    31FB94ED-B79D-461D-9332-58DDA6FD20C8.jpeg Not loving my tank at the moment...shuffled things around and removed my acans due to my Tigerpyge nipping them...will probably shuffle things around again before I’m happy.

    On a positive note, added a Gem Tang over the last month and love him to bits! :m16:

    Hi all , my new tank has been running for just over 4 months, all rocks was dead when it started running , now it is starting to get hints of Coralline algae and the green is starting to disappear , added one fish and some homemade rocks which is starting to get some life now too and some coral will be added soon ... if i dont make some more rocks .

    The tank is 900L × 40w × 50H running on a canister filter, polyfilter and a oversized skimmer . If or when coral is added , some coal will be used .

    Lighting system is a 60cm T5 Quad system , two white bulbs , 1 actinic blue , 1 actinic blue plus

    Water changes is done every Saturday , 30% with water from the Aquarium .
