Our new 125l tank with live rock (beginners)
 
We're 4 weeks in now. What do you all think?

Progress pics as follows:

Current set up, no fish yet, just a crab and snail that came in the rock.

Same again, different angle.

Same, going to leave it another 2 weeks then look for some soft coral.

This is 'Slug' our snail. We've only seen the crab, Leonard Crabs, the once.

Great Rockwork. This tank will look amazing in 6 months+. :)

Can't wait to see this one once you have it established and get some residents in it! The rocks look great!

Oh...Will you have FOWLR or Reef?

Matt and Fran 03-12-2008 06:57 AM

Reef. We added a cleaner shrimp and a hermit crab last night. Hopefully in two weeks we'll be adding our first fish if everything goes to plan. We're not rushing anything though, if it takes a bit longer than so be it. We'll upload some more photos later. Thanks for the positive comments.

Since our last post we've bought a few corals, 2 x clownfish, 2 x psychedelic mandarins, a coral beauty and a bicolor dwarf. Here's some photos of the new additions to our tank.
