hi guys ive never made a thread before but i thought it would be fun and interesting to log my tank. Not only for you guys to see but also for my own benifit. so here are some pics

DSC000151.jpg

this tank has been running for about a month, everything was transfered from my 33g with the addition of a few fish and corals.

im running 2 twin H0T5 consisting of 2 actinics and 2 14k whites

the live rock is from the coral sea and was bought from my LFS, as in australia there are almost nil online traders.

filtration is a red sea prizm skimmer delux and a aquaone marisys240 overflow with trickle filter, i know you guys dont like trickles but it seems to work for me :)


any coments or if you want to see or know anything in particular please ask thanks nathan

Dang that sucks! Well at least you didn't have to drop 300$ for it :D

Really though, I hope it gets better, I would assume keeping it well fed will help it a lot.

was thinking a diamond goby there pretty cool looking, it there a big chance of him under mining my rocks and causing a collapse?
