    Hi all,

    I rather new to marine and finding out it's a full time job but it really is a labour of love and can honestly say it really helps with my mind as I struggle with mental health

    I have a 2ft x 2ft x 2ft cube with sump.

    Live stock

    Lion fish
    Porcupine puffer
    Dogface puffer
    Jeweled blemmy
    Clown wrasse
    Humbug damsel
    Engineer gobi
    Two clowns
    Foxface

    Live rock
    Live sand
    2x bunches of Kenya tree's
    2x bunches of pulsing xsina
    3x bubble tip anemone (was two but one split)

    Here are some pics the first ones are of my tank before a good clean after getting my phosphate levels down so finaly was able to tackle the algie but all sorted now[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah it does alot thankfully I'm not to bad and able to function day to day and work etc but on my bad days I focus on research on how to improve my tank and my fish live too.

    I cannot wait to get a larger tank then will be alittle easier to look after the levels as this one is alittle small and been told by my LFS that a larger tank is easier with the sort of fish I want to keep
