    So after starting a 1m aquaria 3 months ago I finally decided to upgrade to a bigger tank.
    Here are the current specs of the new tank.
    Tank= 1500L x 600W x 600H
    Reef octopus diablo 160 skimmer
    Seio 120 wave pump
    JNS phosphate reactor
    Maxspec Razor 16000k unit x 2
    Upgrades to come

    I transfered all the livestock 4th August and since then I have added a few coral, Loads of LR and some new fish.
    I have also used 2L of special blend and I have not had a spike in any of the parameters at all.
