Downsizing

Frag Tank.

I’ve dropped the ball on the aquariums since Koh Samui. It’s amazing how easily things go out of whack if you don’t keep up your weekly water changes! A month ago I decided to break down the Frag Tank as 3 tanks is just too much upkeep. This weekend I’m breaking down the Nuvo, and putting all corals from it into the Fluval Edge (and donating the fish back to my local fish store).

Pile it on THEN strip it back! Just another excellent example of me going too hard on shit I’m into LOL!

Mia Mao Mao!

Mum told me a couple of days ago that Mia was going nuts! She’d lost her voice and was running up and down the stairs like mad. Funny thing is Pou my last flatmate said the same thing as I was returning from Japan last year. Rob my Zen business partner swears by it; that animals know when their masters return! I think it’s all true!

She’s been so crazy in love with me since I’ve been back! She was a lap cat before, but now she’s a cuddle monster!!!

Fish Tank update

damage

edge2

grate

nuvo

Long time no update! Tank is doing well, but lighting is starting to become an issue. The light is so off centre/towards the back that a lot of corals are living in shade now. Now quite sure what to do about it, might just let things be.

I had a MASSIVE issue. I packed the filter in the Edge with too much media, and over the span of a day the edge leaked, and it sits on MDF board, so the entire tank almost fell through the air-conditioning chute it sits on!!! I’ve moved the tank to the kitchen bench for now and will repair the bench ASAP.

The Nuvo is doing well too. A month or so ago I noticed my 6-Line was missing. Turns out he jumped over the back wall and into the rear sump compartment of the Nuvo! Took me a while to catch him out of there! A few days later he jumped into the back section again! Smart fella?! I caught him out again, only to have him jump AGAIN so I gave in and just took off one of the spinning nuvo pump thingies, leaving a hole for hi to freely swim fro the front section of the tank to the sump (very cool!). He loved this for the past few weeks as he gets beaten up by the Dottyback, and this has relieved the issue, but 2 days ago I noticed he wasn’t coming to the front for feeding time, today I had a good look and it turns out he’s jumped out of the tank completely, fallen on the floor, then even worse fallen into the air conditioning grate under the tank (I can’t get his dried up dead corpse!).

Nuvo 16 Update

Morning on the reef!

The Nuvo 16 is cycled and I’m currently dealing with the uglies (algae issues) but it’s getting cleaner by the day and I’ve somehow managed to get 3 of the most aggressive little fish that I’ve always wanted to live together in the one tank! Now for more corals!
