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.

knocked up a hood today, i think it makes the tank look neater and stops the light spill on the walls, pretty happy with it :)

nassarius snails or a diamond goby would do the trick

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