    Hi Butcherman,

    Looking at keeping LPS and SPS, but a pair of clowns but havnt settled on which type of clown, I love the Golden and Tomato clarki's and also the black clown, but still not sure.

    I need to get home this evening and learn how to program the ZT6600,

    I start propagating the most lucrative of Zoas, and things that are hard to find...;0

    Looks like a great start, rather start a tank thread in member systems. Are you also going to run sump less, I am at the moment and having success with around 15% w/c per week, also eliminates the need for dosing anything as I feel its much easier just to do a 15% water change than having to dose a 100 different stuff or set up reactors etc.

    im currently running sump less Franske, but also looking at getting an additional juwel internal filter box and converting it into an internal breeding ground for Copepods and amphiopods, with a bit of chaeto and an led light but the 15 to 20% w/c will also work, what reef are you keeping?

    Hi guys,

    So I am looking for a about a 1kg piece of nicely encrusted purple coralline encrusted rock, to assist in seeding my base rock, I think that this will help my system start up, as I have 18kg of live sand, and purple base rock, but I think its going to take a bit longer to get my tank where its needed,

    I am in the Fourways area, is there anybody else who is close who might be able to assist?

    Thanks guys...
