Second tank

As promised (although not quite finished yet) my new tank. At the moment it’s in the dining room full of boxes that need unpacking from my house move.

There are quite a few livestock that aren’t in these pictures. Black black wrasse, yellow belly wrasse, Timor wrasse, watchman goby, pistol shrimps, Bengali cardinals, boxer shrimps, cleaner shrimps, a few star fish and a couple more gobies

At the moment I’m doing a water change every 2 weeks (57 litres) and dosing manually just whilst I get my head around automated dosing (I may need help with this later), for which I have bought ATI elements and a ghl dozer. I run a algae reactor which is growing chaeto like mad.

Unfortunately the photos I took appear to be to big for the site

Everything is just thrown into the tank and needs tidying but as I mentioned I’ve just moved and had to get it up and running.

Hopefully i’ll get it sorted soon

Great stuff mate looking forward to your tank thread and watching it grow.

Im sure @w3bbo can help you with the doser as he also uses GHL

Im sure @chris.viner87 runs an algae reactor.

Is your dosing unit an all in one version or a doser which runs of a GHL computer?

It looks like a stand alone, as it has all the direction buttons on the top. I bought off a reefer who was selling up

Update on tank. I lost a lot of fish to what I thought was white spot but it appears that it was new tank syndrome after my house move. Even with A well known tank starter chemical and live rock from my existing tank (nearly 2 years old) I had problems.
