After losing my oldest pair of Banded Trochus last week (12/23, in fact) I got a water sample to my LFS for eval...

Nitrates & Nitrites were way high and Alk way low!

Had planned a couple of close-together 5g water changes today and Tuesday but made a significant alteration in my plans...

10g water change in the 29g with another 5g planned for Tuesday or Wednesday with a follow-up eval next weekend.

While filling up my quintet of 5g bladders with pre-mixed, I heard a pair of Mocha Chocolate Clownfish screaming, "TAKE US WITH YOU!" They're so tiny...how could I refuse?

And there was this Gorgonian...don't get me started!

The 2.5H is a killer, especially cos my tank sits on a 90cm high cupboard so it's a bit under 6ft high when the tops on. Ive got a 4ft ladder I use so I can get to the bottom at the back and I can only do that when there's at least 90 ltrs less water in it (and I'm a little taller than 6ft), if a plant gets pulled out, it stays out till the next pwc.
Don't get me wrong, it looks great that little bit higher than your standard tank but it comes at a price

Thanks!

Christmas Wrasse is in the 75g, safe and sound...

The 29g does look a bit clearer...though that could be perception and little more...hard to say.

The clowns look almost lost in their big home, even with the wrasse, rocks, and inverts sharing the space.
