hahaha! Pai seh bro, been busy.. Heres a tiny update..

Skimmer churning out yellowish skimmate.. probably due to low bioload at the moment.


Due to the space taken up by the overflow compartment, a big space were left empty at the back. wiring are not hidden and looks hideous.. DIY-ed a box to cover things up!




after placing the box in!


Here's a video update as well!

Thanks guys!

Update:

Bought 2 packs of live copepods to seed the tank. Turns out to be too much and fishes were having a great meal!


Day 9 of set up, 9 vials of Biodigest had went in at 1 vial/day. Rocks are almost covered in brown algae.

Update:

Today is day 14 of set up. I have measured all of my parameters (all using salifert test kit)

No3 - 2ppm
po4 - 0.001 - 0.003
Ca - 400ppm
kH - 7.8dkh
Mg - 1320ppm
Potassium - 370ppm


Also added 3 dispar and 2 blue eye anthias, was planning to get only 3 - 4 anthias but they are simply too beautiful to resist!

Getting ready to swim in their new home


Just went in..


The next day, all 5 started feeding on live brine shrimp just hours after adding into the tank, the blue eyes were particularly stable.




Show casing some other fishes, Midas blenny, bought this piece as a risk during my "blue tub" period and im glad its doing exceptionally well.


Fire goby, beautiful finnage, a pity it hides most of the time


Also bought 8 of these interesting spiny star astrea, first time is see them and was recommended by a friend to be very effective in algae eating!


Also brought back some zoas that were kept in a friend's tank, amazing growth and color in his tank!


Brought back this radioactive bn to 'test water' too


As well as this aussie duncan
