    Just for you Ceech I've done some more pictures, as you can see plenty of algae about so have done a dose of chemiclean to see if its cyano , as a result of adding this I've added an airstone near my return pump with this I can keep oxygen levels up so plenty of tiny bubbles about tank , fish don't seem to be bothered , ich outbreak still showing its ugly head been dosing for 4 days now who knows if this stuff works

    Rw4 is a cracking wee wave maker. I use mine on pulse mode rather than continuously

    I here that frazzle121180 I've got it on w1 full power and its certainly pushing water around. I like the size too got the wp-25 on the other side of tank and its an eyesore at 3 times the size , thinking of getting another rw4 to replace it with only paid 41 quid for it with free delivery Big Thumbs Up

    Nice pictures buddy ☺ is that a month pirate plate ? I am sure your algae will clear up in time just part of the process as they say. I am starting to get coralline algae in tank now. But I like it ☺

    Morning all , frazzle121180 got it from fish street mate took about a week and a half to get here but all's good and like I say free postage which you have to watch out for on fish street Big Thumbs Up hello Ceech I've no idea what plate it is or even if it may be an encrusting as I'm seeing a growth pattern , instead of growing out its growing straight down around the edges , bargain as well mate 15 quid it was and as big as my palm my camera can't seem to pick the colours out on all my corals the colours are much vivid and darker than the camera picks up

    The one coral I'm most pleased with is the birds nest it was all washed out with burnt tips which [email protected] kindly gave to me as a freebie , I trimmed the burnt ends off aggressively and slowly its coming back , looks like its a green flesh with purple polyps and looking back when I first got it, it sure is fast growing Big Thumbs Up Ceech I agree mate the algae just has to take its course to burn itself out , must remember to do some tests later

    I have to say i love my birds nest also looks great in the tank. I know what you mean about the colours of the colours when taking pictures it really does not do them justice :) I would hate to think how much i would have to pay for the coral you paid 15 for :-(
