Must update this!
Will try do a bit tomorrow!
yes i agree with [MENTION=23241]nodster[/MENTION] how are things going ?
Well seems I have baby turbo snails? Do they reproduce? How! Ha
And full tank shot, anemone now decided to sit round the back of the Rock and not eating prawns like it was before.. Not sure why
Tempted to move the rock the small toadstool is on onto the floor and move my GSP in its place to cover those rocks and get some serious colour going.
Oh and here is Sully my sulphur goby who is a new addition from couple of days ago.
Progressing nicely there mate love the goby Big Thumbs Up
Buzzing, came home to this today!!
Brilliant mate they look a happy couple Big Thumbs Up
Well 2 days after putting my pistol shrimp in.. Shown below
And Valentino puffer
The goby and pistol and found each other and made a home together!
Well after all the current bad things I have put my backing on my tank to try and help with the window algae
My Valentino puffer decided it ate all my snails and couple crabs so had to go back, made me really sad actually .
So stocked up on snails and couple red legged crabs
Finally a couple of the clowns and them hosting as its just amazing
Well fighting s battle with cyno... So got these to try and assist.
Also doing several water changes.
Think may need a full chat about my tank. I feel like maybe I need carbon to help my phosphate removal? But no idea where I can add it as I don't have a sump (worst decision ever) and no where I can just add it with some flow that I can think of.. Everyone else seems to run it in filtration so must be right!
You could try a hob filter with rowaphos, also are you using 0 tds ro, if not you could be adding phosphate through water changes
I get my RO from my local fish shop. What does 0 tds mean..
0 tds is no dissolved solids, basically water with all the bad stuff taken out, it would be worth investing in you own ro filter or even a tds meter to check the lfs water and a hob filter is hang on the back filter, it's a similar idea to your hang on skimmer, cheap small and can be used to house carbon and/or phosphate remover

Ill have to try a TDS meter as only have a flat and don't think I have the room for it under the sink all the time.
HOB filter sounds like a plan, thanks for recommendation.
Woke up this morning thinking my tank was quiet.. Skimmer wasn't on.. plugged in. everything else on the power socket is fine.. GREAT. Presume maybe the pump inside has packed in?
Or the impellor is very dirty and needs cleaning?

Thought would drop an update on here! After losing my first bta I took a while away to calm things and then this turned up... I couldn't say no.. think the clowns like it!
This was it in the fish shop
And then in the tank
We'll update again.
BTA decided life wasn't for him.. I give up with them. Maybe too much flow.
Corals only for me ... so got these.
Picture of when they first went in.
Then update after a day. They are much better now.
Ohh and got this too
Looking good Big Thumbs Up get a FTS up so i can see the whole tank. Bear in mind anemones prefer a mature tank. At least 6 months old but some will even say 1 year. They replie on very stable conditions in the tank. What are the levels in your tank ?
