    After a pretty catastrophic tank failure I am slowly but surely getting things going again. At least I hope so...

    Looks good. Glad you carried on after a failure
    Is that blue thing on the right a sponge?

    @KSreefster - 24G tank. I have a bunch of matrix in the return pump chamber (in filter socks). Two 3 chamber filters at the back. Running filter floss, additional matrix, purigen bags and seachem sea gel. Multimedia reactor with vertex bio pellets. Skimmer. Two jebao wp10 wavemakers, one set to making a wave and the other one for flow at the back. (Thanks @Hails for the hint). Auto topup unit. STC-1000 temperature controller running heater and a modified PC fan. All the pumps hooked up to an inverted + deep cycle battery.

    Stock: yellow watchman goby + pistol shrimp, cleaner shrimp, boxing shrimp, blue legged hermit crab, 2xemerald crab, turbo snail, mexican turbo snail (has a flap), nassarius snail, some other slug (hitch-hiker), pom pom crab, blue spotted sandsifter, true percula clown, six line wrasse, midas blenny, zoas, plenty striped mushrooms, hammer coral, candy cane, red bubble tipped anemone, frogspawn, tube worm with zoas, blue sponge, GSP, kenya tree, xenia, pincushion, polyps, torch coral. Think that is that.

    Can post more/closeup pics if anyone is interested.

    @459b - Yes it is. A real one. Been going for around 10 months. Had some scares where it didn't like the flow.
