Pierre's Aqua Reef 400

Hi all,

It's been a while since I posted anything here (mainly just live chat in Tapatalk) so I thought I would share my AR400 journey.

So far it has been relatively drama free aside from a Dino outbreak which seems to be at the tail end and a small problem with ich whch I cleared from the fish in a hospital tank and be good ever since.

I'll take some more photos tomorrow during the day when the lights have been on for a while.

Equipment:
JNS C02 Skimmer (amazing but of kit)
2x Hydra 26HD Lights
2x RW-8 wave makers
Jager heater
Aqua One 2800 (I think) return pump

Corals:
Lots
Hammers, Scollys, Michrooms, Stylo, Torch, Gonis, Duncans, few I have missed.

Fish:
Fire goby pair
Snowflake clown pair
Lawnmower Blenny
Royal Grammar
Juvenile vlamingi tang (will be moved on when it gets big).

Inverts:
Red Line cleaner shrimp
Various snails
Small magnifica
A naughty crab that's in my sump
CoCo worm

Tank update.

I have changed my scape around and added in some sand.
Waiting for the algae bloom to come but currently it looks amazing :-)

Amazing, how big are your clams? My mom had a large clam shell of that type, it was close to 1ft across. I'm wondering if I'd be able to add 1 successfully in my 40 gallon tank? I already have a scarlet lipped scallop, and some say they're hard to keep.

Should be ok! But they absorb a lot of trace elements apparently.

It's about the size of my fist.. maybe 10-15cm across.

Last night I added on a 3rd Hydra 26HD... amazing!
No more shadows and really brightened up the middle section.
