    G’day all,

    Time for another Pic heavy update.

    The Tank has been cruising along and believe it or not I haven’t done a water change for 3 months.

    (You may be able to tell because of my sand bed)
    I stopped doing WC when my P04 & Nitrates were very low. (I assume this is because I use part Zeo & part AF)

    Things I have done in the past month was add some fish.

    One mandarin

    Two Pyjama cardinals

    This was because I had problems keeping my nutrient’s levels up. plus I couldn't help myself.

    While I have done very little in terms of maintenance, I am due to put in a few hours.

    My CALRX reactor need a good clean and I replace my Co2 bottle last night.

    A 4 liter CO2 bottle last's 6.5 months and my sump need a vacuum.

    My sandbed needs a good clean also….lol

    T5 are almost due to be replace

    I have attached a photo I took in May so you can see the growth in the past 5/6 months.

    Considering a lot’s of my large corals have been fragged often there is still a hell of a lot of growth

    Early on I lost two Milly’s due to low nutrient’s (well that’s what I think)

    But since then things have been flying.
    Enjoy...

    Thanks mate the transition takes forever. It's been at least 12 months and still a fair way to go.
