    Yup
    I change when i get bored (almost never) or when something is going wrong. Which has been about every 6 months or so.
    Now my tank will def not win anything more than "Ugly" but fish and corals are healthy, and i dont mind a bit of algae.

    Thanks for stopping by @StirCrayzy

    I wonder if anyone has carried out a scientific experiment with valid findings on the subject as any threads I’ve read always turn into just an argument as of course there are 2 views and I can see both sides. I think certainly for new tanks it’s beneficial as the systems develop but mature systems, I think it’s a different issue.

    I am of the same opinion. Good for newer tanks, but once a tank is established it is not so necessary.

    This is one of my first marine fish. He’s grown a little!

    Thanks Pancho

    He was about 2 inches when I got him, and he must be 6 inches now and growing!

    Mine was also small when I got him. He used to think he was one of the Blue Chromis and swam around with them. Now he's the boss of the tank.

    Hahaha, mine did the sane thing! He thought he was a Chromis and was very shy, very funny to watch.

    So here are a few tank shots, one of which I’ve posted before but I like it so...! Lol

    Everything is doing well and I don’t really have much to do other than looking at the tank and minor maintenance.

    I’ve started doing water changes every 8 weeks now, all parameters are in check.

    The 2 Lobophyllia corals in the middle, pink and green, seem to be struggling and receding these days. Any ideas ?

    I wonder if it was started by the low magnesium levels I had a while ago do to a faulty Red Sea test kit, as certainly the others corals have greatly improved. It really made me realise the effect of magnesium in a reef tank.

    Anyway here you go......
