    Yeah had mine half way up on the rock but it just didn't seem 100% happy or maybe it's just me so I've put it on the bottom on its own rock which hopefully will become my Acan garden

    Small update got myself a jabao cp 40 as my wp40 has had better days, been running a couple of hours now and I'm amazed at how much flow this creates all over my tank. Also got a small frag of zoas a coupe weeks back but can't get a decent pic of them lol

    Got up this morning and it's still running haha, tanks looking good and corals seem to be responding well to the added flow so far, the anemones have adjusted them selves a little bit and I'm expecting a couple to walk they way into my frag pot haha. Only thing that's changed is my tank temperature has risen 1 degree which I don't know if it's from the CP40 or if im being parinoid and its the ambient temperature of the front room being warmer this morning when I got up as the heating was on and it also seems alittle warmer outside.

    So small update.. bit of a strange one
    My regal just literally died within the blink of an eye. I got up fed the fish some pellets watched them all swimming round for a second I sat back down flicked the tv over, then looked back at the tank to the regal floating in the top corner dead floating. I'm like super shocked and gutted her stomach looked really bloated after death so I'm thinking something internal happened.[​IMG]
