I moved in may of 2021 and upgraded my Waterbox 70:2 to a Fijicube 108 EXT. After quite a few mishaps the tank was finally transferred in early June. In the first two weeks I lost my Mombassa lionfish and and flame angelfish due to an Ich outbreak. As things started to settle in with the tank, I was at a loss as to which direction I wanted to take the tank. I ended up deciding to make large anemones and Euphyllia the focus of the tank, with some SPS (mainly branching acros) to round it out.
