So, wow it's been a year since my last update! Where do I begin? A lot has happened over the last year in more ways than one. If I can get myself organised you can expect to see numerous posts in the following days/weeks as I try to catch up.
Shortly after my last update I decided that the time had come to upgrade. The Reefer 170 was becoming overgrown with corals and honestly my Yellow wrasse was no longer content to live in such a small tank. After much lobbying (and no doubt whingeing, lol) I managed to convince my better half that I really, really needed a bigger tank. Finally permission was granted and the search for a new tank began. Various options were considered but in the end it came down to either a Red Sea Reefer 350 or a D-D Reef-pro 1200. At the time there were a number of worrying Red Sea cabinet issues coming to light and as a result this pushed me toward the D-D tank. I also found that I preferred the tank dimensions (increased front to back width), the weir position and increased height of the cabinet. Before common sense could prevail the order was placed.
The tank arrived just before Christmas last year and Jaws seemed more than content to keep it warm for me over the festive period. My plan was to take it slowly and cycle the new tank whilst the old tank was still running, then I could transfer stock over minimising stress for them and me.
