I think you and @kimberbee should get together with your Barbies.  :-)

 

Seriously though, thanks the image.  I'm not good with the metric system.

Dalua Australia has gladly provided me with this amazing light! It's the Illumagic Blaze X Mini

Waiting for Coral - Tank Build
So here it is! What you've all be waiting for! The Sump is finally in the cabinet! Now to order the plumbing parts and we can start connecting everything up. Got the Jeboa DP-4 in there to measure it up in regards to how much space I have. I'll need to get a 4 chamber dosing container as I'll be running Aquaforest Component 123+ and Aquaforest Nitrophos Minus. Only weeks away now from getting the tank wet I hope!

My interest is already peaked and there isn't even any water in that tank yet.

Could you take a pic with a soda can, a cell phone beside it, or something so I can scale this correctly in my head?  I know you did one with a Barbie doll, but I'm really struggling to visualize the size here. 

 

Thanks in advance.

As requested! This is a small Mount Franklin sparkling water bottle. I think it's 450ml bottle.

She's plumbed! Finally got my hands on the pipes and cut today. The schedule80 was so thick it snapped my first cutter. Lucky for me Bunnings is just down the road and onto my next pair. Will cement it all tomorrow but this just gives you all an idea of things to come. Have a couple of DIY stuff I want to add before she gets wet. So excited!

So out comes the saw and drill today. Got the shelf in place now ready for me to start cementing the pipes. Also have something else in the works but I'll keep that secret for now hahaha.
