For your tank size, you may not need skimmer as well.
Just do weekly water change and install good quality external filter. Eheim is the one I strongly recommend.

Thank you for your quick Antwort.Hast you come into your external filter all the original material what was inside when you buy anything inside, or do you have left in your external filter what Spezi Everything done purely and please can you also tell me how often I have the external filter clean machen.Ich am for your answer very much.

I love those lights under the tank. I have always thought that doing that adds a really modern look. Congrats on the split.

I use original material which comes with the filter and add some carbon media.
Filter has been cleaned once a month.

Great accent lighting! It shows up well during the day, I'd imagine it will be bright enough to light up the room at night.

Cool! I was watching you webcam and actually saw some guys working on it. Usually when I check it out the lights are off and I cant see anything. Just to let some others know if you want to see people on his webcam I was on at midnight central time.

Ching - I've been laying low enjoying the Chicago summer, so haven't been on RC in a while. You have made some excellent progress. I did not think the actual build could live up to the renderings, but it did and then some, amazing job and attention to detail!

Ching - looking great. If I ever go back to Thailand for paintball I will have to check it out.

With a tank this large are you planning on having some large school of fish? 40-50 Longspine/Blue eyed Cardinals would be AWESOME.

Anyways keep it up!
