    Completed first water change of 50L today, since starting tank just user 2 weeks ago, and was a bit of a pain as too manual and had to empty from display tank as opposed to sump. So popped out to H2O this afternoon and bought a Eheim compact 1000 and 3 meters of tubing so that I can empty from sump and then refill from water container.

    Worth a go and if saves time, reduces lifting and keeps the floor dry so game on.

    A few shots of tank

    Been impressed with the MP40QD's so far, only been on low so far and not fitted to reeflink but gives good flow and are quiet but not silent.

    I was a little apprehensive of having 3 types of tang in the tank but so far so good and not seen any aggressive behaviour between the yellow, regal or vampire tang. The vampire is the biggest at about 4 inches long whilst the other 2 are about 3 inches.

    My favourite fish at the moment, the chalk goby. A great little character that spends all day filtering the sand. It is not for very every tank as I first put it in a holding tank of 135L and it created a sandstorm but fortunately does not have this effect on the 450 and I hope it continues to keep the sand clean.

    In my last tank my pair of fire shrinks were always out and about but now rarely appear as so many places to hide. a cracking shrimp

    Already had a green Tracky and new tank also had one but you can't get enough tracys as so colourful and illuminate the tank at night.

    Might get to auto water change machine in end but did not want the expense (after buying tank etc in last month) so decided on a cheap pump and go from there.

    Will see how it goes but I am thinking about setting up a couple of Jeboa rw4's to run at back of tank, to get some circulation behind the wall of rock to prevent dead spots.

    Tried the pump out his afternoon and made a 25L water change and worked well. No lifting or relying on gravity and no mess!!

    A poor picture of pump in sump

    Clipped pipe to container so that it wouldn't pop out and create a mess
