Voice inside my head says yes.
But, I know it’ll cause me more hassle.
Patience..... I got some of that.

Patience is for suckers, get that sucker full of water. If there's beer involved and maybe a frag or two I may even be willing to help you move it ;)

Yep set that bad boy up, at least then it'll be well on its way to being fully established by the time you have to move it (which always seems like its way harder than it actually is).

Going from FW to SW. It is funny to me what SW keepers consider aggressive. Hear it time and time again, one tang per tank. Yeah maybe if you have a small tank, but even then Tangs probably aren't a great option as the majority get fairly 'large' and they really like a lot of space to graze. I have 5 now, and when i add a new one, the Powder Blue goes after it for 3-4 hours. Then the next day its like the new fish has been there since the start with 0 aggression. They actually even seem to 'enjoy' each others company. Look at the pics the 5 tangs are all within a foot of each other in both pics. This wasn't a coincidence either. They seem to actively graze as a group moving about the tank - even though they are all separate species. With two in the genus Acanthurus and two Zebrasoma and a lonely Naso for now.

Thanks mate.

 

Been chatting to the guys at Reef Secrets over the east - going to get a shipment of new corals sent over in the new year. They have heaps of great SPS - just need to hold out until then which is tough.

So sold my last ray - sad day...….

Old cube tank gone.

 

4x2 operating really well and looks clean as a whistle! Super happy.

 

If I can sell my snakes soon enough I may start up this marine tank prior to moving...……...

The freshwater tank is going ballistic, plants growing like weeds, had to trim and throw away some bolbitis! Overall pretty happy with this tank, so will just leave it do its own thing!

 

Finally sold my snakes, now looking to invest in a calcium reactor for the reef tank - expensive hobby this marine stuff.
