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.

Bought a small pump, airstone and tubing for the 20L. Also bought two Fluval 50 to replace the current 30.

Then I'm going to try to put a couple plants I bought in, along with Flourish tabs.

If you have gravel, do you only need the tabs or would some of the Seachem chemicals help or be necessary?

Trimmed the planted tank. It was long overdue.

A bit of interior decorating, rearranging the smaller rocks and mounting the two small 'shrooms that just kept blowing around with the current.

Relocated one of the hard corals, the gorgonian, and a general rearrangement of the ground dwellers.

Repositioned the circulator so the gorgonian gets good current...

That's about all.
