Re: advice from people in the know!! #571
no your not boring me thats exactly the kind of info i require! i dont know much about LR so that kind of info is much appreciated. i belive it fiji rock and they are doing it at £160 for a 20 kg box(should be £200 a box) cos iv got the tank though them and they have advised 4 to 4-1/2 box's of LR sholud be about right so leggy does that sound about right??and i thought it was a good price what do you think?
Wharf aquatics are always winning awards with pfk so im trusting them quite a bit again really appreciate the help

Re: advice from people in the know!! #573
yeah it's pretty big but as the saying goes only bad things happen quickly in a marine tank so thought if i can get a big tank right first time then i wont want to upgrade im not new to fish keeping just new to marine and iv been doing my homework (although most info available is hugely contradicting!) right the tank is entirly new in fact its still under construction by wharf aquatics and i gave them free reign of the design so it has refugum, auto topup, deltec skimmer, reef clean system 2x metal halides and t5 lighting. not sure yet of all the other details untill i see them again. The live rock is cured but not mature and i presume i'l be using live sand.And yeah so far its running into thousands of pounds so i do need to get it right im in no hurry for fish but i am quite eager to see the tank up and running with LR in it as its the center piece of my living room!! thats all i needed to know about the tangs thats why i asked the question so thanks for that! As for the snails i dont have a problem with handling them or with them in general just wondered if their was other options!
many thanks for the info your good people

advice from people in the know!! #575
hi there im new here and the soon to be proud owner of my 1st marine tank! what i wanted from you guys n girls is a little advice about stocking my tank. It's a 560l or 125 gallon tank with large sump deltec skimmer etc and will be a reef system with 80kg LR

in a tank this size just how big a clean up crew will i need and what are my realistic choices as im not the biggest fan of snails although i understand i WILL need them lol

one other thing when i eventually get to the point of adding fish will i able to have yellow tang's and are they advisable for 1st time keepers of marine fish??

many thanks people

Re: Power cut back-ups. #576
petrol generator is the only true way of supplying energy for any length of time although for short bursts with automatic change over a ups would work only in my profesional opinion they can be pretty unreliable as you only find out the batteries have failed when you need them and by then its too late!
