    No body would believe what stock will be going in.

    To true Glen, thanksfor the welcome back.

    Very mature substrate with lots of pods, water and a rock with some mushrooms have gone in for now, more softies still to go in.
    Now lets see how many of you know me and think they have an idea of what live stock will be taking up residence in this system.

    Another tank is in the pipe line already, but not a big one yet - that will have to wait till I move again hopefully next year, then there is a 1500x 800x800 tank as an upgrade coming.

    Nice try, but no albino clowns.

    Welcome back Rob ! Guess you are not going for a school of Yellow Tangs in there !

    Pico tanks are very cool IMHO , if you have the time and stocking is done correctly. Cant wait to see how this develops

    David you got half of it right, there will be a about 10 sexy shrimp going in and the then...........
    Sorry cant tell you guys who will be joining them till I get them.

    Will post some more pics tomorrow. Thinking about redoing the lighting to a higher wattage led with a few more to cover the blue and purple/pink spectrum as well.

    Filter will be done away with in time, for now going to run it with carbon, phosguard and matrix. Once I have completed the mod of a carbon reactor that will become the filter for the tank and I must still fit the auto top-up system.

    Sorry no mantis shrinp tank just yet.
