Well, turns out that the Heater exploded at some point during the night, took out a 2" whole in the rear of the tank. Managed to salvage most of the Macro Algae that was inside. Might have to pull out the Fluval Spec 3 and try this again....

Bit of a kick in the nuts I admit. So been busy this weekend rummaging around in my spares collection. I have amassed a small hoard by this point. So SWMBO will be happy some of it at least is not taking up space in the spare room anymore.

Bit of fine work to do still, but the majority of the structural work is complete, need to pick up aquarium sealant and glue wall into place, rest of build will continue with wall in situ. Will finish building media rack and DIY weir comb for improved surface skimming. I am looking for some tiny random flow generator, might have to contact someone with a 3D printer...

Currently thinking of RFA and Sexy Shrimp tank.
Anyways a few build pictures below. Going to pick up a 15w preset and inkbird at the end of the month and an ATO that will add 20% to the system volume (2L)

Got the wall in place today, also more or less sorted out a plan for this reef now. Just have to wait until payday, putting this in the office to start end of the month.

Will go through the obligitary cycle, will add CuC and Macro (Codium) once diatoms appear. First stocking will be Zoas. Will grow frag and swap/sell these for SPS and slowly make the switch over.

Tight monthly budget on this one £25

Your wee tank is coming on nicely mate, that's a good price for the zoas aswell, I've been thinking about a jbs order myself sometime soon

Thanks, just need to dig out my rock racks and add them to the tank. The benefit of having the wall in place before adding the shelves is I know exactly how little space I have to move in here

Ok so decided that I will be focusing HEAVILY on Chalice Corals in here, as a result I do not need to include any shelves as I think that I can use teh plugs to place the chalices at different angles (vertical, horizontal, 45 degree etc) 
Now to find me some Chalices
