I'm actually considering taking a couple of limbs off of my Kenya tree coral and giving fragging a go for the first time, I could give you a one or two pieces if you'd like, this is the one here I'd be fragging

Things are starting to run a lot smoother now, I can't believe I used to think saltwater was so difficult lol I have gone 8 days now since my last water change and my parameters are all good, salinity 1.024, amm 0.00-0.25, nitrite and nitrate both 0.00 and ph 7.8

Here's the promised pic of my anthia now he is settled in and out in the open all the time now, love this little nano, definitely giving me the bug for a bigger tank though lol

Beginners Questions / Re: Macro algae - what should I know?
« Last post by Ratvan on Today at 11:04:09 am »
Looks good, be aware that some of the Algae (the Caulerpa and the Cryptonemia) will get some die off as it acclimates to your system, this is normal.


Nutrient wise these need both Nitrates and Phosphates so if you are running any phosgaurd type products stop as this will starve the macro's. I'd just feed as normal, when the Macro Algae settles in you should slowly see the other "pest" algae's in the tank slowly disappear. What foods are you feeding your fish? Is it High Protein? These foods usually leech Phosphates and Nitrates into the water

I've been using since 5 am scrummaging around for something to use to attach the pieces to.  Finally decided on making my own little bits of rock using some "Stone fix" cement.

Placing them in the tank was a mission as I can't easily reach the bottom half of my tank as I'm vertically challenged.   

After 1 hour of faffing trying to place them just right, I stand back to look at my creation and nothing. I guess they'll need to grow into their new surroundings 😂

Still very happy with what I got, but really hope I figure out how to

A.  Keep the algae alive
B.  How to place things easier in the future...

Here are some pics of my endeavour 😀

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.

Would love to. But that would be a divorce right there. Not ready for that yet.  :grin:
That's fair enough man I know that feeling lol, I'm already spending too much time with the tank ( allegedly) lol.
It's looking good man, starting to take shape now
