    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

    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
