Do yourself a little favor and skooch your tank a bit to the right so that you can clean the glass easier with your cleaner magnet. Peace and Welcome.

Thank you very much!

I have a bit of space but it does get slightly narrow. As handy as the magnetic scrapers are, I really want to keep a clean look with this set up so will purchase a long handled scraper. What do you use? Any recommendations?

That is crazy! Imagine not being able to have fish because of not QT'ing..

Looks good man! Smart idea having it under your DT.

I have 2 smaller tanks which I can use. Need to research a bit more on what exactly is required in terms of 1,
do I medicate everything (inc healthy looking) or just the fish that physically have something wrong?

Every fish I buy gets treated for Ich with Copper for two weeks. After that I monitor the fish for an additional two weeks in my Hospital Tank to make sure everything looks okay. If I see anything weird or if the fish is not eating, I treat for worms, flukes and that kinda thing. At this point most reefers would move the fish to their display tank, but I move the fish to my Coral Quarantine Tank for an additional 60 days. So my Quarantine process for fish is a total of 90 Days.

I play it really safe and I also want to make sure the fish is healthy as possible before going into my display tank.

I use a magnet cleaner and a long handled scraper for hard bits awkward to clean.

Hey Guys & Gals,

I wanted to ask if any of you have had any sort of regret when it comes to your aquarium, stuff like not buying a certain piece of equipment or even starting a marine reef tank in the first place?!
