Our new 125l tank with live rock (beginners)

We're 4 weeks in now. What do you all think?

Progress pics as follows:


All the stuff once the tank was in place.


Sand in.


First few pieces of live rock.


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.

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

"When you see a fish you don't think of its scales, do you? You think of its speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water... If I made fins and eyes and scales, I would arrest its movement, give a pattern or shape of reality. I want just the flash of its spirit." -Constantin Brancusi

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.

The new shrimp. We're adding another on Friday.



The hermit crab. The one time he wasn't doing this

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.
