Well with the Hi-light planted shut down it was time to get started on the SW switch.

Tank cleaned, light stand built:

2 x Jwbao WP-25 on a twins controller
Reef Octopus BH-2000 HOB skimmer

DIY fuge made out of an AC-110 and a Marineland LED light.

So the tank is filled and all the rock is in, fish acclimated.

I am actually pretty happy with my rock work. It could be better but I'd need all the same type of rock rather than the piecemeal stuff I have now.

Still a little cloudy after moving all the rock around today.
Flow seems good, nothing setting on the sand but no sand storms. Using ELSE mode on the Jebaos.

Well everything is in and connected, the sand storm is cleared, still have a couple pieces of coral to place, but so far so good.

Well today sucked.

Went to clean my skimmer after supper, and in my turkey induced stupor I dropped it.
Broke the body.

Time for a new one.

Found this in my reef the other day just as the lights were starting to come on. Looks like Black Stomatella

Lookin' good

If you don't mind a suggestion, it looks like you've got your GSP on your main rockwork
I'd get it off there and put it on a chunk of rock on the sand
Unless you don't mind it taking over the whole pile of rock it's on :smile:

Realised I never posted pics of these recent additions.




Red spotted linckia starfish (Of course I never get a decent pick of his top side, never seem to find the camera when hes on the rocks)
