    Nice,

    your Bubble Magnus Naq QQ does it fit in one of the rear chambers? And it looks like you have removed the lid?

    So I've shut this tank down and moved everything over to my 4ft tank. Move went great and didn't loose any stock. Even added 2 of my favourite tangs a few weeks back and they are doing really well..

    4 ft tank

    Looks amazing.:thumbup::thumbup:

    What type of filtration are you using?

    Is it a Hang on Filter?
    Or a sump system.

    Water is really clear?
    You doing water changes every 2 weeks?

    Thank you

    Thanks man.

    Filtration is a sump with a bubble magnus curve 5 skimmer, filter floss which is replaced weekly, purigen and live rock.

    Weekly siphon detritus and 20l water change. Currently not dosing anything
