Well, it does take up what would have been a small dining room but that's a sacrifice I can live with which doesn't affect anyone else.

I'm jealous too Blither ... I wish I had the space (not to mention the energy) for at least one more good sized tank. There's so much I'd like to do but lack of space stops me every time Rolling Eyes

Every system has constraints, so you always have to work within the constraints you've got. So don't be too jealous Very Happy

Well, I've just got one tank right now, which is where it all started. The tanks and racking have all gone to good homes. The Pinoy pair (Ratbag and Battleaxe) are still going strong, though Battleaxe still has to put up with Ratbags constant 'I'm the boss' behavior.

I don't think this pair will ever parent raise and as I've moved house I don't have the room for multiple tanks so I'm just enjoying what I've got. Right now the 'blues' are looking lovely under the dim moon lighting.
[Tried to take a picture, but as you all know, my camera ability and photography skills are shocking]

I've switched to small daily water changes (2L a day) which is far easier than carrying buckets around and I don't have to heat the new water either, because there's no significant temperature drop. With luck (and some amount of water testing) that should keep the nitrates down enough (there's only 2 fish in the tank).

The coral gravel has been keeping the ph up to about 6.5 (KH 2) so when I moved house and dumped the old water I used a small amount of bicarbonate of soda to harden the new water (my new supply is still very soft). Of course I adjusted the water before the fish went in and the fish were happy. I should be able to rely on the coral from now on and only used the BOS because I needed lots of new water quickly.

Sorry to hear that you're back to one tank, but glad to hear that the pinoys are doing well.

Yeah, it's all good but it's hard to gain more experience when nothing much is going on.
