    Ok so sorry every one for not posting since dinosaurs roamed but not much has happened
    So the tank scalping changed twice again and this is what it is today [​IMG]
    Changing my filtration from purigen and carbon to nitra-guard bio cubes :) hoping on getting a new light so I can start adding more corals...

    So anyway added a sweet little nerite snail and bought a 300lph pump for my display
    Hoping to make a sort of softy garden at the bottom and didn't want any not-wanted waste (i.e stupid fish poo) to land on them.
    Also started using special blend bacteria with my new bio-cubes (bomb method) seems to be working well...
