    So after the other tank started leaking,I decided to sell off most of the corals as I had everything running in flow bins.

    Took 5 months before I set my mind on a size and enough cash to start the new build:m01:

    And so it started:thumbup:

    Done a bit of cleaning up.

    Removed all the odds & sodds in the sump,also separated the macro algae (greens & reds).

    Also put all the rics on one rock.

    Thinking of getting a few more tube nennies to fill that area :biggrin:

    Carpet nennie has been on the move the last week,hope he settles now.

    Currently have a few fish in the fuge (keeping for a friend): Mandarin; Dottyback; Flame goby; Watchman goby & Raccoon fly (the latter is mine).

    Some pics...
