    Hi all
    I'm after a new openning tank for a replacement of current tank:
    http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=2390
    http://ukaps.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=2504

    Due to limited spaces a new tank must be 120cm w, up to 60cm d, and max h up to 60cm, or a total height of cabinet, tank, and light unit not more than 150cm. I consider purchasing an Arcadia overtank Luminaire:
    http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/ind...ucts_id=1065&zenid=5tvtpsendnivhb98df8laorto3.

    If to choose this unit, and assume tank height is 55cm, cabinet 70cm, I wonder when access to the aquarium or to the tubes, is it possible to have the luminaire tilts backwards, or I can't do that due to its height, and the only way to get around this is to remove the light unit out. I don't know the actual dimensions, how high can it go up to?

    Last week in PFK website mentioned a new model of Arcadia is due on sale very soon, it looks cool, and slimmer than the one shown in a link above. Is it any good and what are the actual dimensions?

    A possible tank: 120cm l x 60cm d x 50cm h, cabinet 120cm x 60cm x 60cm, and a light unit to fit in the total height.

    Can you give some advices where I can order a tank based on a personal spec., and a suitable light unit with a cabinet etc...?

    Any recommendations are welcome.
