    Hi Guys, I started with a Boyu TL550 and after two years(January 2013), I decided to upgrade to a 1000 Litre Tank. The journey has been long and I have made a lot of mistakes which have reduced ever since i discovered this forum(MASA) which has a lot of people who are willing to help and a lot of helpful material. So I have decided to create this thread of my tank so that you guys can see what my tank looks like and you can also assist me where necessary.

    I have the Following Hardware
    Tank
    Display Tank 2m x 70 wide x 80cm (deep)

    Lighting
    I have 3 x 250watts Metal Hallides Solarmax


    Wavemaker:
    Jebao wp40
    Seio m2600

    Protein Skimmer
    Reeftek TS4

    Other Hardware
    hailea Ozonator
    UV
    Carbon Reactor
    2 x 300watt Heaters
    Seneye

    Thanks Guys, I plan on adding more rocks though but the thought of aquascaping just makes me procrastinate even more

    My First Anemone

    I got this magnificent last week Friday and he seems to be settling well, I am feeding him a lance fish (a quarter every other day). Any other suggestions/ tips of how you guys feed and maintain your anemones will be appreciated
