And now for the arrival of the new custom made 2000 litre system. The new and the old. You can see the reflection of the S650 in the glass. September 2019 the big build begins..... Page 70+

My view in the evenings as the lights dim and the systems go blue, it’s simply magical......

Here’s a video of the new system at around 9 1/2 months old. I hope you enjoy it.

The Regal is very sweet indeed and he's /or she's settled in very well.

I'm a little bit careful what I introduce now as I think many of the fish, especially the nasty damsels are very territorial. It's very amusing watching a damsel try to intimidate a trigger or Tang. Their like what you doing....! Lol

Great tank. The whole tank is great and that trigger pair really caught my eye

Hi MrMichael

The triggers are blue throats and are great to watch. I thought they were breeding a few months ago but nothing as yet as far as i know anyway!

Here's a close up of them. The male has the yellow fins.

I happened to have some time on my hands today so decided I might just call around at my LFS (whilst waiting delivery of my frags this Thursday!) and I happen to see a few things that's seemed rather nice! So you can guess what happened next!

I got me 5 beautiful Anthias and a wrasse that's yellow!

So say hello to my new little friends!

I also purchased an Elegance Coral which is absolutely stunning. It's still coming out after adding to tank and is at the middle front but I'll take a better photo when it's fully out
