    Well its been a tough couple of months, ive had 3 major snags

     

    1. My cheato all died back and the tank started to cover with green hair algae but i think thats starting to subside now. Fingers crossed.

     

    2. I went away for a couple of days and returned to find the power had tripped and the tank was down to 21 degrees and i lost my kole tang.

     

    3. Once the tank was back up and running one of the power heads caught fire underwater, luckily the wife was at hand and cut the power. All seemed ok but during the next week i lost 4 of my SPS colonies which were all growing at a staggering rate.

     

    GUTTED!!!!!!!!

     

    So it was time for a move around and i replaced the frags with some from my nano which ive now shut down, ive replaced the cheato and added an algae blennie, and some chromis. The tanks looking better than ever and as i said the green hair algae is in recession. Top tip - try and stay at home as sods law will always bite yer.

     

    Anyway here are the latest snaps of the tank at seven months in (im not giving up) enjoy.

     

    TREV C - sorry to hear you broke up the tank but cant wait to see the new build if the last was anything to go by, its still what im aiming for.

  2. picked up the tank yesterday morning. once i got it home the plumbing was started. the weir was built and installed and the back was painted. not an easy tank to work with, being so deep, and going through the base is new to me so im hoping it all goes well when i fill it. the extra depth makes the tank seem very big.
