This tank is cruising along quite nicely. But, lol, I have decided to move all the corals to another tank i now have setup (its not yet ready for the coral move though) The damsels are getting swapped out for different livestock.

So this tank will end up being liverock with fish only, i am eying off a lionfish to put in here (will upgrade when needed)

Will keep you updated as things change

Thanks Maj :)

A new development. Working in a pet store is dangerous lol I am in the process of buying a brand spankin new marine tank. This one is sumped, which will make things tidy and even has a section in the sump to use for quarantine.....

I had to head into work today to pick up a new heater and i now get to choose between the one i originally was getting and the brand new model coming.....thinking the new model may be the way i go, it really depends on how it looks, as the one already in store will suit my decor perfectly.

Will keep you updated

Using your sump for quarantine is risky, in that if they have a fungus, virus, etc., it is now in the water being pumped back into your display. Just my 2 cents worth

No...It has a section in the sump, NOT part of the sump, for quarantine. There is no risk of passing anything onto the main tank itself
