    Rennie - Introduction from the city of Roses

    Hi everyone, as mentioned in the title i am from bloemies and into the marine hobby for a few years. I do have two set-ups - 1st is a 700 liter tank of which i started with(still running) and started with my 2nd tank (Aquaria 2 meter ) in July this year. As for my work- offshore commercial diving industry i am quite abit out of the country and its been really a team effort between me and my better half ,must admit she is really doing an awesome job and well into the marines aswell.(Which is fantastic)
    My oldest fish is a maroon clown - almost 6 years old and his name is Billy, he is like part of the furniture and between 12 to 14cm in length and definately the head master of the small tank.lol, other tank mates is an pair of occelaris clowns,mandarine 2.5 years old,puffer 3years,and a few others.
    New tank i have x4 purple tangs x 3 yellow tangs x1 orange shoulder x 1 half black mimic tang - pair of black occelaris clowns - pair of picasso cardinals at present.
    The first batch of photos is of smaller tank and thereafter of new setup from delivery upto a few days ago,its not the greatest photos as it was taken with an mobile phone but rather something than nothing.
    Nice meeting u all.1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg7.jpg8.jpg9.jpg

    Hi Rennie, bud, tanks look amazing, like those tube anemones in the first tank and your sun coral looks great. And what can I say but those tangs look incredible together in your second tank. Wow 4 purple and two yellow tangs. Do they all get along? I see that they did a good job on your algae. And great pic with them all together.

    Welcome to MSR!

    Those aquaria tanks really look awesome! What about starting separate threads of both the tanks to give us some more info on them?

    I hope you enjoy your stay with us!

    Hi Warren - cheers bud - i actually ordered x4 yellow and x 4 purple but x1 yellow died with transport (ammonia poisoning/ouch)-they all were introduce together first into the tank and straight thereafter i did put the lights off as-well, so with first light they all got there own crevice etc, also put a mirror in for the first week and after that one big happy family - great to see them all grazing.
