    I will never have a tank without this tang, its a keeper. Thank you! This tang is stunning but has an issue, its lip has been under developed and her beak sticks out quite dramatically. Its kinda funny..

    Hey bro. It is looking great! Very happy with the look of it, it has picked up some weight since we added it. It has been eating a mussel I just added to the tank, I have found if it does not have to compete with my wrasses then she goes for it.

    Some photos from my very brief time at home yesterday.

    @Damien , as far as I am aware, no, the copperband scavenges and eats mussel.

    Good afternoon reefers.

    While I am away for work again, I want to take some time to lay out the plans for the tank, I have not discussed what I am going to do with this tank.

    I have recently bought a few smaller corals, only zoanthids and lps pieces,they have done well so far and I look forwards to seeing them when I return from Namibia at the months end.

    I am especially keen to see how the zoas from america are doing as they are absolutely cool and colourful. Purple Monsters and King Midas zoas.

    Fish wise...the copperband is nuking a mussel every second evening and continues to scavenge, my wife has not reported it eating frozens yet.

    I am hunting 3 fish. 2 are easier to get and one is going to be my show fish. A female melanurus wrasse and a female bipartitus wrasse are the easier one's to get. The show piece fish is a Juvi Aussie Harlequin Tusk. Hmmmmm.

    The plan for when I am home is to replace bulbs in my dual T5 unit and do a good 100L water change. I have been away from home for nearly 2 months solid with only a few nights back, but the tank is still looking amazing, it is coming along nicely.

    The little midas blenny is full of attitude and wass swimming around 10 minutes after introduction. He is looking awesome. The leopard wrasse, as many wrasses do once they have substrate, has been hiding and chilling out. I am keen too see it popping out her head to say hello.

    I am strongly considering getting a Jebao crossflow CP-40. The maxspect gyres are just so damn expensive.

    I have been contemplating the same thing. The Jebao or Glamorca crossflow pumps are priced much better and from what I've heard their controllers are a bit better (to use).

    From my lfs, apparently they have stopped bringing in the Jebao CP 25 and 40 due to pump issues.

    I have the improved CP-150 I think, haven't had an issue yet.
