Thanks Craig, glad you've enjoyed it. 

 

Tank is now 5 months old - super young for a reef. Tank has now also been featured on Dalua Australia's facebook page. Dalua is the distributor Illumagic (the lights I'm using), which is pretty cool for such a young tank. 

 

Can't wait to see what the tank will look like in 12 months from now.

Think you speak for mostof us!

1 year from now, once the colonies start to establish, it will look incredible

Added a 6 line wrasse and a Clown tang. Both are tiny, hopefully they don't destroy my tank in time. 

 

I think from now on, I'm only adding fish that can serve a purpose for me. Which is pretty much wrasse for pest eradication and tangs for algae eating. 

 

A small group of yellow coris would be cool..

Bumped into Jules at Vebas on the weekend.  :cheers:

 

Picked up a couple more fish - Sohal Tang (brave or stupid, haven't decided yet) and a Yellow Coris Wrass. 

 

The Sohal is still copping it a bit from the powder blue, hopefully subsides in the next few days. 

 

The tang group is now; Powder Blue, Orange Shoulder, Clown, Sohal, Yellow, Desjardini and a Blonde Naso. 

 

I think a 2 -3 more wrasse and 3-4 more tangs and I'm done. Probably go a Yellow Eye Kole Tang, Convict, Blue and maybe either a second blonde Naso (female) or Yellow.

Sohal copped a solid whipping for the first couple days, seems to have been accepted now and is eating frozen and a few pellets. Still confused by the Nori sheets.

 

I tried to dissipate the aggression with bulk feedings - desjardini, orange shoulder and naso look like swimming footballs.

 

Clown tang is also putting one some weight, was pretty skinny when it went in. 

 

Orange shoulder looks like its about to transition to adult colours, is a muddy yellow now.

haha was quite funny on Saturday! I was thinking that's Alex....

Stupid decision going to Vebas with no marine tank, makes me want to set it up even more!

 

Yellow eye Kole tangs are gorgeous, definitely more tangs to keep the tank colorful and active. Still hoping to see the holy grail Achilles tang in there one day!

Surprised you didn't buy any corals from Vebas, had a few nice ones in!

Achilles are nice, but the Holy Grail is the Gem Tang!

All the high end tangs are good - Gem’s, Achilles, blacks and Chevrons.

Not sure how active Alex is on here anymore.

Sadly, he shut it down, went back to FW keeping with a nice collection of bass and other exotics.
