    I would leave it a couple more weeks to build up the bacteria a bit more before adding a uv light....Tank is looking very nice now

    Yeah itís calmed down now and running a dream.
    How often should I be cleaning the hunk out of it?

    Also, algae on the back wall.... should I just leave it there or scrape it off?

    I seem to have a few dead spots too but my wavemakers are on full blast might have to reposition them or put in another lesser powered one just to upset the steady flow itís got going?

    I clean mine when it gets 1/4 full which is about every 3 to 4 days

    The algae on the back wall is down to you, some clean it some leave it ....I clean mine as it is blue and looks crap when algae starts to grow on it and with not having meany corals in there yet, last tank i left as the back was black and did not show that much due to all the corals i had in it.

    Try moving the pumps a bit to see if it helps ....if not then you will need to get another to fill the dead spots.

    I'm still waiting on the fish stores to get some new corals in as not any around at the moment Could do with adding some before i go back to work in the next few days.

    Hope all is working ok with the tank

    I tuck the Mrs out for a drive yesterday with her not getting out much these days and ended up at Maidenhead Aquatics at Preston

    They had a good selection of corals and fish in there and i ended up coming away with two very nice sps corals

    Keep your eye on that anemone for a while until it settles in and stops moving around and watch it with your other corals and the power heads

    Itís fully hooked itself into a crevasse and looking very happy. It did suck right in though and I panicked thinking it was on the move again..... it was just curled up.

    Am I to cut up a prawn to feed it once a week?

    What do you feed your regal tangs?

    regal tangs will eat any think flakes, frozen foods and algae strips

    you can feed the Bubble Tip Anemone, shrimp, mussel or krill..... a couple of time a week should be ok
