right here is an update of the tank





not too sure about the scape at the mo as it is just cycling

i have on order a new wave maker from boyu + a power head from boyu also have about 5 mor kg's or live rock waiting pickup giving me about 15kg and a better scape option

not too sure about leaving the dead coral in the tank, and also not too sure if i like the look of the refugium at the back of the tank

the more and more i read about the mm system the more i am inclined to remove the skimmer for a little hob under powered unit that incorporates a filter

Well i have been busy this evening finishing off the light unit i have been making just to find that the power wires i got wont work fully lol but the rest is finished

please forgive the crude hanging wires they are not a permanent fixture lol






just for show this is running off 2 x 48 LED, 48CM Light Moonlight Strip and i think it seems to have done quite well tbh what do you think ?

The above pics are with the flash on and the room's lights on aswell

with the room dark (just the tv on) camera on natural light without flash



and with the room's lights on and again camera on natural light without flash
