Well this evening my most beloved non-fish inhabitant was moved into the new tank! it took a little while of cleaning off in the cade and then a good acclimatisation with some water spillage that was not my fault! Blasted thing decided to pump out a good jet of water haha


I had to do a bit of a shuffle around to fit her in in a reasonable spot but I think it'll work for the moment
From the doorway!


Little clam to the right side to show the size difference lol


This means that everything has now been moved across and the acro's are the only things left to come back into the tank Happy days for me though as everything has gone as well as I had hoped for! And hopefully it continues to go that way lol

I get you and everyone can be succumbed by the dark side when it looks this good haha

hahahaha what if I told you I built my own computer too!
I felt the same when I used to be an xbox player but I wouldn't trade my mouse and keyboard for anything anymore haha


On another note, we have diatoms!!

I was getting a little worried as the tank had been running with fish for two weeks and I wasn't getting any growth of anything like that then a few days ago some spots started appearing on the glass and now it's in full swing! Things are proceeding as expected lol now just to wait them out

I love the PC Game pic, I also can't stand consoles or games that have been infected with silly console support.

Tank looks good, just caught up to the fact you started this thread!

Tank is doing really well Still topping up manually even though the tunze is in the tank and I just need to put the pump in RO haha I haven't tested any levels but all the corals are open, growing and colouring up really well! The fish are happy and getting fat too, I'm feeding gouble what I was in the cube to get some better health and happiness from them and also in preparations of having more fish to feed in the tank lol


The new sump designed by the sump master is going to be a kicka*s piece of kit too!! This pic is from the back of the sump, left is overflow and skimmer section and to the right of that is return section and pre-return filter socks. Far right is the frag section which is about roughly a third of the sump!!


This is from the front of the sump. The funny looking L-shape section underneath is actual the top-off storage tank! Works out to be about 32L and means I don't have to waste space with a section for it


Top down gives you some ideas too, second chamber will be higher flow matrix and low flow super anaerobic matrix will live under the frag racks

Very cool, I'm really happy with it and I'm going to get some acrylic trim done to neaten it up along with frag racks and maybe some covers It's going to be massive!! I'm absolutely stoked Having a big easily accessible sump is going to be amazing!

haha I had to look at it a few times before I got it as well

it's because we PC gamers always go for the best and not settle for the sub-par performance that one might get from a console hahahaha

Cheers Flo
