Having a constant supply of pods would be the best way I'd imagine, lol I love your enthusiasm wanting 3 pairs to start off with, that would be an awesome looking tank, even better if they started breeding for you

Would be although I have concerns about flow with the Dwarf Ponies. Cant have sand if I want them to breed either. I do have a spare Fluval Spec 3 that could house a pair....hmmmmm

Would love to. But that would be a divorce right there. Not ready for that yet.  :grin:

Ok well got some of the potential livestock, also will be making a review of how this was packaged and posted out.


I ordered a couple of "easy" SPS Frags
-Sunset Montipora
-An unknown Psammacro
-Green Pavona (Branching)

Very well packaged (postage cost £8.70)


Each frag came in a pot, each pot had a disc of Styrofoam cut to fit and the frag placed in this so that the Coral is suspended and could not move in the water. Very clever.


Waiting for my lights to come on now, in about an hours time


I plan on leaving these to encrust over the plugs before I get them into the Pico (when set up)

Thanks:

That’s such a better way of packaging frags.
Which company did you use?

Was a classified on ultimate Reef. Pretty good site for trades and sales.

Lights on shots, plus my Duncan has finally found a placement where it is happy. This is the first coral I ever purchased back in April and has been pissed off the entire time!!!

It's looking good man, starting to take shape now

Although the Mrs does want a Little Mermaid themed Eel Tank (Ursula's Lair), that'll be when i can  a 75G  and can afford the TMC Reefrock Shapes to build the lair itself.


Well the stand has arrived today so I can play again at lunch time, I still plan on cycling this over the Holiday shut down. Been testing some little ATO devise for Nano's lately and a 1 Gallon of RODI lasts approximately a month at current evaporation levels so I know that I am "fine" with that and leaving it over the break. I have also installed some back up power (Tank is now on a Generator Circuit as well as CCTV) :D


Coming together slowly.

So had a thought while I was driving into work this morning, I have the spare Fluval Spec 3 which time and time again I think would make a great SPS Tank due to the dimensions, this should fit under the section where I wanted the SPS corals and leave me with the Pets at Home cheapo as the Macro Algae Tank.


Going to play at lunch see what it looks like and if i have space for a light and whether the drop will be enough for the surge
