    Nice looking setup, the clowns look great.

    Turbo snails sound pretty exciting too!

    Very nice indeed, I used to have a good tropical set up, but have always fancied going marine, when I'm rich and have my own place maybe.

    It's really cool.

    I'd love to get something like this for Dave.

    looks pretty good, used to have a plain old goldfish tank and did a bit with that, but nothing like this.

    Salt water, the shop Im getting the stuff from is really fantastic, helped me evey step of the way! (Interfish in wakefiled if anyone is interested, won a few awards for its marine fish)

    Good thing as well as im stuffed it everything dies...Rock alone was about £250, try explaining that to the mrs...

    Looks awesome, I just hope you bought them from somewhere which breeds the fish, not just takes them out of the wild.

    Yeah, thats the thing, Marine is where the money's at.  Def worth it though if you can afford it.
     
    What size tank is it by the way?

    Works out about 260 liters ATM, but im considering adding a sump so that will increase that by a bit

    At the moment, what look like the back of the tank is really a big filter compartment, with a UV unit, filter, skimmer etc. I would feel happier having a second one, both or backup and you can never have to cleaner water!

    Looks awesome mate. I'm trying to get my brother to have less stuff piled up in his BiOrb. It's only a 60l capacity so i know he wants places for the fish and shrimp to hide, but it's overly full;

    I think they're all fake. The greenery there in the middle is attached to the 'volcano' column that her got to cover up the fact that the bubble tube is a bit off being vertical.

    looks nice mate, but would it not look better with more fish, so there is more going on?  or is that the limit of the tank?

    It takes time to go through a cycle of some sort to get the tank prepared to take fish. There are crabs, snails, and there were two fire shrimp in there, but apparently the Clownfish that he wants to get are more sensitive so it'll be next weekend at the earliest to get any fish in.

    My brother will be doing a 25% water change later today, then if the levels are all ok next weekend he is gonna buy some fish.

    Unless of course you mean the OPs tank - in which case i agree it could do with a few more fish
