Second attempt at a first marine tank!

So here it is guys, my second build thread! I purchased a second hand juwel 180 from my LFS for a very good price, it came with a prizm skimmer and nexx filter with the standard juwel light.


I felt that this was still a bit small as I really wanted a FOWLR that could hold the following:

-Dwarf Angel
-Picasso Trigger
-Purple Tang
-Papuan Toby Puffer
-Pink Throat Wrasse

Also the girlfriend was moaning as she wanted a white tank and cabinet in the room. So cue the next bargain from a fellow forum member.

I am so happy with this purchase. I'm yet to find any scratch marks on the glass and I've been looking thoroughly today! It also come with a tmc skimmer and big external filter. Although I do plan on going with the MCE 600 I think it'll be alright with the TMC one I got with this tank and also the MCE 300 I've just recently purchased for the Juwel 180!

Anyway I know people like a few shots of the tank so they will appear in the next post!

Should be getting wet in a couple of weeks so watch this space!

Just need to find the £300+ for the live lol!

How big is this tank?? Looking at the pic i can probably say that the tang, wrasse, and trigger need larger tanks to survive in
