New 100g Setup

Hi guys. 8 weeks of torture and my new tank arrives. It's been hard work setting this up and I've had no help whatsoever.

I have about 35 to 40 kilos of mature live rock in the system that just came straight from my old system. Added 8 damsels yesterday. Parameters seem stable.

Currently working on finishing touches on the plumbing to stop some micro bubbles.

I have 2 clowns, a regal tang and a BTA waiting to go in. I might move the cuc across in a minute.

Here's a few pics

Just moved across the remaining fish. Strangely my pink spot goby has gone missing. Hoping he's not dead somewhere in the rocks.

That is set up really well. Very clean. I'm jealous, I wish mine looked that neat.

Thanks I've just finished off mounting the controllers underneath. Il tidy up the wires too.


Going to start a refuge un in a week or so. Looking out for the best light that's not too big.

What do we think about a sand less aquarium and grow coralline algae, zoas and a couple of other corals on the bottom instead?

Bare bottom setups are usually used in sps specific tanks to help keep things pristine and sucking up detritus from around the bottom of rocks. I'd suggest using a sandbed so you can keep cool sandbed coral, like plates and brains.

I will be keeping sps, some lps and a few zoas. I won't really be keeping any softies. Even the ones in my tank I'm trying to get rid of!

I'm not the biggest fan of softies either. I do have some zoas, mushrooms, and ricordeas though. I'd trade them all for a nice brain coral.
