    Hello All - also had some ups and downs - dropped an electric plug into the tank....nearly killing myself. All fish were fine but had some bleaching on some corals, lost some and others are doing very well :confused1:
    Yet - overall, things are progressing....

    I filled her up last weekend, after leaving the artificial rock in my reef tank refugium for two weeks while sorting out my light. Also added a small piece of live rock I had in my refugium. I did my first water change this evening and added a piece of macro algae.

    Biggest challenge so far, unsurprisingly, is keeping the temperature stable. I imagine this will determine how I will eventually stock it.

    Anyway, here is my February progress update.

    Hey all. Ok my Feb Update. Pic taken today. I had to do some rescaping to ensure more growing space for some corals. Added some extra Sticks that i rescued from a fellow reefer that could not keep his tank stable. They are starting to colour up nicely from deep brown. I must say since switching to the Aqua Forest range my tank has been going crazy with colour and Growth.. Just wish i can get a camera that can really capture all the colours correctly. S8+ has nice cam but not great for colors
