Very nice Falcon! I can imagine that your phosphates and nitrates was quite high then (the cyano bacteria and the great growth of the soft-corals and caulerpa).....
What skimmer do you use now? Also - how often and what do you feed?

actually there's quite alot of marines around this area.I would say this is partly because of the brilliantly helpful fish shop called DIE VISDAM(close to riveira hotel).he keeps decent stock and is decently priced compare to like say exotic aquariums in boksburg.

where's your hometown bro?

At the time my tank was still new and i only had a side sump built into the tank but no place for a decent skimmer so i had some junk jebo or something lol.


i was attempting to control the no3 and phos with my in tank refugium aka caulerpa(did'nt work too well however).

early 2007 i added a proper sump with a via-aqua sk300 skimmer and a refugium with a dsb and very good caulerpa growth....nitrates and phos quickly dropped to zero within a month!
