am thinking of getting a 14k phoenix.

I have heard good things about the 14K phoenix ... especially for some zoas ... the color looks nicer ... I don't have SPS. But plan to get the green bird's nest one day (in 2008 for sure). I will consult you on dosing and other requirements when i get there :)
