    Hi all, well I've been around for a while already so I guess it's time to show and tell my tank.

    It's been up since March 2009, and went through an extended cycle - mostly due to incorrect readings from my test kits .... Lesson learnt, when you buy cheap, you get what you pay for .....

    But using decent kits, and after feeding heavily ....

    Amm - 0
    Nitrate - 0
    Nitrite - 0
    pH - 8.2
    Sal - 1024
    phos - 0 (but it's there, lots of it too ....)

    So far livestock is a mandarin, a breeding pair of clowns, a cleaner wrasse, and a blue starfish

    Nothing to stress about there. Things are looking good. What lights are you running there and where did you get them. They look stunning

    WOW Stressed Eric! Kudo's mate! Really awesome looking tank! BTW: What the HECK is that reflection in the 1st pic? ;) Looks FUNKY to say the least!

    Tank is awesome. I really like the scaping.

    Are you 100% sure your mandarin is getting enough to eat?

    Did you decide what you're going to do regarding the lights and centre brace?
