fish sakes ‍♂️
Been messing around with the reactor for the last week or so due to a very persistent leak. Believed it was due to using a gardena fitting with the poly so today tried to trade it out for a poly equivalent
No leaks!
Wait... is that a crack?... in the tank fitting?
It is
Now I’m going to have to cut the top off, replace the fitting and redo (again, did this earlier in the week to try eliminate the leak)..
No leaks at least, atm [emoji51]

The Sooty’s unfortunately been sold. The Coal Grunter started submitting to him then the Sooty decided to chase everyone... what more could I expect.
Anyway, here’s some photos of the tank currently:
The panels are now attached with magnets to the stand. They all need a couple more coats of gloss however they’re nearly done. Edgebanding was applied a while ago too
Tank had been wormed and the Neos are now eating prawns like champs
Just need to get the Coaly onto prawns or whitebait now.. pricks addicted to hikari carnivore pellets [emoji31]

Yeah It’s your Sooty man, was talking to the guy I got him from about it. Guy was moving and downsizing and Sooty was scaring his other fish so he had to go
Might have to see about that, hoping I’ll be able to sort it out though [emoji37]

Honestly myself too Ice, it’s been a bit of an interesting experiment.. [emoji51]
I do plan on upping the stock level to be eventually something like the following:
2x Neosilurus Ater
1x Sleepy Cod
1x Coal Grunter
1x Sooty Grunter
1x Butlers Grunter
1x Snakehead Gudgeon
3x Yellowtailed Grunter
Potentially a Leichardti depending on aggression and space

Obviously that’s a very high stocklevel, I plan on sumping the tank before I would get to that level. Fish aggressions I’m sure would make me reconsider certain fish, also. However I find it would make a good list of potential fishes
I’m also considering just adding a school of Giant Glassfish to the current stocklist - If I can afford then
