Lovely mate, are you going to add sand on later or have the tank bare-bottom?

Thanks:

Aquaforest Phosphate Minus seems to have very good reviews on but I have not tried it yet, still need to finish the remain Rowaphos before I move on to that :)

Hi I ordered a nyos phosphate test kit and a tmc vectron v2 uv steriliser today.  Hopefully this will help keep away parasites.   My exquisite fairy wrasse still has a few spots on it but I don't have a spare tank for quarantine.  I will just have to ride it out and keep them well fed
