Hello everyone. My first thread here. Been always using this site for general knowledge but this time I decided to start up my first build thread.
8 years ago I decided to start a small 30L nano marine which was fun, then always upgraded along.
This time I have decided to go for the Redsea Reefer 525xl which is a huge improvement over my latest 300L setup (without sump).
I will be posting pictures and videos of my journey. Hope you can also comment, give better advice and also criticize if need be :)
Here is the first picture of when the aquarium arrived.
More pictures coming soon..
