    Welcome :thumbup: it's an awesome tank. I know the agonising feeling of having to wait for it, Got mine almost 4 weeks ago.

    Progress

    Ok, I survived day 1. The tank I bought is 2nd hand ( already cycled) and I had a bit of a head start. Currently things look kind off stable. 0 ammonia, 20 nitrate, 0 nitrite, pH8.2.

    There was a trigger fish in the tank which I left with the shop. I took the snowflake eel and a purple and orange crayfish ( bit worried about that one)
