    Made in Africa - A Shallow Reef V2

    I should probably update my initial post, I never even used the MP10s in this tank as I had planned - the design didn't translate to what I got back from the builder so the glass was too thick where I had planned to use the MP10s - I use them to clean my sump now. I loved my MP10s on the smaller tank, they rule. 🙂 Yep, they are indeed. 🙂 They are out and about all the time yah, I really like them - they seem so grumpy.

    Would you frag it?

    It looks beautiful. Another vote to leave it.

    I never had MP40s 🙂 I currently run a couple of Tunzes and a Glamorca Gyre (or whatever it's called) - the reason was just to test it on a longer tank given the price point - the flow is pretty good I must say.

    Smiz! How are you? Thanks. Yah they are cute man.
  5. Why don't you use flex hose over those connections? Looks like it's made for that.

    I picked up some new buddies on Friday, happy to have a new pair. Also, I love how grumpy these guys always look. I admire it.

    Thanks! Sorry to read about your tank woes. Thanks. Hopefully something good
  9. I never could get my Mame overflow to work too well, I'm not sure what it was but I had siphon losses many times - thankfully I also had an emergency shut off. This little overflow looks nice, I believe Two Little Fishies supplies them in the US. http://www.xaquashop.it/en/inout-overflow/250-inout-marine-water.html

    Thanks! Thanks Christopher, it's nice to be back. Getting a generator or some other power backup solution is certainly on my list of to do's now, the timing of the power outage was very unfortunate this time (as are all issues it seems, funny how things never break when it's convenient, haha) but being prepared is certainly underestimated.

    Fresh Coral Friday? Not sure if it's a thing but I picked up a new coral on Friday and snapped a picture. It's nicer than I thought it was which is a bonus.

    Hi All. ?I've been around, kind of - it's been a crazy year for me due to personal stuff, I won't bore you with all of it. tl;dr We bought a new house and spent many months renovating it. Once that was all done we moved along with the tank and everything was happy and thriving but then unfortunately the company who was trenching Fibre cables for the area hit our power line and our house was without power for many days in the middle of winter. Yes, once again I lost nearly everything - 99% of my tank died, the corals and fish I had cared for for, some for years were gone and it was extremely frustrating. I was going to just throw in the towel but I guess I'm a sucker for punishment so I've rebooted.
