David's 45 CM Marine Cube


Recommended Posts

Okay, So it seems that there is a lot more progress on the marine than initially thought. So I've started it's own thread.

Here's how it is now. David, Jordan and I went down to Rye and picked up some snails, found some goby fish (which survived until we put them into the tank, too hot today!) and found two shrimp!

Got a new coral today, Green finger. We saved it from the back tank of Mentone Aquarium, poor guy was dying. Did a bit of a re-arrange, the Duncan wasn't very happy in full flow. Will move the open brains to the sand coz apparently they do better.

got a pair of clowns and a small hammer. There was a hitch hiking sea fan and a clam on it too. Don't think the clam will survive, but we'll see how it goes.

Duncan's aren't really liking the high flow, but they are stuck there now ):

Going to possibly purchase a new 3 ft tank :D and if the starphire cube doesn't sell we're gunna drill it/get an overflow box and use it as a frag tank.

Super excited.

Update on my tank.

Got some new corals and made a frag rack. Dosed some hardcore calcium- apparently you can overdose it haha.. so had to do a 50% water change. thankfully things are coming back to normal again.

Some pics of night time and with the MH at 50%

Frag rack- Egg crate superglued onto the back of a magnet cleaner. kinda so we can move it around in the light. Didn't do a very good job of the soft corals, turns out the tissue around the frags die and they un attach ):
