Re: Eek ... #4
Its a Seabray custom .

23 inches deep , 16 wide and 43 long.

Lots of room in the stand for the wiring and kit ...

Not quite sure how i'm going to mount my halides on it , more tinkering needed ...

Its got a nice corner weir , but i need to install a durso standpipe to stop the gurgle.

Stand and hood are in a nice oak finish.

Re: Eek ... #6
What's that, about 250 litres?

I'm having trouble mounting my halides on my nano. The felt pads have worn and they don't seem to grip well. Making some nice cree LED lights soon anyway, just waiting for the heatsinks.

Good luck with the setup!

Nooo, it's more like 3 1/2 feet!

EDIT: Sorry you're talking about height on stand, I thought you meant length.

Re: Eek ... #8
Its 5 inches shy of 4 feet ... can't get any bigger in the space i have.

It comes with a trickle filter , that i don't need , anyone want to buy it for their trops or coldwater ?

It's an Amiracle Trickle Filter ... i'll get some piccys tomorrow.

Re: Eek ... #9
Flippin' 'eck H, I thought mine were tall but they're a 'mere' 57 inches You're going to have to get yourself a mini stepladder like I have! And a snorkel. Actually maybe you ought to 'borrow' one of those red and white life rings from work and send Mrs H on an RNLI training course, just in case ... I'm going to have to invite myself round for tea and doughnuts when it's up and running
