    Hre ya go @steve861uk my upgrade thread.

    So.........

    Moving from an almost 80l Aqua MEdic Benny to a Aquareef 275.

    Tank arrived yesterday and rockwork I had puttied together didn't want to stay together so am going to take a couple days getting it right.

    Tank will be predominantly softies ( read that as zoas I have an addiction issue lol ), stock is undecided yet but will migrate my pair clowns, pair chromis and algae blenny over.

    Running 2 x Prime HD, MP10, SW10 and stock Koralia wavemakers, stock skimmer, stock return.

    Wanting to add a phos and nitrate reactor ideally but I have never actually ran a reactor before so more research is required before I follow that route.

    Any tips and suggestions regarding both reactor and stocking would be greatly received :D

    Few pics so far of the tank, rock, scape and a couple fo the corals that will migrate over to it once it gets wet xx 1.png 2.png 3.png 4.png 7.png 8.png 9.png 10.png cubescape1.png Itsinyay.png
