The leopard wrasses was only seen twice, and haven't seen it since. The yellow tail lasted a week just wasn't eating, I have a good population of copepods. The new Tunze power heads are good they give a nice decent gentle flow which doesn't batter the corals, but wished I brought the ones with the controller for  more random flow. Also keep looking at the mp10qd and try and justify the price,they are very good power heads.Haven't added anything else since as been busy helping out in the flood areas in Cumbria,I have added a doser unit as when I was away with work had no one to dose the nopox and nitrates and phosphate crept up a bit.I am away from Sunday 3rd Jan for two weeks working in Carlise so fingers cross everything will be fine with tank, I have a auto feeder for flake and pellet food and will leave instructions with daughter to add some frozen food a couple of days a week to return section in sump.
And finally Happy New Year to everyone

Decided to remove sailors today,even though they helped at 1st I feel They weren't set up 100% right,there was a build up of detritus even though I regularly gave them a shake each water change, I have decided to monitor tank over the next 6 weeks and see if there is much change in nitrates. I have a doser set up dosing nopox currently,my nitrates seem to of been stuck at around 6 for a while so will see if they will lower a bit to between 3-4 where I would like them.

Hi everything is ticking along nicely. Haven't had time to really post as started a new job etc. I have sold most of my hammerhead and crosstown corals. As wanted to add another tower to mount corals.  I have kept a frag of the gold tip hammer and also the blue tip. Still using nopox using a doser. It seems to be keeping nitrates in check. But having issues with a light covering of algae on sand this maybe down to the longer daylight hours and also aquarium is by window and gets the afternoon Sun.I am always nagging the misses to close one of the curtains to see if it makes a difference, I will try and get some pics up over this weekend if not too sore as got a company day paint balling on Saturday.

If the curtains are an issue, couldn't you black out the light passing side of the tank? Or is it from above or something?

Thanks for the update anyway.

Ps. Freeze your paintballs for a massive advantage over the opposition. Just like baking or aging conkers, etc.  :lol: by the time the emergency services are called, the evidence has thawed out.  :D

 Not been on here much lately been busy with new job, loss my 3 grasses Timor grasses and two chorus grasses to a bacterial infection, tangs,firefish,mandarin not affected. Apparently quite common in wrasses that sleep in the sand,it starts near the tail end with a reddish colour,internal bleeding only very minor and fish goes downhill. On a brighter note just brought two hydra 26hd units.will put some pics up later. Just feeling a bit down with the loss of fish.

Hi , changed my lighting from razors to 2 x hydra 26hd units, I have noticed good coral growth. Currently suffering with a small outbreak of algea due to the new lights which have been running approx 4weeks now and think I have the right schedule. Just ordered some corals online for the 1st time as always said would never buy online as like to see what I am buying. These are due to arrive Tues b4 12pm so will see what they are like. A few pics of corals taken with Samsung s6 edge I have not adjusted colour or anything

Looking good.  The corals look very happy.

What made you think about changing from razors?
