That is amazing! This is my goal one day, when I'm big
Tank going along, not much to report:
Stunning sized corals. That's not a Lamarck angel is it?
No, semifasciatus and bellus are the two Genicanthus in there.
Looking very nice ...
Tank on autopilot the last few weeks, too many social commitments on the weekend just before everyone goes away, some random pics:
Also been keeping busy upgrading my coral qt’s light. Just because it is a fun thing to do, tried to mimic Radion AB+ schedule, l based on the G3 chip wattages and percentages for AB+, came out quite close (have to still put in the warm whites, didn’t have any lying around), top pic of tank is with Radion on AB+, bottom with DIY lights:
Tank on autopilot, but everything going well, looks like regal angels have paired up:
And a random fts:
Not bad for a local blenny my 4 year old daughter and I caught in Umhlanga, think it is a ringneck blenny, Parablennius pilicornis:
Hotdog how do you manage to keep your anem in the same place without it doing it's own thing? And the tanks looking great man!. Glad things came right.
Just enough light (have 100w Cree LED directly on it) and lots of indirect flow and keeping it on a pedestal like that seems to work. It did walk in the first month or 2, but nothing major. All the flow pumps are very far away from it on other side of tank.
Oh I see perfect thanks bud
Grrr, just when you think the scaping is now final, a rock falls over randomly. Then if you try to put it back you can’t find the exact same spot and angle it was in, and the balance just looks off in its new position. 2 hours later and this is what you end up with:
Honestly Pieter, it still looks good. In a couple of days you will be used to it
Haha, thanks, gave me the opportunity to move flow pumps around too, and take out the big bubble coral that was being nipped. So not all bad, but it is a frustrating exercise. Then when everything seems good, my wife comes into room and says that particular rock looks out of place and should not be there and it all starts over again.
Two new fish in qt, a pintail (Cirrhilabrus isosceles) and a rosy scaled (Cirrhilabrus rubrisquamis):
Random pic drop, refugium almost cycled enough to be connected to display:
Pieter where did you get all those macro algae’s? I’m in serious need of an abundance of them!!!
Talk to @ScubaLover22 , he should be able to help
Cool will do. Thanks!
