    Temp is usually about 26..I've got mine on 25...have you thought of the reason why you could have lost you'r Fish and Corals...? Did you keep you'r Water Parameters stable...? What tests did you all do...?..How many times did you do water changes...and how much...15%...20%..weekly...every 2weeks...? Just some of the ideas you can share with us so that we can figure out what happened...

    Welcome dude. Make a thread for your tank and upload lots of pics and give details. There are a few guys who have your tank and they kick butt but they made some mods to it. Nice to see another local guy, you came to the right place if you want to learn about this hobby

    Also I would like to add the following:
    -what salt are you using?
    -What do you use to measure the specific gravity of the salt water?
    -have you tested for nitrates or phosphates?
    -What water do you use to mix the Salt water with? Tap water or RO?

    @YaseenNaNo, You really should be testing your water at this stage , if the capital outlay is an issue just ask the LFS, most will do it for a minimal fee (or even for free). As you progress in the hobby you will be able to interpret water conditions better by looking at your corals , fish etc....but even then regular testing is a must IMHO.

    The Yellow Tang unfortunately is not suited for a nano , they need a lot of swimming space, in the wild they occupy 1 square meter plus ! Rather see if you can take it back and swap for something else , sell / swap with another reefer etc.

    Just do a search on MASA for Nano fish (or Google if you like) ...there are LOADS of colorful fish ideal for Nano setups

    Good luck :)

    Welcome to MASA have a look at my TL550 in my signature.
    There are a lot of guys with nice TL550s like Charl said, so you must just look around a bit.

    Post some pics then we can get an idea of whats going on with your tank.;)
    I think you should try do weekly changes, or at least 20L every second week.
    Without testing it is hard to see when something is going wrong, even if you don't test every week you should really try test it at least once a month at a fish shop, specially if you want to add more corals.

    A wave maker is also a good thing to put in the tank as it will help with the flow quite a lot, there are so many out there try go for one or two with a combined flow of about 3000-5000LPH if you are not sure.

    Whats in the back is it just all the stuff the tank came with?
    How much live rock do you have?

    Also one of the best things you can do is go to one of the sponsor shops and have a chat with them. There are no shops in lenasia that know what they are doing

    Hi yaseen

    Welcome to Forum, I see you said you had your Nano for 18 months now, Did you set up with a tank cycle, and how long if you did?

    Please test your water this weekend and place it on the forum so that we can see what is happening in your tank. :thumbup:
