    Re: Bedroom Boyu TL450

    i have got the TL550B and i have removed the lid all together and put a 2ft 6 tube iquatics light on top and it is a hell of lot brighter and corals look nicer and are doing much better under these. i recommend you go with the T5s rather than LED's as i think they are far better and give a better spread of light

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    and this one my shrimps and Crab killed it off so moved it to here and its starting to grow back Was Gutted as i love these :)

    Well I need to get rid of the hair alge and I think change the Bulb but not sure when ?
    I want to go LED on this tank . But will have to hold off for know everything seams OK so far .:thumbup1:
    They say a smaller tank is harder to look after i have done nothing apart from Water changes every 2 weeks and the upgraded skimmer i empty every 5 - 7 days never pulls much out ?
    Still Thought i would give you a quick update.

    This pic of yours is a Ricordia Yuma fella and rather nice I think. Mine are bi-colour but even the single colour ones are very nice.

    Excellent under moonlights too Big Thumbs Up

    Re: Bedroom Boyu TL450

    Only just got mine so I've not thought about fragging it yet. I'll just let it settle for a few months and see if it spreads naturally like the mushrooms. I'd just leave it for now and see what it does Big Thumbs Up

    I am under the impression just about anything can be fragged if you have the knowledge Big Thumbs Up

    [​IMG]


    Had a Issue as well I got 2 clown fish with sale plan was to put in the red sea max with my other clown fish
    But after the first few Hours and the next day the smaller of my original Clowns was getting Bullied by the bigger of the new clowns and the other 2 :(
    Gutted the Poor Fish was hiding behind the rocks trying to getaway.
    So decided last night and after 2 hours managed to get the clown out of the tank.
    We thought we would try in the tank upstairs The Boyu 450 as it will only be for a month until we get his tank sorted.
    And i am happy to say they all 3 have settled in OK ...Phewwww.
