Hi Daz
Here it is the end of June and I just checked my Journal and seen your question. Sorry
Yes the tank is going strong and will be 4 years old in August.

Hi All
My tank is 4 1/2 years old and time for an update.
Lighting has gone from T5 to MH to Chinese LED and now has a Radion.
Skimming started with an Octopus classic changed to an Aqua Medic Turbo flotor 1000 and now use a Tunze 9410.
Wave makers started with the copies, went to 2 small tunze's and now use 1 Vortech MP10ES
Manual dosing has progressed to a Kamoer Triple Dosing Pump.

I no longer have a sand bed as the bottom is covered with morphs, Zoas, fungia and another clam (tiger squammy)

Gotta love those clams :).

Huge that the tank is four and a half years old and flourishing, awesome work mate :thumbsup: .

Could you point out some corals that have thrived in your tank for all or most of these four and a half years?

Cheers for the update :).

Jamie.

Originals, so 4 years old
Cynarinas x 4
Short tentacled fungia in the two front corners
Various morphs and zoas
Trachyphyllia

However since I started dosing about 5 months ago everything is better. Best single change I have done. I now frag various sps and they encrust well.

Clams are 3 years in the tank
Fish - Occi, yellow tang, royal gramma would be 4 yo. The others 3.
