  1. Paul's Red Sea Reefer 450L

    A few shots of tank under blues. The tank will be 4 years old next month and i am really happy with how it has remained stable and still getting good growth and colour across most corals Mind you it definitely needs a trim as a few are too big and starting to restrict flow from end to end Was able to get some nice shots of a few corals starting to pop under blues And finally one of my favourites, a gold rush monti Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I have a bubble coral frag cut and settled for last 3 weeks or so. Nice and plump with tentacles extending to feed so would say it is ready Are you still interested? Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am going to frags some pieces at weekend and then let them rest for a couple of weeks to ensure they plump up and tentacles extend for feeding. Will let you know when ready Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fragged my bubble coral a month ago and then saw a pic of when I first got it, about 4 years ago. Frag when I 1st bought it Colony last night Fragged from a colony a month ago Definitely a slow grower as not fragged before but nothing beats growing out a frag over time into something substantially bigger. Need to frag a few more pieces as tentacles are now extending into other corals and it is bloody aggressive Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. With the above ban coming in during the past 7 days and many of the FB groups being closed down where are people selling, buying and swapping their corals? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not a lot happening with tank as ticking over nicely. Fish are nice and healthy and the 4 peacock wrasse have grown and coloured up well. This is one of my favourites though and eats frozen too I have however picked up some nice frags though that cost me a few pennies - Beach bum Tropic thunder Gold rush and A very small red Goni Will place onto rocks once settled Have 19 fish and have more than enough room and bioload for probably another 10ish but undecided in what to add, no rush though Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Stumbled across this photo earlier today of probably my favourite ever coral. This was taken about 2 years ago and since then it almost perished but rescued 2 heads that are now 5 so only another couple of years to get it back to this beauty. Paul Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    No problem. Keep us updated Also are you gonna run 24/7 or opposite to lights? Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. High nitrates

    Your call but i would switch off the pearls and check parameters twice per week and see what happens. The downside is once you switch off the bacteria will die once removed so you will have to do something else, should they have actually been working and ALR takes time to kick in. I have an ALR1 and rowa and the combination takes care of both po4 and n03 but every set up is different. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    tank has been relatively untouched since setting up but corals have taken over and the flow in tank is not as good as it once was. Gonna clear some rock and corals. Yes I have said that before, so yesterday I removed a piece of rock and coral that must be about 15 inches high and 7 to 8 inches wide. I have fragged all of the colonies and are now sitting in the frag tank. This is before And this is after Now need to clear the sand bed as lots of dead frags and also to the left of the rock is a pocillopora damicornis which has grown out of nowhere and whilst that is great it is not wanted. The before photo was taken on 16th November and in a month the top section has grown rapidly. Cannot believe it. Paul Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    You can run it external but make sure you get jubilee clips otherwise you could have the pipe work pop off. Did you get cheats with it? Will take a bit of time to kick in so I would increase water changes and limit feeding. Difficult to say about pearls as do not know what affect it is having.
