 Hey  Mitts
 Thanks  for  the  suggestions  
 Sump  is  not  possible  because  the  tank  is  not  drilled.  
 Hangon  overflow  using  siphon  is  risky  and  last  thing  I  want  to  see  is  saltwater  on  the  hardwood  floor.  Landlady  will  have  a  heart  attack   Chuckle  
 But  then,  what  additional  benefit  will  a  sump  give  me  since  I  have  the  slimmer  inside  the  tank  already?  Agreed  that  equipment  like  heater  can  be  hidden  but  otherwise  what  additional  benefit?
 
 The  drilling  and  cabletie  step  seems  appropriate  especially  since  the  flow  will  be  strong.  
 Do  you  use  any  additives?
 What  other  maintanance  do  you  do?
 
 Any  tank  pics?

 as  you  can  see,  the  aquascape  is  not  yet  anything  to  write  home  about.
 the  pics  were  taken  last  night  when  i  got  home.
 I  added  more  sand  later.

 hehe  yes.  can  actually  have  a  toy  submarine  in  the  tank  Wink
 reason  for  not  going  only  long  is  because,  i  felt  the  front  to  back  depth  was  a  critical  factor  in  the  aquascape.
 
 However,  another  point  that  comes  along  is  that  every  small  thing  takes  on  a  giant  size  due  to  more  of  it  having  to  be  done.

 Ok.  
 Can't  find  the  peppermint  shrimps  after  I  initial  sand  addition.  
 Tank  has  cleared  well  as  promised  by  the  caribsea  people.  
 Skimmer  is  going  on  and  off  with  the  skimmate  production.  
 This  brand  has  been  touted  a  LOT  by  folks  across  and  hope  does  not  disappoint   ROFL  
 Will  be  a  great  disappointment  otherwise.  
 
 Will  start  with  the  lights  tomorrow  when  the  sun  rises  Smile
 Have  to  go  to  the  fish  market  n  get  loads  of  snails.  
 
 Time  to  start  feeding  the  tang  properly  as  well  since  it  is  on  just  on  nori  since  the  move.  
 
 More  updates  commIng.  
 
 Meanwhile  will  really  be  nice  to  get  some  Aquascapes  ideas  using  branch  rocks

 Hi  mate,
 
 The  additives  are  all  kent  products  which  is  dozed  using  Bubble  magus  dosing  pump.
 For  alk  am  using  calcium  reactor.
 Mine  is  a  500  liter  tank  with  120  liter  sump,  and  I  do  200  liter  water  exchange  every  third  week
 Am  still  working  on  scaping  my  SPS  and  eagerly  waiting  for  my  mazarra  LED's  to  come.
 Once  everthing  is  complete  i'll  post  the  pic  of  my  tank

 Ya  I  was  stuck  between  mazarra  and  radions.  
 At  one  side  total  integration  of  lights  and  pumps  if  I  got  radions.  
 On  other  side,  I  liked  the  versatility  of  mazarra.  
 Finally  went  with  mazarra  :)
 
 Which  one  did  you  get?  The  X  version  is  already  out  I  guess.  Or  did  you  get  the  razor?
 Which  set  of  mounting  you  planning  to  go  with?
 Most  important,  did  you  order  power  supplies  ?  They  are  not  included  when  you  buy  the  lights  as  default

 ok.  lights  installed.  
 Went  to  the  fish  market  to  get  snails  and  gave  in  tottally  to  home  minister's  demands  for  livestock  [i  was  totally  un  tempted   Chuckle  ]
 all  fish  eating.  Anthias  still  in  hiding  mode.  teritory  being  established  and  i  see  beaten  up  fins  already.
 
 so  what  did  i  get?  
 anthias,  yellow  tangs,  true  perculas.
 
 i  checked  the  net  and  did  not  find  any  installation  instructions  for  the  mazarra  so  decided  to  document  the  steps  for  others  who  might  be  using  the  same  LED  module.
 is  not  as  simple  as  the  AI  or  other  lights.  Sure  it  is  much  more  modular  and  flexible  but  quiet  complex  and  takes  a  few  hours.
 
 this  documentation  is  quiet  long  so  will  be  done  in  multiple  posts.
 I  decided  to  go  with  top  of  tank  mount  as  my  tank  is  rimless.
 Step  one.
 the  tank  mount  brackets.
 
 there  will  be  two  of  them  in  a  single  package.
 
 
 
 on  the  tank  for  perspective.  i  flipped  it  around  later  to  have  the  screws  facing  inside  the  tank  as  i  dont  like  the  screws  visible.
 
 
 
 with  the  first  column  attached
