    Hi,

    Im days away from moving the contents of my current tank to a Boyu LE1500 L

    My current tank is 60x60x75cm est. 8years as freshwater tropical(previously x4yrs sps reef marine)
    Sump filtration marine pure, ehiem bioballs, large pore sponge in a very fine mesh bag.
    Return Pump ehiem compact 3000
    Light, EcoTech Radion XR30
    EcoTech Vortech MP30W
    Pressurised co2 ph controlled regulator
    Substrate 2-4mm polished black pebbles
    Fish:
    Discus, corys, chain loaches, dwarf L333 and L002 Plecoptera,
    Cherry Shrimp



    The new Tank: Boyu LE1500L
    1500x30x90cm

    I'm now planning to back light as you can see the translucent film.

    The pic of driftwood gives an idea of the size of the tank scale, the aluminium pole
    Then to the left is the width of the tank, the seat depth is approx the depth of the tank,
    The height of the polycarbonate panel is approx4" or 100mm lower than the height of the tank.

    Hi Keithgh, Ill have to scan them haha, Yes I have one pic of the tank that shows the EcoTech, I used to run a 250w MH Giesmann, I did buy my EcoTech gear from those guys - when they have sales no one can beat them.

    I may be looking to use a MP40w vortech in the new tank

    I'm in the Pooraka area, father was from Stall then his family moved to Ringwood when he was a teenager. My brother lives in Glenroy. I grew up in Adelaide but have Victorian roots.

    I lived in Hadfield next to Glenroy for many years. Now living on the coast 75k south of Melb, it was very hand when I had the 5ft tropical SW tank and looked after the cold SW tank at school where I taught.
