Hi all,

It's been a while since I posted anything here (mainly just live chat in Tapatalk) so I thought I would share my AR400 journey.

So far it has been relatively drama free aside from a Dino outbreak which seems to be at the tail end and a small problem with ich whch I cleared from the fish in a hospital tank and be good ever since.

I'll take some more photos tomorrow during the day when the lights have been on for a while.

JNS C02 Skimmer (amazing but of kit)
2x Hydra 26HD Lights
2x RW-8 wave makers
Jager heater
Aqua One 2800 (I think) return pump

Hammers, Scollys, Michrooms, Stylo, Torch, Gonis, Duncans, few I have missed.

Fire goby pair
Snowflake clown pair
Lawnmower Blenny
Royal Grammar
Juvenile vlamingi tang (will be moved on when it gets big).

Red Line cleaner shrimp
Various snails
Small magnifica
A naughty crab that's in my sump
CoCo wormhttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170519/5794e814900eb9395771ba00825c80dc.jpg

Quick link to a video of my tank.
I took this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ8rWuxh8Aw) yesterday at around midday.

And some promised photos.

Tank update.

I have changed my scape around and added in some sand.
Waiting for the algae bloom to come but currently it looks amazing :-)

Amazing, how big are your clams? My mom had a large clam shell of that type, it was close to 1ft across. I'm wondering if I'd be able to add 1 successfully in my 40 gallon tank? I already have a scarlet lipped scallop, and some say they're hard to keep.

Should be ok! But they absorb a lot of trace elements apparently.

It's about the size of my fist.. maybe 10-15cm across.

Last night I added on a 3rd Hydra 26HD... amazing!
No more shadows and really brightened up the middle section.
