After 3 days things are looking much better!

Throwing Rhizophora apiculata propagules in to help suck up some of the nutrients as well. Check out the root growth after just 3 days!

Taking a break.

After a whole week of having that UV system running and the coral chips starting to clog up, I've got the water this clear:

Care to share how many tanks you are planning on building/have been built and state the purpose of each tank?

Are all tanks connected with each other?

I'll be building four 10m x 10m x 2.4m tanks and one 80m x 17m x 10m tank. They won't be connected.

What's that plant boss!

Is it suitable for smaller tanks like 4ft one too?

It's Caulerpa sertularioides. I'm not sure how suitable they are for smaller tanks, they've been known to smother coral. But for a large tank like this with lots of herbivores, it's brilliant.

There's some good information available here:

And if you'd like some, why don't we do some barter trade? I'll give you 1kg of C. sertularioides for a bag of C0 sand =D

Wow 1kg sounds like a lot! I think I just needa few, my tank is only 90 gallons! What's CO sand btw?

It's that fine white sand normally used in Deep Sand Beds

So I finally got my lobsters in... Specifically Panulirus polyphagus

And a few rather massive Diadema setosum as well.

I'd love to know what this is though... Anyone know exactly what species of coral it is?

And several of these beautiful peacock soles! Pardachirus pavoninus
