    Hi All,

    For sometime now I have wanted to set-up a tank at the office, but have always been concerned what the boss might say & also if I travel who would look after it?

    Then for my long service award the company gave me a brand spanking new JBJ 28g CF Quad & one of my colleagues purchased the same tank – so what to do but start a reef at the office.

    Specs are as follows

    Ø 28g (+- 100L)
    Ø CF Quad lamp (105 watts) with moonlights
    Ø Ocean Pulse Duo return pumps
    Ø 150watt heater
    Ø Mp 10 Vortech
    Ø Battery back up
    Ø ATO (being fitted this week)

    Tank was set up mid January (used cured Live Rock) & just introduced my first corals & fish – here are some pics (not the best, just used the local company camera)

    Time for an Update

    Well I thought it's about time for an update? Decided I was not happy with my Nano @ the office (just another nano with clown fish etc), so I made some changes.
    • Added more substrate
    • Removed the clowns
    • Changed the aquascaping
    • Got a new stand (redid the wiring)
    • Added Yellowheah Jawfish
    Here are some pics, hope you enjoy


    Cheers
