    All coral are doing AMAZINGLY well
    Was just messing around with the angle at which the light sits to try and adjust which way would give me the best light to cover the whole tank

    Clown is perfect, however IMO a fish in this tank (unless it is a clown goby or something tiny like that) is pretty cruel so he is going into a holding tank and then into my new system when its complete.
    I do a weekly water change
    Thanks man the ric is prob my fav need to get more

    Honestly it was such a mission to get going and sort out the right water level, etc then after days of fiddling it didnt really did not even do much but that is just my experience not saying it wont work for someone else
