SPS Dominated Evolution Aqua

Evolution Aqua 1200S - approx 48" x 24" x 18"H - roughly 95G including sump.

The cabinet/stand is nothing special. But the display is really nice. The work on the glass and silicone is excellent.

Sump area.

Ecotech Marine Vectra M1

Deltec SC 1456 - rated for 1000litres

ATI Hybrid - *still to purchase*. Will be 8xT5 and 3x75watt LED clusters

1 x MP40
1 x Tunze 6095

DVH All-in-one Biopellets.

ATI Essentials. This is a new offering from ATI; it is essentially similar to balling lite.

This will be a very slow build. I have literally no time. 3 kids...4th on the way...and work being ever so busy. In fact I was forced to accept delivery of the tank several weeks early as the LFS is sadly closing down and my tank had already been sitting in the store over 4 or 5 weeks.

The current 47G tank was moved across the room last week so that I could accept delivery of the new tank and could transfer the stock over slowly. Both tanks will be running until I am satisfied the filtration is ok and the parameters stable.

Fish stocking:
The fish stock will be kept low-moderate. One of the reasons for the upgrade was so that I could keep a Regal Angel and a Convict Tang as well as provide more space for my feminus wrasse.

Nice Sahin, just got the 1500 pro recently myself. You won't be disappointed.

Very nice looking tank. I've seen them in the flesh and they certainly look well made.
Are you going to be adding a background?

Wow Sahin, this is going to be SWEET! I can't tell you how envious I am of your 18" height, we'll have the same footprint but that extra 2" will be great.

Mate you've obviously got time! Maybe add a telly to your list of purchases?

But seriously, looks really neat. Look forward to seeing what you do with it!

I don't care what it looks like or what you put in it Sahin. It's just good to have you back with a fresh start and a cool upgrade mate

# I give it 6 months tops before i regret saying that when Sahin starts all his sneaky lying stuff about what he really has in the display........

Don't muddy up that pretty tank by adding water/coral to it. Just leave it as it is!
