    Unfortunately lost my fish a few weeks ago. Not sure to what, but I'm thinking about quarantining everything now. But need to weigh up if the cost and time is worth it.

    Corals are doing well. Getting about 1cm a week on my Birdsnest. Cyano phase is mostly over. Got a little bit on my substrate. Gha starting to creep in. But I'm not too worried as the tanks only a few months old.

    Won't be buying livestock for a while, going fallow for 72 days.

    When I have money I'll buy more globes for the light unit. Got two in atm and need two more. Also want to buy another wavemaker and sulfur for a nitrate reactor. Hopefully at the end of the month.

    Wow. Haven't updated in a while. Tank was looking presentable and I was going to take a few pics. But then yesterday a cable tie snapped and a rock slide happened

    So need to sort that out sometime.
