    Well it has begun:thumbup:


    I am taking out my substrate and replacing it with aragonite (white). Obviously this means that the reef comes out. Hectic job!

    I am upgrading my skimmer to a Reefocto 150

    I am making my DSB larger.

    I am lowering my MH's about 20cm, about 20cm from the water surface.

    I have buckets, rocks, containers, mess etc, everywhere.

    Fish are in a temp container with powerhead and live rock.

    Not a great way to spend a sunday evening!!! :yeahdude:

    Ok so the big job is done, fish look good after the ordeal. I have attached some pics to show you guys whats been happening. Im still not 100% happy with the new reef look but Im working on it. It definetaly looks better with the white substrate though. And that new skimmer is awsome compared to the old one.

    Check my pics in My photos (I dont know how to get them in here) hahahaha.

    Bet it feels lakka when the job is done, I'm moving a few days time, and am nervous, but looking forward to setting up the tank again. Just keep an eye on the water parameters, let us know what happens with it.
