    Welcome to MASA
    Tank looks good
    What fish are those? Is that a sergeant major?

    Thank you. Yes it is. The yellow one is a Flagfin Angel. Then there is a common clown and african clown and a nice dwarf lion fish.

    Hello and welcome.

    The flow in the tight hand corner, is it sufficient enough to prevent dead spots where settlement will gather?

    I have a 10800 liter a hour pump which blows in the opposite direction and the othe side has a 13000 pulsing wavemaker. I also make sure that I dont overfeed and all that is given is consumed by the fish
