about 21 months ago, i purchased a mandarin fish as my first fish for my 1ft cube. It was a mistake and i had to buy pods weekly as the tank was way too small to house/breed pods to feed it.


Today it had doubled in size and went through 3 tank changes, It remains the most hardy fish and one of my favourite!


Some new addition :

Was told this is a birds of paradise!


Its been a REALLY long time since i bought cultured SPS, the first cultured colony for my tank is this beautifully shaped bali green slimer!


Red milie, loving the PE


Interesting Acro which i have no ID, greenish base with pink/red tips.


Zoas corner, They are situated at the left side of the tank! Less flow and lesser light.


After i turn off all the pumps/wavemaker the Anthias go dancing around the SPS, a truely beautiful sight.. Its a pity when i turn back the pumps on, due to the high flow the anthias tend to avoid or seldom venture among the sps.


FTS Taking with just 2 x 24 Aquazonic T5 turned on! Its pretty cool how well-lite is the tank. I did do a little brightening but just 2 tubes of the aquazonic t5 is able to light up the whole tank.


Thats all for today, thanks for viewing!

I love it too! I wasn't confident to maintain the color as the tank was still new!

Whenever i see your updates and photos already make my day a happy one.
Keep continue sharing your nice setup and marine lifes for all bros/sis here to enjoy.
Thats pity! Indeed marine requires alot more care then freshwater. Say waterchange alone, i take more time to do 10% wc (20L) on my current tank as compared to 50% WC on my old 422 altum tank (200L). Have to wait for DI water to fill tub, add salt and run pump to mix salt, measure salinity using refractometer then i can use the water!

I will definitely continue to update !

Very nice video update, really enjoy seeing your nice corals and marine fish setup.
Don't see your big clam in the setup, where have you place it?
