 Hi,
 
 Few  things  you  want  to  work  into.
 
 1)  Invest  in  a  better  skimmer.  This  model  of  viaaqua  is  not  the  best  in  the  industry.
 2)  The  Rocks  needs  brushing  and  you  need  a  water  change  urgently.
 3)  The  way  the  rocks  have  been  placed  you  will  have  to  lift  them  up  a  bit  from  the  bottom.
 4)  You  definitely  need  a  lot  more  flow.  May  be  placing  one  of  the  wave  makers  at  the  bottom  will  help  and  add  one  more  wave  maker.  Use  better  ones,  these  are  known  to  have  startup  issues  and  also  suck  up  Anemones  and  fishes  at  times.
 5)  I  see  you  have  space  below  the  tank,  place  some  bricks  to  come  above  the  vertial  wooden  bar  and  may  be  add  a  sump  there,  this  will  benefit  in  the  long  run  to  give  you  a  lot  more  stable  tank  and  more  water  volume.  You  can  drill  the  side  wall  or  the  back  wall  for  better  flow.
 
 Warm  Regards

 Hi!
       I  perfectly  agree  with  Nirav,  you  want  your  marine  setup  to  sustain  for  a  long  time,  plan  on  a  sump  before  you  add  live  stock.

 Hi  I  have  brushed  the  rock  before  2  months  when  I  added  it  .  I  have  also  exceeded  my  budget  and  can't  invest  more  in  a  skimmer  or  a  sump  and  I  also  want  to  know  why  I  have  to  do  a  water  change  urgently  ?

 Hi!
      
 When  i  started  with  my  marine  setup,  my  skimmer  skittled  out  and  had  to  invest  on  a  new  one.  Considering  it  to  be  the  heart  of  marine  setup,  kindly  read-up  before  you  invest  on  one.  Next  sump  as  to  be  the  priority  of  your  setup  for  a  long  and  healthy  marine  life  system.  Being  a  marine  enthusiast  myself,  agreed  it  is  a  expensive  proposition  right  from  water  changes  to  additives  you  have  to  add.  Just  beware  of  the  fact  that  it  is  not  a  one  time  investment.
