    re: Vision 450-Coral Tragedies

    I've binned off the aqua phos being gravity fed through a di pod. It just kept grinding to a halt so I've put the aquaphos in a bag in the sump and gone back to rowa in my chippy reactor

    Also added a bag of rowa carbon.

    Cheers guys :)

    Had a nightmare after leaving yours for nevs Liam, went past nevs to a spar for cash back only they didn't do cash back. Drove on and after hitting country lanes turned round and headed towards Leigh for a shop, no joy and ended up at that roundabout back near yours :lol: Rang nev all stressed as had to be back for after school club finishing and going back another time now. What a disaster!

    Pics of new additions will be another day, time to get the kebab ordered ready for the footie. my little lad loves the angel btw :)

    Hysterical Never mind mate, hopefully my tank will be less acidic next time you're up this way and will have stock in. The lads got good taste in fish! The angels a great looking fish mate, with the radiums I can only imagine it will look even better too.

    I do love the radiums :) good news is its not at all afraid of my bully sailfin, must be after being in with all your fish

    Your tank looks fantastic mate, you've done a good job with the rock. Are you keeping those bulbs that were in or buying new?

    I couldn't get at my urchin to get it out so I'm going to have to watch it near this plate

    Ordered a curry and bloody kick off delayed

    Dwarf angels are little hard knocks mate, won't struggle to get that to hold its own. I'll stick with the bulbs that are in now until I have something that needs new ones mate. Not worth paying out for newbies when there's nothing that will suffer because of these.

    I'm ordering a dominos in a minute, reduced fat cheese though. Hysterical

    Considering it atm :( since adding some frags the corals that were ok are fading away, possibly by flatworm I dunno.

    Was going to add some of that clear fx pro but just don't see the point anymore! Getting advanced water test done via tanktests and that's about all I can be bothered with right now. It's a twig graveyard
