I've about 13kg of live rock, a tunze 6025 wavemaker. The first wild life went in at weekend 5 scarlet hermit crab and 5 nassarius snails.

Thanks, I think I'm going to tweak the middle rock by rotating it slightly to show more rock and tighten the gaps up. I've also added two tiny bits of rock to the right side on the sand to pull the feature out. I'll try get a new picture up tomorrow.

Update: Probably a bit like playing spot the difference.

I've sligtly elongated the structure, rotated the right base rock to give more land for coral placement, pulled the centre rock forward into the light againto give coral options as it was doing nothing hidden under the plate and built a mini pinnacle which probably won't last long as it will topple as soon as a snail/crab gets near it.

I'm still not 100% sure on the plate but thinking once some coarls get going it will look better.

Evening

came across the build. Looks good. Are you messing with me on the rock changes. I like the rock but they all look the same to me. But, lots of stuff looks alike to me so I am not a good judge. Keep updating the pics. Progress looks good.

The rock changes were fairly subtle and didn't really show up in the photos. I had a few major alterations before I joined up here.

I just need to get my head around the lighting now, to strike a balance between what I like to look at and whats good for the corals.

I re did my rockwork last night.



@mrbluewildcats my duncan was doing great under my first lights. But since the new lights went on it harder to keeo happy. Any coral added after the new lights are fine its just getting the older ones adjusted.
 

How do you keep your aquarium temperatures down during the hot months?
