    Morning Reefers,

    For some time now I have not had a tank in office (did not really enjoy the AIO nano) and did not intend putting a tank into my office as we have the large tank in the board, which we all enjoy. However, one of my collogues who had a tank in his office was promoted & his new office just cannot accommodate his tank – so he asked if I would like it?

    It seems it was just meant to be LOL - anyway the tank was set up in my office and I started making a few changes to the tank straight away (all the tank had was LR & 3 x clown fish)

    · Replaced the lighting with a AI Sol LED unit (with controller)
    · Added a BOYU MW-15 powerhead
    · Also replaced the edging around the tank (was black) to natural oak, to match my office
    · And finally replaced the boards around the tank (also so match my office)

    Tank build, weekly maintenance & aquascaping done my Nemo’s Janitors
    So the basic spec’s of the tank are as follows (tank been running since 1st April 2012)

    · 600mm Cube on metal stand (with skinny overflow)
    · Single AI Sol LED unit (with controller)
    · TS1 Skimmer
    · Two Little Fish’s Reactor with NP Pellets (split of the return pump)
    · Filter Matt & Bioballs
    · BOYU MW-15 powerhead
    · Return Pump is a Deltec H2 Ocean
    · R/O tank with level top switch

    Well tank is been in my office for about two weeks, added some Ricordea’s & now looking for Zoa frags (want to keep it simple). Currently have the following fish

    · 1 x Tailspot Blenny
    · 2 x Snowflake Clowns
    · 1 x Platinum Clown
    · 1 x Yasha Goby & Pistol Shrimp Combo (on order)

    Here are just two quick cell-phone picture to get started – will take some proper shots soon
    Cheers
    Michael B
