    The one is already packed up and the equipment used on this tank. Last of the stock out of the other was picked up now. So packing it up and keeping the equipment as backup for this tank. The tanks itself will become little terrestrial moss scapes.

    WOW G! You have really outdone yourself this time!
    Stunning, & cant believe how quickly the corals acclimated to the new tank/water...
    How did you acclimate your LS?
    Lol, 20l is still considered a medium sized pico... So you're still in the minor leagues. (Think I'll be joining you soon,;))
    STUNNING!

    Hi Christiaan, it was a 10min swop, old tank down new tank up, water did not even have a change to cool down 1 degree.

    This weekend it needs to move though and it will be a different story. Wanted to call you the weekend but had some trouble with my bakkie.

    Looking forward to see what you up to.

    Ok, so it was a full tank transfer... Water, livestock & all...
    Best way to move a LS!

    Will come visit you once you settled in the new home...

    Let us hope not :)

    Yes everything at once, so the only difference was the extra 5L fresh saltwater.

    Maybe even tank of the day but putting a tank together and because it looks nice at that moment doesnt entitle anyone to tank of the month.but maintain it for a year successfully and then it is eligible for totm.
