    90g Sw Build...eek!

    Thanks @stella1979 and @xiholdtruex - it is definitely a tough one! At the moment, the plan is to move the tank and see how it goes when we get to the new house. I won't be buying horses over winter (if I can stick to my guns lol), so can get into the routine and see how it works out while we...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    So, we sold our house and will have to move the tank. Having a should I/shouldn't I debate in my head about moving the whole thing and just wondering if I should break it down. Costs are going to be huge with a new mortgage, travelling costs to work, and I'll be buying a couple of horses now...

    Help Best Way To Move A Reef Tank

    Thanks all, I'll have a think. Luckily we should have time to plan and I definitely won't be rushing into anything. Now wondering if I hire a guy from my LFS who has been very, very good to us whether he'll bring some stuff from him store. I feel a trip to the LFS coming on

    Help Best Way To Move A Reef Tank

    The sand is only a couple of centimeters deep, nothing major. The move will be about an hour to hour and a half's drive away, and likely to be in Sept/Oct at the earliest. My biggest concern is about the weight of the tank - I'm not that physically strong, my parents are both OAPs and I don't...

    Help Best Way To Move A Reef Tank

    I am facing the prospect of having to move my 90g reef tank in the next few months. I've never moved such a big tank before so slightly freaking out. I would plan to replace the sand (keeping a cup or two of the old sand to seed the new stuff). Maybe putting rock in some sort of container with...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    After a quiet few weeks, a lovely heat wave came along and bleached my forest fire monti. Amazingly, that's the only piece who's keeled over (hoping it'll make a comeback and feeding heavily now...fingers crossed). I also finally caved and bought a mandarin lol. Here is the little cutie he...

    Tank seems to have recovered (phew!). Cant remember if I mentioned but we set up a doser a few weeks ago so hopefully corals will start growing a bit quicker. Picked up a gorgeous heliofungia a couple of months ago which looks incredible. The Christmas tree leather is growing at an alarming rate...

    Welllll.....the toadstool necrotised and is now dead :inpain::banghead::shifty:. All my other leathers sulked for a while but are coming back around after a tank-wide shed. I have two little frags left, one I think is almost certain to melt, the other one is possibly a little more hopeful...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    I took the plunge today! I worked out that the leather was attached to my zoa rock at the top then the trunk was attached to another rock, so took both the rocks it was attached to out, peeled it off the zoa rock and then fragged it. The toadstool and the frags went into a qt tank I had set up...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    Yes, that's why I'm seeking input before I actually do it lol. My other option is to try and detach it from the rocks but tbh I don't think I will be able to without knocking a bunch of stuff down, and I kinda like how the leather is holding onto them as it gives it all a lot more stability...

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    Would appreciate people's thoughts - I have a leather who is getting pretty massive and it's starting to smother my zoa rock. It needs to be fragged down to a reasonable size again. However, it is attached to about 4 different rocks so taking it out to do this is going to be pretty much...

    Managed to get a pic of the torch showing the green base during water change today!

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    Few pics. Not all are new but dont think I've posted before/much of The torch is really beautiful, it has a green base that you just get flashes of as it waves around. Tried for ages to get a photo but I just cant see to get the timing right lol. The trumpets I got from a local reefer who was...

    Been on a mini coral splurge this week lol. Little baby bubble coral arrived in the post yesterday, I'm picking up some green trumpets on Sunday from a local reefer, and I've got a blue goni frag and some red people eaters waiting to be posted out I have a problem, I admit it. Finding good...

    Thanks! Yes that's a coral beauty, his name is Jaws as he swims around looking for fish to beat up lol. He is definitely the boss! Although he gets a run for his money from the female clownfish (aka big momma). The others try to stay out of his way lol. He is the biggest coral beauty I've ever seen

    Full tank shot for anyone wanting to see how it's getting on. Everything still walking up but not looking too shabby I think

    90g Sw Build...eek!

    Ahh thank you all, in the end I stuck some little plastic pieces on the edges of it so that it kinda hangs off the edges of the glass braces so it's workable until I find the willpower to DIY one (probably in 10 years, my DIY skills currently are at -10 points, lol). Interesting that the corals...

    So...finally got my hands on the mesh lid from my LFS yesterday...except he didn't put the hanging clips on the edges! Also it hasn't been cut straight so there's a gaping hole in one of the corners. Sigh. I'm not sure what to do next tbh. As the tank was custom made I may email the company...
