    Well tank has been up and running for 2 days now and is looking okay.
    At the moment the current live stock is as follows:

    Blue Zoas
    Pulsing Xenia
    Kenya Tree
    Green Shrooms
    Red Shrooms
    Lumo GSP's
    and some macro Algaes. All the above are frags that came from my main tank, I will be adding a Florida Ric this afternoon as well. :)

    Substrate is about 3 cups of Fiji Pink Aragonite and there is probably a total of 200g of Live Rock.

    Just running it as is for the time being, but am thinking of removing the sponges etc in the overflow and replacing with GAC, Phosguard and Purigen in the future. It will be a learning curve as I go along as maintaining a stable system in such a small volume of water is going to be a challenge.

    Water changes will be done 1 cup every second day. Topping off with RO will have to be done manually, but so far it doesnt seem to loose a table spoon in evaporation so not going to be a problem.

    Once I know the system is stable I will be adding a Sexy Shrimp and one or two Panda Gobies or a single Clown Goby.

    Will post an updated pic a bit later today. :)

    Nothing to hectic for now, just testing the waters, so to speak, for now. Will look into serious scaping etc as time goes by.
