    Not sure whether this is the right place to post, still tryna get used to Tapatalk!


    Hello, I'm Rhys, Ashton in makerfield.

    Just set up my second marine tank after have two years out of keeping fish of any kind.
    It's an aquaone ar620 if I remember rightly. 80L. Been up and running for around 2 weeks now.
    Bought some CUC members the other day. 3 blue legged dwarf hermits. 2 bumblebee snails, 1 Halloween hermit. Will be adding some more this week, just not too sure what. Any suggestions?
    Will also be adding some fish over the next few weeks, if all parameters allow me to!

    If there's anyone around the Wigan area, I'd love for them to come see my tank and give me some advice on what I'm doing wrong/right.
    Also, is there any clubs local to me?

    HI Rhys

    and welcome aboard

    you dont need too much CUC until you have fish really
    you should put a bit of food to ensure they dont go hungry

    and we love pics on here

    Thanks Jim!

    Read somewhere to drop a prawn (crushed) in a few days after set up. Have done so, everything's Ng has been feeding on the scraps of that and the bits of algae on the sand and rocks. It's all looking good so far.

    Hal, the Halloween hermit, seems to be doing well. I read that they can become aggressive and/or barge things over in their search for food, he's been well so far!

    Will be getting a pair of clowns on the weekend
