Looks good mate I see you have a sand sifting goby, I had one for a while but got fed up with him dumping sand all over the place.

Just one point can you not hide the heater in the sump?.

Cheers

Pat.

Looks good well done. At this stage I would just be learning how to keep your water quality. You've got a good start there. Some of the fish there will turn pretty nasty as they mature.

Looking good. I agree with Pat, the goby can be a pain, my tank often resembles a snow shaker thanks to mine, lol. Was that an aptasia i spotted around the back? I've been fortunate with them, but they can become a nuisance.

Looks like a great start. Lots of room around the rockwork (plenty of space for water movement).

As said before I would try to hide the heater.

What is the upright pipe with the strainer on the end for?
