    By andyales,

    I am new to the forum, my name is Andy. I have been keeping marine fish for about 4 years now and have learnt a lot during that time, like a lot of what not to do but also a lot of what should be done.
    I started with a BiOrb with a modified filter pump filled with carbon and phosphate pellets, sand substrate and live rock with an starry blennie and a pair of clowns, but quickly realised this wasn't a good setup, so upgraded.
    my upgraded and present setup is a Juwel LIDO 120 ltr tank with Juwel filter housing filled with live rock and filter floss, Juwel Protein skimmer ((Pre Juwel remod)which is rubbish), 2 power heads and an eheim surface skimmer, deep sand base with live rock back wall, pillar and outcrop. occupants of the tank are my original pair of Clowns, a male red scooter blennie, and a allen's damsel, a flaming scallop, a tube anemone, numerous turban snails, bubble bee snails, conch snail and  columbellid snails a blue legged hermit, and a couple of rock pool hermits (unsure of the variety). I also have a few varieties of marco algaes and also still plagued with hair algae and cyanobacteria algae.

    Hi everyone.


    I have been a tropical AQUARIUMIST for 20 years, until my last tank seals started to leak, so got a new tank and decided on trying Marine out.


    It has been a long road and a lot of modifications along the way but got there in the end, now enjoying my new tank.


    this is what my tank looks like, still bare, but liking the difference from tropical to marine.

    Morning all,

    im new to this forum after been suggested it by a family member!

    i have a 267ltr EA reef pro been keeping fish for years but only reef for probably 3yrs

    will soon be moving to a new house where I’d like to build a 72”x24”x24” reef tank but this probably won’t be for another year or so.




    By mrdave,

    Guys, I received a text last night from Grant ( @mr tap water ) telling me that he has closed his system down and moved it on. To say I was gob smacked is an understatement ! He has also asked to step down from Moderator but will continue to contribute to Reef Face as a member.

    I would like to thank Grant for all his hard work and input over the past few years and wish him luck in what ever he decides to do next. I feel it is a massive loss to the reefing community and truly hope he gets the salty bug back again soon.


    Thank you Grant !!!!!!!
