Hi Gav


Tank looks real nice!
I see your in Inverness, I'm over in Ullapool.. Just about to set up a new tank, Had one years ago but had to get rid of it.
Do you get your corals and fish from Planet Ocean or Simpsons?


Cheers James

Thanks:

Hi @jmac80  , I use planet ocean in conon bridge , far better quality of fish and coral .

Just to update a bit , the tank has now been moved and now awaiting resetting up , all coral rock and fish are in a 4' tank at the moment during the shift . All going well so far 😄

Hi Gav,

I haven’t been on for a while. How is your acan collection coming along?

Hi @Paddone  , I've just moved house which was quite a task , I've two left out the three I had which are both growing well now with several heads , I'll be posting a proper update once I'm a little more organized and some pics to go with .
I had a few losses during the move , fish and coral , which was a bit gutting , but a few benefits too , being able to deal with several awkward to reach aip's , a total rescape and I caught the last hitchhiker crab .
So all in not too bad .

Things have been really busy with the house move and now the kids are off school for the summer , the tank has been running for a few weeks now and all my hard work killing off aiptaisia seems to have been a bit of a waste as they're back again in just as many if not more than before . I really have my doubts about the ability of the products sold to truly kill these off so it will be aip eating nudi's added shortly .
During the move I lost nearly all my SPS and several more sensitive LPS , a few smaller fish and PB tang .
I've also found my control valve on the Syphon had been leaking past the o ring on the flanged connection and had been dripping out with the sump onto the carpet 🙄 ,  I've managed to get around this simply turning the valve around which allows it to now drip into the sump at the moment until I get a new o ring . This has ment that the tank has been losing salt water for a few weeks which has been replaced with RO dropping the salinity rather low , I've since managed to bring this back up .
 Last weekend the tank tested up fine so I've started to add some more new coral and fish , a few SPS frags , hysterix's and guttatus , a couple of LPS , purple hammer and a torch and a red sea blue tang which all seem to have settled fine . The tank has been completely re-scaped with the rocks set out different to my previous scape . I've been slowly cleaning and re adding my previous existing sand , I've went down this route to avoid having to start again removing any Po4 from new sand . It's a bit tedious cleaning it a handful at a time but I'm doing this over a bit of time so that the skimmer can remove anything left after each bit added back .

@Paddone I've two out of the three types of acans left , they have been growing very well throughout the move ( strangely ) with each having around a dozen heads . My candy canes have also had quite a growth spurt splitting into new heads quicker than they were previously .

I'll add some pics later today once the lights are on and up 😀

 

Thanks:
