Thanks so much for the feedback, il have the canister on order tonight, can't wait to get my setup finished and functioning, cheers again

Your very welcome. I'm a little sad that more people don't respond to posts in the equipment forum. If you want more opinions about setting up your tank you'll probably get tons more people to respond if you make a thread in the saltwater reef page. It's always good to get opinions from different people.

I m using external filter 1400l/h flow with uv filtration strictly for biological filtration and additional external filter in hood for chemical& fizycal. No sump. It's 230l tank set up 6 months ago. So far it's ok. Parameters ok, fish and few simple polips are happy. Good luck with your set up.
