Tank is 59 cm high and I have a choice of ocean water, I can choose from Tasman or Pacific, the water is not at tropical temperatures here, however it is in OZ and they have amazing reefs! The underwater life here is quite a bit different! bit of experimenting going on! maybe if I warm the water, it is from the same sea then I get something else LOL! if it fails, and i can't get decent test results, I can empty it and use red sea coral salts mix! i was planning on a multitude of rock, some deep, some shallow, some from pools, we have a lot of nicely growing volcanic rock also and even some I find online and in the store - bit of this, bit of that! I have no idea what coral I want yet, I pretty much like them all so wanted to keep my options open, get the rocks sorted and have controllable lighting for the corals but only once I sort the water parameters!
I told them to look at the most powerful LED
's and make sure I can control them! will see what options there are on Monday! i just need to pay for the actual LED
's - wiring and fitting is free!
what do you mean optics or not?

is the closest to me, this is on the Pacific side but I can just as easy go in the other direction! (I will go FAR from the swimming areas) bear in mind that NZ is not very populated!
I pretty much just want to bung in some water and see if i flood the place! still clueless! give me a few months!
