There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

Woo hoo! Another Profilux user :-) Looks like you and I are running almost identical equipment, although you've definitely got me beat on lighting. Those radions are nice!

i managed to download pictures for the equipments ( the rest) along with pictures for my Discus ( German Stendker ) and my Apistos, panda, wild caught Corydoras aeneus Black Venezuela, Amano, supper red cherry shrimps and more the list is growing every weekend a

one of the things i ve always hated in any of my setup the wiring issue,JUST CANT STAND THE AMOUNT OF WIRES FLOATING AROUND THE SUMP.

after looking at Red Sea Max 500 reef tank i liked their idea of having drawer in the setup where you can put all you wiring and access it by simply opening the drawer, THATS EXACTLY WHAT I DID WITHOUT BUYING THEIR TANK

I put my GHL controller in one of my tank drawers and when ever i need to check connections or loss weir i simply slid the drawer open to access behind the controller unit.

having said so my sump is far from neat and it is my next weekend project as the aim is to turn part of the sump into Nano like aquarium for shrimps (small size, but first i need to figure out how to isolate the return pump so it wont swallow all the shrimps, clearly i need to look into eggs crate with fine mesh will check ebay later for some goodies.

enjoy thanks
