    At $3k for two gen4 pro's it's going to be enough light whether the tank likes it or not!!

    I think your tank will like it, and any other reef tank in a 1km radius... haha :p

    100L in water changes done so far this week! :) Another 50L to do tonight and then again tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday! That'll be 300L in water changes done in a week which is pretty much 100%! Should clear things up nicely. I'm using NSW at the moment due to it's ease but I'm thinking about getting a 25kg bag of Red Sea Blue Bucket tomorrow to start getting some more controlled water going through the tank :D

    All in preparations for some goodies that will be arriving next week! :D haha

    Nice. Can’t wait to see the pickups. Can’t seem to go wrong with Red Sea blue bucket.

    Me either! Coming from a very reputable source and I'm excited!! I've been a big fan and user of RS Blue Bucket! Used it for years and going back now :)

    I HAAAVVVEEEE AAACCCRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO'S *ahem*

    Today I added several tester pieces into the tank :) a shortcake, a spath and a tricolour type thing! Should give a well covered base to know what's going on in the tank, in time for some Red Dragon, WWC Pink Cadillac and Bubblegum Digi to arrive for me later this week :D

    Your LFS looks like it gets some pretty nice acro's in. I haven't seen a lot of that around here!

    RE: Clam
    I have found that clams are finicky, and better not kept by me. I've gone through probably about 10, sold some, killed some, I love them, but I don't expect I'll try them anymore, just like Mandarin's, even the ones that eat frozen.

    Oh yeah, he doesn't muck about!! Sustainable Reefs are where most of it comes from and they are hands down the best acro supplier in Aus! lol

    I've never had any troubles with clams which is why the loss of my maxima was so upsetting and inexplicable. I'll definitely be getting some more in the future though :) Just have to come across the right one :) lol

    If you ever want or need an excuse to try some new supplements, please try the new three products from Coral Essentials!! The missing link for acro's! This is a mates tank under halides at full sun lol no blue led's in this shot

    Yep, the cheapest ghetto mod ever! haha I can't wait to mount it then fill the tank with pretties!! :D

    haha it cuts the noise of the fans by about 70% and it also acts as a dust filter for the light as our apartment is as airtight as a sieve lol

    Join the "Coral Essentials Support Group" facebook group as he's been terrorising that with plenty of pics ;)

    We got a second kitten in late December so we now have a two cat household again. Let me introduce the naughtiest kitten in the world, Agatha:
    [​IMG]

    She's an Australian Bombay or known as a Mandalay here and we got lucky getting her so soon as there's only 4 breeders in the country and the waiting list is usually 2 years! Our Burmese, Minsky, wasn't particularly pleased by this little ball of terror but they do alright now!

    Don't let her fool you, she's extremely cheeky!

    She's even prettier than I was expecting!! Top Lids make an absolutely GORGEOUS lid and I can't recommend them enough, so go and buy one! Lol
