Hi Guys

54 posts in this topic

Yes it's quite normal with new skimmers when doing water changes or even adding anything to the water to go mad for a brief time but as the skimmer beds in it won't be as bad in the meantime try taking the lid off the Collection cup or rising the skimmer slightly higher when doing water changes until it settles.

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.

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 ?

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 :)

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

They are prone to do so Chris..

Always sad when we lose a fish or coral pal but part of the hobby unfortunately . Nice choice on the light by the way, you must have shares in Kraken Corals now lol
