    Hey fellas!! i didn't expect myself to be starting a thread in this section but here am i!
    Tank Size : 422 with durso overflow and 3x1.5x1.5ft sump
    Lighting: 4ft White blue LED light set
    Fishlist: Right now mainly angels mix of large and dwarfs.. maybe 1 or 2 tangs but i foresee it to be largely an angel tank.
    Current rock scape, all these rocks were from my old 3 footer and its definitely not enough! will be getting more soon..

    my sump, A deltec SC1455 skimmer, 12L of Siphorax and 5L of matrix Pond. I've also segregated a section from my return so i can train new fish to eat or act as a grow up tank for small fishes.

    Some updates!
    So i bought a regal angel and a baby (1.5")emperor angel a week ago and they have been doing great!
    The regal is eating very well on pellets but the baby emperor is only picking on the rocks for now.
    Kinda sucks that my relatively new LED's blue led suddenly spoil couple days ago so only the white leds are lighting up the tank.
    Also added some new LRs

    This weeks' new addition,
    a Sub-adult changing blue-face angel, it got chased by the regal and has been hiding for the past 2 days, but doing relatively well.

    Today chance upon a really nice looking flagfin angel! too beautiful to not purchase it..
    [​IMG]20171210_122707
    It started eating pellets hours later so thats good news!
    [​IMG]20171210_135217
    I also decided to make my own DIY fish food blend
    my supplements
    [​IMG]20171210_184629
    The ingredients
    [​IMG]20171210_201807
    Selcon
    Brightwell Angelixir
    Brightwell HUFA amino acids
    Seachem garlic guard
    Seachem Vitality
    10 cubes of mysis
    5 cubes of brine shrimp
    5 cubes of Rotifers
    TDO & NLS pellets
    Red and green ocean free nori sheets
    15 clams
    5 prawns
    so after blending, repack and refreeze.. made a little too much! probably will last me a long time
    [​IMG]20171210_204009
    Here's a video of the regal and flagfin eating clams and proceed to do some dance off

    Some updates:
    Current livestock
    Regal angel
    pair of clownfish
    Velentino puffer
    flagfin angel
    baby emperor angel
    coral beauty
    blue face angel
    majestic angel

    Bought tobikko as a nutritional snack for them and they love it!
    [​IMG]20171219_215525
    I soaked it to get rid of any additives or preservatives that could be inside and was pretty shocked to get a very orange dye leaking out... washed and soak couple times till it was clear.
    [​IMG]20171219_220209
    Next, soak with brightwell angelixir and vitality to further improve nutritional level and then store it in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
    [​IMG]20171219_221452
    Also upgraded my skimmer pump to a jebao DCS-2000, really small and powerful! im also 'upgrading' my main return from a ehiem 1262 to a Jebao DCS-12000, upgrade in flow but downgrade in brand i guess..
    [​IMG]20171220_194248
    A bacteria blend i have been using since my reefing days.. cheap, good but extremely smelly! no idea why it smells so bad but it works!
    [​IMG]20171217_135433
    Video update, just did a rescape to utilize the 2ft height, i was wondering why the fishes are always sticking to the bottom area around the rocks, then i found out that they never swam past the tallest rocks! so i did a quick rescape and true enough, they started to explore the top section of the tank as well..
    Here's them eating pellets mix of TDO, NLS and hikari algae wafer, pardon the cloudy water due to the rescape and pardon the ugly lighting.. my new light with proper blue/white led is arriving soon!
