    Hi there

    I was fortunate, or maybe unfortunate enough to get a 100 liter tank for free two weeks ago. It is a running system and the move was made trying to keep as much of the old water as possible. All this was done in under two hours.
    This is the type of tank with all the filtration happening inside a compartment at the back of the tank. Current filtration starts of with a protien skimmer, some sponge, a refugium with a CLF light, some LR rubble and then a 700 liter per hour pump.
    Current stock in the tank is 10 fish, two snails, two hermit crabs, one anemone, one anemone crab, a small piece of coral and about 8 to 10 kg of LR.
    The substrate is a mix of crushed coral and about 2cm deep at the most.
    Lighting is via 4 T5 24 watt tubes.
    The coral is attached to a piece of live rock that I added to the tank about two weeks ago, but it has not come out yet.
    Inside the tank is a small power head that delivers 500 liter per hour. Not to sure about that figure.
    I think the tank is overstocked and some of the fish must go.
    Any advice will be welcome.

    Hi there and welcome to MASA :thumbup:

    I am also still a little green but I must admit 10 fish is a little cramped. What kind of fish are in there sir?

    Thanks @459b, I did manage to post some pics of the fish in the ID forum.

    The pics above are all the fish that have to move. Will post them in the For Sale forum soon.
