Rock all in and cemented, hopefully start filling this evening as got the ro unit going since this morning, nearly got 200 litres in the water butt, just need to get my containers out the shed so I can make up the other 200lts.
lots of holes for fish to swim through and loads of areas for corals to be mounted, hopefully eventually won't see the rock work once corals grow out.

Moved some of the corals over from holding tank as they weren't looking themselves, I have just plonked them in for now and will work out where they are going later.
in the pics the corals had been in tank for around 3 hours.
plan is to buy frags o ly and let them grow out.

Excuse the blues on pics as got new phone and still trying to work it out

Thanks:

Snails and crabs moved over with rest of corals, again corals just dumped in until the weekend when I will stick them in their places.

Stuck the zoa frags along bottom of rock work, will see how I get on as never had much success with zoa's,.
added a blue fairy wrasse as wanted a few different wrasses plus it will keep the bacteria going.
Candy canes are starting to puff up again as went down hill in the temp tank, Duncan and hammerhead doing well.
I have connected the doser up as dosing to keep alkalinity around 9dkh.
I have decided to go with the quantum range of liquids for dosing and have ordered them. But will find out what they have in stock on Monday.
I have also reserved a small blue eyed tang which I will hopefully collecting towards the end of next week.

Picked up The quantum stuff and a silver belly wrasse.
Will start testing parameters every 2 days over the next 2 weeks and monitor every thing to see what I need to dose etc.
