    Hi All

    I finally upgraded a bit, from Ibox to a Boyu 550.Learned a lot with the Ibox, and now I can take it forward to the new tank.

    I used all the LR in my Ibox and also used about 50% off the water that was in and added it to the new tank. I also added the the two clowns and all my coral slowly into the tank.

    I have been adding Stability for a week, and all looks great, I had very little die off from my LR.

    Skimmer is working great as well.

    Update Time

    HI All

    Its been a while since I have updated this Thread, and seeing that my worked has slowed down a bit, I can update it now. :thumbup:

    These Pictures were taken a few weeks ago, nothing much has changed except I have done a DIY Auto Top Up Unit, which I'm very proud of. ;)

    I like your first DIY.

    Almost time to let the regal move on to a bigger system :(
    It grown a lot. From R1 coin size to what it is now.

    HI @RiaanP

    Ya I know, it was the size of a R5 Coin when I bought it, now it double that size. I will sell it off once it get to big for my system and get a smaller one again. ;)

    Hi All

    Its been the worst week and half for me, and my Tank. our Electricity went off on Sunday, we had a power surge, and it blew all the equipment in my Tank, I also lost all my fish. :(

    All my coral seems ok, but they are also looking like going down hill. All I have going in the tank is a return and a heater.

    I still waiting for insurance to decide if they going to pay me out. I some how need to find some flow pumps, until the insurance pay me out:(
