Thumbs up First time Marine tank

Hi All,
Have just added a couple of fish to my new marine tank, just a Yellow Tang and a Coral Beauty.
i have been setting up the tank for a couple of months and fell in love with all the invertabrates coming out of the live rock.
I live in Sydney Australia and have found the forums on this site invaluable in setting up my tank.

Thanks for that, i love the tank, i actualy brought it from eBay because it was so different.
I think the last person had it set up as a reptile tank.
When i got it i put on the antique style locks and latches and set it up for the marine aquarium.
Everyone i have showed it to loves it because it is so unique, its definetly hand made.
Its been a lot of work getting everthing in there and up and running but it realy was worth the effort, it really stands out.
