    Having another day of work would be rude not to visit another LFS and this time I come away with a red Gonipora and another acan colony bottom left in first picture not fully out yet.





    I've annoyed the one on left when I moved it to get red one in


    All other corals have settled well and managed to get a decent picture of my mystery wrass had him about a year but hard to get a picture of him as he so quick

    Nice tank. Do you have any pictures of your plumbing? Mainly the drains... wondering how you tied the two of them together or if they are separate drains?

    They are 2 separate drains just grabbed some pictures all be it not the best pictures.

    Each one exits into its own large expansion chamber basically a large reverse durso this makes the system absolutely silent as the air then escapes upwards and the water goes down no bubbles except micro bubbles but they are silent





    Each line also has its own ball valve just below the bulk head to allow for tuning

    Today having a day of work it was time to pull out some of the SPS to allow more room for LPS.

    I've had a bit of a move round with some of the LPS but will add some more after Christmas to fill the gaps.











    The Gonipora are loving it and the Clowns also loving them

    There will be some big changes coming in the new year a new tank and a complete change of setup I'll start a Marty's Reef MK2 when the time comes but I've taken this as far as I want to and looking forward to the change next year. I'll take what I have learnt from this one and hopefully the next one will be even better

  14. Thanks EyeReef thanked for this post

    Loving those tangs! I recently lost my purple, yellow, and white tail in a crash. Looking for another tang to add. I just got a yellow eye kole tang and I love it! Very colorful and active.

    Sorry for your loss one of my favourites was my as Mustard-Jewel-Tang (Acanthurus Guttatus) as pictured below



    Was such a character and awesome personality but got my other half to help me one day on a waterchange and she sucked it up the pipe!!!

    I was not ammused I'm now on the lookout for another
