I just remembered that yesterday my tank was officially 3 years old, and I guess now mature

So, here are a few pictures, probably posted before showing the development of the tank over the years, and wow what a journey this has been.

And just to recall this is pretty much my first fish tank of any kind

The adventure so far........

Happy anniversary.
Quite a transformation it made in the past years.
Just a little, it’s quiet a comparison when you see the pictures together and were I started out

So I arrived back from Spain yesterday, and all is well, infact the tank was looking beautiful in the evening.

I cleaned the dirty glass and then thought, I’ll turn the protein skimmer up a bit.

And then I spent all evening with it over skimming, the old skimmate went back out of the container into the tank, which made it go even crazier. The Tunze ATO was freaking out to top the water up....

So I had to turn the skimmer back right down, and now I’ll have to tune it back in again, having had it working perfectly well for months while I’ve been away with no issues!

Shaun, KEEP YOU FLIPPING HANDS OFF THINGS!!! Lol

Happy tankiversary! And we've all been there - let me just tweak this one little thing and all heck breaks loose.
Lol! I think it’s the constant striving for perfection, to make something better, but it doesn’t always work.

And this is the exact reason I don’t touch anything the few weeks before I leave the tank (unless it’s vital)

So I was bored today, left work early, and thought mmmm I’ll call at a shop....

And into my bag fell

Yellow Goby
Silver Belly Wrasse
Sailfin Tang
Heralds Angelfish

And with self control and not wishing to empty all there tanks of fish I left, promptly!

But they had a small emperor angelfish and a small blue faced angelfish and I really want them, but I know they might eat the contents of my tank, but they might not, mmmmmm
