    Started building a quarantine set up after all these years of shooting from the hip.

    So important yet I've neglected it for so long.

    Had this old tank which is scratched to pieces laying outside so decided to revive it and add some canisters. You'd be amazed at how much equipment you gather over the years!

    Will run 1 of the 3 compartments with chaeto and get some fan worms going for fussy feeders should I make an impulse buy.

    I'll use the other 2 compartments for copper treatment (I haven't medicated a fish in YEARS but when you have powder blues and goldrims it's best to be prepared!

    Added one of these, I've always wanted a navarcus but I've never found one small enough! Bingo. Now to see how the other Angel's take to it.

    thats my next step, to get some test kits.

    i want to re-add my calcium reactor which ive had decomissioned since the pump sprung a leak due to a cracked casing, dosing is done according to feel currently (which is a bit dangerous).

    ive never needed to really test before but i think as my sps are growing so nicley its important to start doing so.

    Been busy fixing my calcium reactor, the pump that it came with couldent be repaired as the casing was cracked. So still good to be used but it's not watertight.

    I have always found a carx beneficial and I've seen things go south without sufficient dosing. So this is an important area for me.

    I've actually ordered myself a pacific sin AC4 reactor with calcfeeder pro.

    Will use a degassing chamber and link a algae reactor onto it in time.
