    Hi Guys,

    Thought i'd post some pics of my setup before i tear it apart tonight to kill any crabs, and to replace the worm rock that is left with coral skeletons.

    System Specs:

    Tank: 1300l x 800h x 600w
    Sump: std 4 ft
    Total Water Volume: around 800l
    Skimmer: Reeftek TS2
    Return Pump: Hailea 6500 lph

    Here is a full tank pic:

    And some of the inhabitants.....

    And here is the rock to replace the worm stuff:

    Bought it from Hillcrest Pets, considering there are no sponsors on this site i can publish their name.

    My gemmatum badge is disappearing, he is only camping at my place.

    Thanks Alan, but the home where the gem is going doesn't have a poder blue and a pencil surgeon to box with him, so it is a better place.

    Nice selection of fish and I really like those bright orange stars, nice to see a fish only tank for a change, looking forward to seeing your new aquascape with lots of caves for the fish to swim around.

    Too true, it's refreshing to see a Fish Only tank, it's what got most of us started in this hobby in the first place.
