So set up my new Fluval evo last nite. Planning on a small mixed reef. Already swapped out the pump with a tunze 800l silent. Currently building media baskets to hold filter floss and bio home ultimate media.

So the water is in with some live rock this will be removed in a month or 2 once the inhabitants have moved onto my rock. So far only good guys iv seen crawling around copepods, feather duster worms, bristle stars and bristle worms, with the exception of 2 Asterina stars which I don't mind just have to keep check on there numbers.

Added 2 little Hardy hermits too to make sure there's a little ammonia being produced.

Going to upgrade the filtration next. Got a powerhead to fit and a Nano ATO so still got plenty of work to do.

Heres the InTank compartment 1 system. Iv got filterfloss in section one super easy to take out and change and biohome ultimate filter media. In total iv got 1kg in the filtration. As I have some in section 2 also in a home made eggcrate holder.

Love those inTank bits.  That Biohome media is supposed to be brilliant as well. 👍🏻

This little beauty went in yesterday. He was given prime real estate right at the top but decided overnight to move down to bottom of the tank.... no doubt will move again and again

They are devils arent they! I spent a couple of weeks 'in negotiation' with my nem. Eventually managed to work out the kind of things it seemed to want and managed to build a little hole which he seems to like but we can still see him and it isnt on top of anything else!

So far its behaving. Not bothered or gone near other corals etc but time shall tell. I'm happy if it wants to stay put now as I can still see it and its quite secluded. I dont want to have to evict it just yet

Further update. So far tank is doing well.

Params
Salinity 1.025
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0.2
Nitrate 2

Going through some pretty thick GHA its like the grinchs fur!!

Anemone is happy and settled.

These guys joined earlier but have taken to the return rather than the nem...
