Good things come to those who wait lol, it'll all be worth it in the end, I feel your pain though, waiting is a bit soul destroying at times lol

Deciding what to put in is the fun part lol I got my new 1000lph wave waker today and it's doing great, really improved the flow through the rock and my firefish is liking swimming against the flow and catching bits of food as they pass  :grin:

Beautiful colours on that firefish. Imagine it swimming amongst some Toxic Greens  <3
What's the coral plan?

Thanks:

Thank you it is a gorgeous wee fish, I can't wait to get some corals in but I've never had any before so I want to start slow, I'm thinking my first coral will either be GSP or possibly xenia, I love zoas though so I would like to get some of them as well and eventually get some nice coloured mushrooms and also kenya tree, any recommendations for an easy colourful first coral?

I have killed every Zoa frag I have tried. Colonies (20+ haeds) I can keep but I loose anything smaller.

Mushrooms are easy, I have also found that my Duncan has been nothing short of abused for about 3 months and is still looking good. I had good luck with Torch, Hammer and Fox corals and red Macro Algae

Thanks:

That's a shame about the zoas, I really like them aswell, I will probably try them but after hearing this I think I'll probably start with mushrooms or GSP, I really want to get some motion in the tank so GSP would be good for that, I've heard it can spread like mad but I think I'd be OK with that lol, do you have to feed Duncan and hammer corals?

You'll be fine with Zoa's just make sure you have stable water condition's that the key. a lot off people feel the urge to rush but building a reef is a slow process. GSP is great just place it on its own rock out the way or on a wall you want covering. You'll get there Looking good so far tho.

You can target feed with reef roids and the like, I tend not too as I broadcast feed when I feed my fish

Thank you, I only have the one fish for now so I'm guessing I'd probably be best to feed some coral food aswell as there won't be much floating around in the tank, I'm still showing Ammonia aswell just now but I did notice it dropped from 1ppm to 0.75 from yesterday to today so the bio filtration is definitely starting to build, hopefully it'll be cycled fully in a few weeks then I can pick some up
