    Time to upgrade again. [​IMG]

    Have been planning for this upgrade for the past 2 months. This setup will be done slowly.

    So here's the plan.

    1. Tank - 120cm x 60cm x 45cm Peninsula 4 side low iron glass, with Synergy Reef Shadow Overflow.

    Looks great. Can I ask you what size of return pump and overflow you will choose?
    I started a similar build.
