    Hi guys, I've just got the V2 Ilumenaire 1200 - what are the best settings please ? My tank is 900w x 750d x 270h I've looked on google but the settings they've given looks fairly dim but I don't want to bleach my corals by setting it too high Thanks
  3. Hi Guys

    LOL TBH I don't know any other shops where I'm confident of things being dipped and fish being good eaters etc..

    Welcome, I think your tank's going to look awesome as you build it back up

  6. Hi Guys

    Hi guys, hawkfish has committed suicide and managed to jump through a 2cm x 2cm gap between the tank and lid :( also my Fromia is no longer. However I've got a new lighting unit - a V2 Iluminaire 1200 that I'm setting up this weekend and an exquisite wrasse which settled in straight away. Hopefully the better lighting unit will help my corals back to their former glory. I'll let you know
  7. Hi Guys

    Hi Guys, back from working away again. The tank seems to be finally become established and after a few minor hiccups (Asterina, Aptasia etc) I'm hoping I'm almost there BTW I think my hawkfish has eaten my peppermint shrimp on the second day of having the shrimp in the tank. I'll post a new photo tomorrow when the camera battery is charged
  8. what are these ?

    Hi and thanks again for the advice
  9. what are these ?

    Hi, thanks for the advice I've pulled out all the ones I can see and I'll keep my eye out for any further ones. I've ordered a HOB refugium which should come sometime next week. What are the best plants etc for it please ? I was gonna try and keep copepods in there as well. I was checking youtube videos and a few of them were talking about chaeto for the refugium (hope the spelling is right) so I was going to ask where the best place to get it if that's the right stuff ? Also, after checking the identification guides on google I think the starfish is a Fromia Indica not a red Linckia, but it seems to spend most of it's time on my zooids instead of any crap that's on the bottom ? Thanks
  10. what are these ?

    Hi, I think I have found Asterina starfish also, about 3 or 4 I think - tiny (3 - 4mm) little white starfish, should I leaver them or try to get them out ? I have a red Linkia starfish so I'm not sure whether to get a Harlequin shrimp which will eat the Asterinas but also my Linkia ? Thanks
  11. what are these ?

    HI, Thanks for the quick reply. So I'm ok to just leave them be ?
  12. what are these ?

    Hi Guys, just got back from my holiday and found some white tube things on one of my GSP, can anyone help me identify them and what I should do please ?
  13. Hi Guys

    Hi everyone back from my holidays and just had the water tested. Everything is looking good and I'm VERY happy to say I can't see any more aiptasia. However, on one of my GSP I've got some little white tube thingies and I think maybe some kind of tube worm ? I've attached a pic if anyone can help please ? Thanks
  14. Hi Guys

    Hi, Thanks for the advice. Today I'm doing water change and had everything tested - going on holiday for a couple of weeks. My mates coming in to feed and check the tank whilst I'm away. Good news is there's been new new aiptasia since the last one 2 weeks ago so I'm hioping it's all clear now - I'll know more when I get back.
  15. Hi Guys

    Hi rock is now washed etc and back in the tank - had a problem with the bubble magus E3 already - I've found that when I did my water change yesterday I topped it up slightly more than normal. This made the skimmer overflow constantly no matter what i did to the intake etc. so I took out about 1 1/2 gallon and it's working OK again - is that normal for a skimmer to be sensitive to the water levels ?
