    Hi Guys

    After a recent prolonged power out I unfortunately lost almost all of my tank inmates.
    All that made it was the male clown and a few of my Ricordea Floridas.

    I took it as an opportunity to redo things a a bit more to my liking.
    Hence the decision to go BB and simplify the scape.

    Current inmates are :
    1 x male true percula (from the original setup)
    2 x goldie anthias
    1 x McCosker's flasher wrasse

    As far as equipment goes:
    1 x reeftek ts1 skimmer
    1 x life tech 2500 lph return
    2 x Seio's (1 x 620 ; 1 x 820)
    2 x 150W heaters
    6 x 39W t5

    Lighting spread as follows (front to back):
    geisemann pure actinic
    geisemann actinic +
    geisemann aqua blue +
    geisemann aqua blue +
    geisemann actinic +
    geisemann aqua blue +
    geisemann actinic +
    Hope you all enjoy the pics..
    Haven't vacuumed in while but water change coming up soon.

    Looking good man! Too bad the camera cant capture the colour of those orange zoas! Some good LR you got from Jason. PS, think you got your LHS and RHS mixed up :p

    hows the wrasse doing? Lol later on that day when we went on the marine road trip, I was thinking dont they need substrate to hide in.. Then I was picturing the fish swimming at full speed into the BB and getting a concussion :lol:

    he seems to be pretty happy..
    He's now the boss of the tank..
    Luckily the rock has some nice crevices (thanks Jason).
