    I promised to put up a few pics once the Boyu I got from Zombie_CT was set up - so here goes.

    Currently it is home to 2 x Percula Clowns, 1 x Cleaner shrimp, 1 x Porcelain crab, a few snails and one shrimp I got from someone who caught it at the beach ( he was hiding so I couldn't get a pic)

    There is a not much corals in yet - couple of frags of zoas and a mushroom or two and I still need to add more LR, but I will get there eventually.

    i got a Boyu DG2520 yesterday that I still need to setup. It can be used externally so I thought i'll give it a try. I know boyu is not the best skimmers but this one is rated a lot higher than what I need. So hopefully it will do the job.

    Thanks to all for the nice comments.
