    was just wondering as when I move rocks around my tank theres a huge amount of junk underneath them - and most of the bottom on yours appears to be covered

    LOL - I always wondered how they clean those large marine tanks!

    Difference is in a marine tank the amount of water flow within the tank stop crap from falling to the sand.

    Totally different story with freshwater setups that don't have anywhere near the water flow.

    I'm reasonable at ID'ing Tangs :Paranoid: Just checked the price of them on LiveFish, certainly not cheap, but at least with fish at that price you know they're going to get looked after ;)

    He had fully grown males at $150 each, and babies which are about 4cm long for $65, i took 3 of em.

    Just did some research, temps says 25c, mines sitss on at about 24.2 - 24.9c.

    Will that be a issue?

    It goes up from 24.2 to 25c+ ......

    Coz its located in the garage, just a tiny bit of sun warms it up, not a major issue atm tho.
