    Hi All

    I'm currently in the process of planning and building my new tank. I should be starting next month. I have been lucky with my corals being kept by Adee. Thanks for this bud! I however need someone to look after my fish for about 2 months or so.

    I currently need to cook my LR and make sure all the algae is gone and in the same time design a tank and build it. Currently the fish are in my old tank and i've reduced the lighting to 3 hours to see if this helps slow the growth of the algae down.

    Currently i have the following fish.

    Regal Tang
    Naso Tang
    Sailfin Tang
    Convict Tang
    3 x Clowns
    2 x Anthias
    2 x Gobies
    2 x Wrasse

    I also have 5 Inverts + other starfish.

    Red Starfish
    1 x Multicolour Urchin
    2 x Cleaner Shrimp
    1 x Coral Banded Shrimp (HUGE)

    Just remember that i wouldnt need to remove this fish. So a tank that has corals is probably not a good idea.

    I will supply food and salt if needed and anything else.

    Thanks!

    I could probably keep the small fish and the inverts for you without a problem. How big are the Tangs?

    My tank is slightly bigger than yours, 1200X450WX600H.

    Otherwise just sneak them into Adee's setup one night :razz:

    Thanks bud i'll let you know.

    I'm thinking about running my system without a DSB and bare base and cooking the rocks at the same time without lights and using my big skimmer in the tank. I mean my fish dont really need light. So i'll let you know :)

    Nope doesnt seem to be helping. No idea whats the problem. So a fresh start will hopefully help with clean LR and better substrate. You never know might be that my DSB is the sink...

    My tangs are big. How big is your sump?

    Its a 3ft, with 3 compartments, the DSB section is about 50cm i guess. I wouldnt house the tangs there like u said, rather the smaller guys
