    Hi to everyone I have not greeted yet! Wee-Man wanted to know what kind of a setup I have, it's as follow-

    The tank is a 1,2 m 280L tank with a 60L sump/refugium. I have about 40kg's of Liferock, mostly Malaysian, some Kenian and a fine crushed coral substrate about 7cm's deep. In the sump I have a 20 w Full Spectrum light,2 Jebo Skimmers(Sucky Sucky!!!!!! Saving for a TS2!), a DSB, some Caulerpa and a return pump. In the hood I have 2x 54w T5's, One full spectrum the other actinic, a NO 40w actinic and 2x Fans.

    And lifestock is as follow:

    Fish:

    1 False Percula
    1 Watchman Goby
    1 Foxface
    1 Coral beauty
    1 Algae Blenny
    1 Bluestreak Cleaner Wrasse

    Invertabrates:

    2x Cleaner shrimp
    2x Hermits (Was sold as Blue-Legged Hermits, not so sure!!!)
    1x Anemone Crab
    1x Debelius Reef Lobster(No problems yet!)
    Couple of unknown snails

    Corals:

    Anemone(Not sure of species)
    1x Euphelia( Thanks Reefmaniac!)
    1x Sinularia
    Brown Button Polyps
    Green Button Polyps
    Some Pulsing Xenia(Thanks to Ed although not much left, Foxface started munching!)
    Blue Shrooms
    Star Polyps(Or do I have any left......?FOXY!!!!!!!!!!!)
    A lot of small tube and fanworms
