First time signing up, although have been reading a lot on here over the last few months.

Jumped feet first into marine after needing to look after my Dad's Redsea marine tank whilst unwell. The bug bit quickly. Went with a Waterbox 60.2 in my home office here in Belfast with an Octo skimmer, Octo Pulse2 powerhead and nerded it up with Robotank+ReefPi and a DIY peristaltic pump system for ATO and AWC from my garage below using various optical and float sensors. Plenty of help, parts and liverock from my cuz @cooksterni. Its been running well for almost 2 months. Thus far its 2 clowns, some Turbo snails and an emerald crab who is loving taking chunks out of the green hair algae.

I do have plenty of pics from the planning and build which I will try and get up soon.
