    Hi guys...

    Been on the forum for a little while now and my tank has been going for bout 6 months now... so time to post the pics... :)

    This is how it started... a tank with some LR and a newly built cabinate...

    This was just as I had set up... finished building the cabinate...

    Now... I added my first fish... this was after 2 months of cycling...

    Next were the bicolours... or choc chips as I prefer... Started out with 6 of em... the one got beaten to death by the others, and the other got blind in one side and didn't survive the adding of new LR and "aqua scaping"

    So there are 4 left and I only have recent pics of them but here they are...

    I also acquired some hermits and shrimp over time.

    The 1st pair was dancing shrimp, they seem to run around each other.
    Next was a green hermit crab. Absolute ace in GHA cleaner!!!!! This oke is a natural.

    My fish then got ich and I opted to get a cleaner shrimp as I knew it was a way to sort em out... and it worked beautifully... fish were healthy again within a few days!

    Next addition was a Bangaai.. Lovely fish this... very placid except feeding time... then he flies around.

    After the Bangaai came another cleaner shrimp and a red legged hermit. (had two but it seems he won the supremacy for the shell battle...)

    After this I got me a Pyjama Carndinal... just a baby and very cute... still a bit skitish but going to do some re-scaping soon to sort that out...

    After some time and just recently I have got some reef catfish and a Turbo snail... :)

    Here are the latest pics of the tank...
