    Alright so i decided to get a sail fin tang i found one for a great price and it still fairly small so it will give me time to look at upgrading in the future.

    Will be taking some pics this evening to post, i have some funny insect looking things running round my tank they quite small around 7mm the biggest one they tend to come out more in the evening any ideas will try post a pic but they look like mini shrimps or something.

    Its the pods :D

    Amphipds,copepods etc ....they travel as hitchikers and live and breed in liverock,its a good sign wen u see life in the tank... They are beneficial in many ways, they eat debris off rocks (aka scavengers) so u dnt have feed them and they also serve as a food source for certain fish .... That's just some of there benfits ... Nice tank btw :thumbup:

    Im thinking of using the famous Orca Cubes in my tank is they any thing i should be aware of before i replace or remove my deep sand bed and use the cubes.

    Also what would be the best way to run them i was thinking of moving my skimmer to where my deep sand bed is and tying the bag around the overfloe pipe into the sump.

    They is quite alot of air bubbles that form there and the flow is great any comments would be appreciated;)
