    Hi fellow reefers... ! I've been on the forum for a short while doing a lot of reading. I am a total noob when it comes to marine tanks. I used to breed Discus a long time ago and find it interesting that a lot of the same concepts apply?

    I recently bought a running tank from someone else, and must say in the short time I have had it I have learnt sooo much from this forum, as opposed to LFS'...

    Hope you have lots of fun with your new tank! Did you buy it fully stocked or are in the process of stocking it?

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I bought the tank with a few fish, live rock, some coral and a few anemone's. It's a 630 liter with two Kessel 360 tuna blue lights. The sump is the full length of the tank with a reeftek skimmer and a deep sand bed. I'll try to post some picks!

    I'll have to scale down on the RBTA's they are getting massive! One of my fish inexplicably disappeared two weeks ago and they are prime suspects...

    Well anyhow my idea is to try and keep the softies to one side and sps on the other... The nennies seems to like the left hand side and keeps moving there no matter where I put them. Hold thumbs, there will always be one rogue member I guess....
