    Welcome Mc. Why such a small tank? If this is your first marine tank I would recommend going bigger as its more forgiving :) .. If you come down to my side I can give you some chaeto

    Thanks I would love to get a bigger tank I'm just living in such a really small flat
    right now, and also don't have that much cash, plus I have already got the tank
    and pump so I figured I would just give it a try.

    It would be great to get some chaeto from you just need to get everything up
    and running first, will let you know when I need it thanks.

    Hi all its not much but this is what I have so far.
    Planning on spraying the back of the tank black to hide the filter and cables,
    Still gonna be a few weeks till my lights arrive.
