    Hello again,

    As requested here are some pics of my tank

    Not the greatest images, some are very early on when I first put the clowns in.

    Nice start but keep an eye on the nem with everything being so new :)

    Thanks, I am keeping a very watching eye on the nem as I know your not really meant to put them in a tank less than 12 month old but the clowns were getting a bit aggressive towards other fish. I hoped having a nem may settle them down a bit and so far it has.

    Taking it slow also when it comes to adding new things to the tank, at the moment I am adding a coral or fish once a month if not more.

    Again, thanks for the kind comments.

    Thought I should post an update as somethings have unfortunately gone
    such as the Anemone, Carnation (inevitably) and the Dragonet Mandarin.
    There has also been some new additions.

    After messing around with sheets of blue acrylic and struggling to get
    it into the tank I decided to just paint the back in Ronseal's Royal Blue
    Tile Paint

    I have also got rid of the Aquaray Beams (idea first came when speaking
    to people on this forum about why my nem died), new unit is a Aqualumi
    6way with 2x 10k Reef White, 2x Blue plus and 2x Actinic's.

    A friends Acropora was not doing too well so it now sits in my tank in
    the hope it may come back whilst he sorts out the cause. The pic is from
    when it was first put into the tank. Since then the tips have started to become green and the bleaching has not advanced.

    A couple of weeks ago a hammer coral was added

    A few days ago I added a new 3Kg piece of cured live rock which allowed me to place the existing fake rock piece on top. I also added a branching torch coral too.

    Well that's it for now, slow progress but should be able to start adding more corals over the next few months and possibly some more rock (haven't decided whether I want more yet).

    Another update

    Added quite a few bits and pieces since the last update including some more LV. Most the corals that have gone in are just frags but hoping to see them grow over the next few months.
