After seeing a cube tank with the most gorgeous nem in being sold as a set up we couldn't resist buying it.

It's been a fair bit of work and a long way to go as the tank had been neglected, but the tang, nem and clown are doing well. Eating and happy.

Still need to scape but not a massive priority at the moment. Just want to get all parameters stable and sort the tank itself out first.

Theres a few bits that are new to me like media and a reactor, both of which I need to do my homework on.

Lol. But yeah here's the pics of my new additions

Thanks:

All looks nice and healthy.

How big is the tank?
What reactors did you get with it?  What's been running in them?

It's an aquaone 275 with a 50l sump.
Bit small for the tang in regards to swimming space but there is only the clown and tang in there so the tang is happily swimming about the tank. Not interested in nori at the moment but enjoying mysis.

Theres a bubble magus reactor. He says it's carbon in it. But judging from the state of the tank and skimmer etc I doubt he's ever put any carbon in it since when he first got it

Hes been doing OK as the nem is healthy but he wasn't testing the water or cleaning skimmer. And skim was running that dry it was fully solid and not letting new skim up.

A bit more of a project than I would have liked but it's keeping us busy.

Tank is a little grubby around the top so hubby is wrapping the tank.

Yes just the one clown in there, he spends nearly all of his time in the nem. Even at feeding time he only darts out for a second or two lol
