    Helo!

    Thought I'd start a thread about my little piece of the Big Blue.

    Tank:
    -A Jebo corner tank rated at 189 liters. Tank has been running since 28 March 2009.

    Hardware:
    -3 Seio M620's
    -1 Sunsun Jvp 201
    -One small powerhead
    -Total flow would calculate to aprox 14 000 lp/h giving me a 75 (shy) turnover.
    -Red Sea Prizm HOB skimmer
    -300w heater
    -150w MH

    Yes peeps I am running the tank without a sump and just a HOB skimmer.

    Livestock:
    -Coral beauty
    -Yellow wrasse
    -Cape Moony
    -Cleaner shrimp
    -Boxer shrimp
    -Assorted zoas (man I love 'em zoas!)
    -Pulsing xenia
    -Green and orange rics
    -Red plating monty
    -Orange Montipora digitata.
    -Purple tip acro
    -GSP
    -Assorted mushrooms
    -Aprox 30kilo's of LR

    Well jup thats 'bout it...

    Pics? Patience is a virtue...;)

    Cool

    I added fully cured LR (about 10 months or longer) to the system and only added the SPS two weeks ago. The softies were added after a month.

    I have lost 2 clowns and a blennie due to my rhodactis shrooms being hungry and he chowed them in their sleep. They spat out a half eaten blennie and I saw two mushrooms with huge lumps eating away on my 2 black allardi's...;(

    Other than that my Regal (he was only like 5cm's) disappeared within 2hours. I was feeding the tank at 7am in the morning and when I came back home at 10 he was gone! Haven't seen him since. Man that sucked big time!

    You guys hey! :lol:

    Sad to say I have some whitespot in my tank so I will be placing the fish in a QT on Saturday untill the 28th of July. 2weeks hyposalinity coming up for them fish...

    My question-do I have to remove my shrimps as well in order to make my tank white-spot free?

    Another question-can scratches be removed from acrylic?
