    Hi All,

    Please note that due to the excellent quality of last month's submissions, we are really struggling to finalise a winner. Therefore, for last month's entries we are going to do a draw. I will be at @JungleAquatics on Sunday to get the team to do the draw.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for the lack of participation, I am out of the country so no chance of tank photos.

    Added a media rack to the back chamber, Tunze 9001 skimmer, Tunze 6095 flow pump and set up ozone on my nano. Things are ticking along and fish look healthy.

    So it's been a slow month not much happend, I added 3 Goldies and a sea hare to help with the clean up and house keeping of tank. Always wanted one now I have it I called him Shrek.

    Unfortunately the cromis died. No reason was in tank for a week.

    I brought some more corrals from my South African tank back when I was in SA in June.

    All is going well.

    Not Much has changed.

    I just got myself a 10ul syringe to be able to dose 0.01ml of the products im dosing, since it is very concetrated & 1 drop is overdosing in my 30l Pico. LOL

    Syringe & Vid

    So for my Update..Finally swithched to AF Pro Bio salt..And wow after my first change i could see the corals react. I did some rescaping of some corals as they started to grow into each other and fight.. So have 2 massive pieces of Birdsnest that no one wants. But overall corals are SPS happy and growing like mad.. I honestly have AF to thank for the stunning colours of all my corals..P.S. no filters or photo edit done..
