not sure if anyone is still following but lets get this thread up and running again!
Lets start with how I spent my weekend, well, seeing as I know I will be moving soon I thought I would spend my Saturday doing some much needed tank maintenance! This involved a trip to my mums to get the water barrels then a trip to the LFS to get RO and Salted RO (to save me having to mix it ) I also managed to find another nano heater for a bargain £14.99 for a new 50W.
emptied the talk water into two containers then moved all the rock and corals out (removing two big bristleworms in the process gross)
I was then left with a tank half full of water and dirty sand so swirled it all up and emptied the water then repeated with salt water till it was nice and clean then went about reassembling the tank and I changed back to my old lights too.
They now seem really dim possibly the LED's were a bit overkill, the large ric was doing great before the change and now is a really intensly bright colour but has shrunk down a lot! I think maybe low light might be the best route but will try the LED's in a new array at some point I'm sure.
Sunday we visited World of water in Romsey and what a great place that was! Definitely going there next weekend!
I will try and fix all the picture links if I can
