Thank youlongers said:Amazing set up Panter . Still going strong? That looks like a serious amount of work to set up and keep running.
Panter said:Thank you
Yup still going strong. I had a lot of problems with an angel fish that kept scoffing the corals and then a problem with colour loss but its all on the up again now.
I must admit though it does take a bit of commitment to keep on top of things.
Yep, thanks! I've done a lot of reading in the last couple of weeks, and have gone the safestart route (bacteria in a bottle) with a couple of guppies. It's perhaps not quite the purist way, but there's not a hint of ammonia or nitrite in sight, and nitrate is slowly increasing.yorkshiregoth said:Don't be in too much of a rush to add the fish to the water. Make sure you 'cycle' the water first before adding the fish otherwise they are likely to be ex-fish rather quick. Also don't add too many fish as this will mess up the Ph of the water.
