    Taking it slow for me works. Dont want o go too much in corals and fish. Maybe 3 or for more fish then I am done. Corals also just a couple. Want them to give them space to grow.

    For me less is more.

    Got it from Electromannsa. Its a grow light for plants etc. Paid R750 for it (delivery incl.). They have various sizes etc. Looks a nice unit. Just to see how it stands up to the salt.

    I actually dont have much choice. I stay far from any salty LFS. So I only do purchases when I go through to Gauteng.

    If I can make a suggestion about the grow light and sump, I would suggest you hang a pic of acrylic or something to keep light spill off your skimmer. Before you know it your skimmer will be full of coraline algae due to the light spill, this effects performance and makes maintenance a pain.

    Will post some more pics this weekend. Hoping to add more corals in December. And maybe another fish or two. Looking for Narvachas and some wrasses.
