    My Build - 1 Year Anniversary

    I'm just building a reef system, which were the first corals you added?

    Wow, absolutely beautiful! What's the one thing in your tank that you are most proud of?

    Thanks, I thought Mysis would be too large for the corals, but I feed it to my fish as a staple anyway. I tried a 10ml weekly shot of Marine Snow for a while, but am now giving frozen Cyclop eeze a go - not a lot of difference so far.

    My Build - Part II

    Thanks

    I just change the water weekly (miss the occasional week) and change the filter socks when I do it. If I think there is any loose bits of algae in the sump I will strain the water at the return heads with a media bag when I turn the pump back on. That only takes a couple of minutes.

    My MP10 power head also has a mode that lifts detritus up off the bottom and pushes toward the overflow - works well with my tank layout.

    Wow sorry I guess we don't get notified of comments in here - I would have replied sooner had I known this was here.

    This is the sand - the select one I believe. I'm happy with the new stuff - no problems so far. It's just big enough that I don't get a big sand-storm if my wrasse flashes near the bottom.
