    All seems to be going well! The tank has arrived and has been up and running since last Wednesday.

    I have added about 24kgs of Fuji live rock which was very alive. Tons of tube worms are present. Also found a dead crab!

    Lighting unit should arrive in about 3 weeks time.

    I am rescaping the tank over the weekend and will then try and take some pics. The flow is not right and is causing cyano issues in some areas of the tank which I am hoping to sort out.

    Sorry - I have clean forgotten :(
    There are now 5 Evansi Anthias, 1 Copperband, 1 Royal Gramma, 2 misbar clownfish, 1 Rainford Goby and 2 Yasha gobies in the tank.
    I have 3 fish in QT at the moment - 1 yellow tang, 1 flame angel and 1 multicolour angel.
    I did go through a rough patch of cyno which has now cleared up but I still have diatoms appearing. Otherwise the tank is doing exceptionally well and is very low maintenance :)
