    HI Guys and Gals,

    I am new to this hobby but not new to fish tanks,

    My set up is as follows, starting small so i can keep it under control!

    I have a Jebo R760 half moon tank! I have modified to filtration system to fit the Boyu skimmer, i also have a Sunsun JVP 101 wave make and a buyo powerhead for extra water movement. The Jebo tank came with its own filtration system system which works perfectly!

    At the moment everything is setup and has been running for just over a week now! I have 5 - 6km of live rock, halk being Kenyan and the other being Fiji! The rocks have new things on them ever day and i have found 3 tiny crabs hiding in the rocks! 2 black ones with red eyes(not hairy) and a white one. How do i get these little buggars out rather than staying in their homes? :p

    Im rather concerned about the lighting as the lid came with 2x T5 8W bulbs, which i have changed the one to a UV black light for the coral! Any ideas on changing to stronger bulbs and which ones to fit?

    All comments welcome, need all the advice i can get!
