 The  tank  then  
 
 With  the  LFS  guy  ditching  midway  after  making  the  aquariums  at  my  place,  I  got  the  stand  painted,  plywood  base  cut  to  size  and  moved  the  aquariums  on  to  the  stand.  Here  it  is
 
 
 
   
 
 Cycling  the  tank  with  the  robust  Seargant  Majors
 
 
 
 
 Few  additions  down  the  line
 
 After  a  round  of  ich  which  decimated,  majority  of  my  fishes,  the  latest  additions  come  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Not  having  great  success  in  this  department
 
 
 
 
 btw  what  is  this  called?

 Fixed  your  links..  Smile  
 
 Now  regarding  your  setup  and  corals..
 
 1.  You  really  need  to  add  more  lighting.  otherwise  the  corals  will  soon  die.
 
 2.  Get  a  better  skimmer.
 
 3.  Research  before  you  buy  any  corals  or  fish.  The  acropora  you  have  is  slowly  dieing  off  due  to  bad  water  parameters,  i.e.  high  phosphates  or  due  to  lack  of  basic  trace  elements.
 
 4.  The  last  pic  is  of  a  turbinaria  peltata  -  Pagoda  Coral.
 
 Overall,  the  fish  look  nice  and  healthy.

 Your  blue  lights  need  to  be  replaced  by  actinics.  They  are  not  the  same

 your  lightning  is  bad,  u  need  more  blue.....   here  in  india  u  dont  get  anything  more  than  10000k,  people  often  make  mistake  purchasing  corals  without  the  knowledge  of  lighting.....  kindly  do  your  research  before  buying  corals,  they  are  vanishing  from  the  sea  so  save  and  share  them  by  fraging.....   i  did  2  year  research  before  geting  into  marine  tank....   now  iv  got  12000k  whte  and  9000k  ocean-blue  light  from  singapore....  use  6-7WPG  light  for  marine  if  u  purchase  lights  from  here  that  are  6500k,  if  u  using  3  white  then  use  3  blue....   u  get  true  actinic03  from  a  exotic  light  dealer,  here  in  mumbai  u  get  them  for  1500  bucks  (true  actinic03  are  purple)  they  are  the  best  for  corals........

 Thanks  GatorX  for  fixing  the  links  and  your  comments.  
 
 *  I  have  a  bigger  Weipro  2018  but  since  this  one  is  pulling  out  decent  enough  junk  (3/4  cup  in  a  week),  I  kept  up  with  it.
 
 *  On  the  reef  side,  I  can  see  something  is  not  going  right,  but  I  cannot  put  a  finger  on  what  it  is.  There  were  three  changes  during  that  time.  a.  Changing  from  Aquacraft  to  RedSea  b.  Re-arranging  the  rock  work  c.  Introducing  my  desi  chiller.  (I  will  get  the  pic  of  desi  chiller  soon   Chuckle   ).  
 I  am  not  sure  which  one  has  caused  the  problem  but  they  seem  unhealthy.  Only  Pagoda  is  looking  good.
 
 *  I  am  adding  three  trace  elements  -  iodine,  stromium  and  active  calcium  to  the  tank,  but  dont  see  much  difference.
 
 
 *  As  much  as  the  Costs  of  the  marine  side,  I  think  Planning  and  Patience  are  as  important  and  which  are  underrated.  Patience  I  have  learned  the  hard  way  after  having  the  Ich.  Thinking  about  how  I  would  do,  if  I  have  to  go  it  again,  I  would  change  quite  a  few  here,  esp  on  Sump,  Substrate  and  on  the  Hood  Design  front.  Other  thing  which  I  had  done  wrong  is  doing  piece  by  piece  approach,  instead  of  going  all  in,  due  to  cost  considerations.  
 
 *  Lighting  is  on  the  correction  mode.  I  will  add  a  bit  more  and  again  to  cut  running  costs,  these  will  have  to  be  LEDs.
 
 *  Most  of  the  lights  emitting  blue  color  are  at  the  higher  end  of  the  spectrum  and  in  my  guess  that  is  the  lighting  needed  by  the  marine  tank.  Once  I  add  LEDs,  I  will  increase  a  bit  more  blue  to  the  tank.
 
 
 *  Considering  that  I  jumped  into  this  hobby  with  hardly  a  month  of  maintaining  (and  killing)  two  gold  fish  in  a  bowl  and  maintaining  another  3  feet  of  my  bro  for  a  month,  I  think  I  am  doing  not  so  bad   Drinking

 PB's  are  prone  to  itch  and  they  look  good.
 
 Good  FOWLR,  reef  set  up  will  take  a  long  way  to  go.
 
 Keep  up  the  good  work  and  with  loads  of  patience  ,  you  should  be  able  to  achieve  a  good  reef  setup.

 djay,  nice  tank  to  me  but  you  need  to  read  and  know  about  marine  flora  and  fauna  more  if  you  want  to  keep  a  Good  FOWLR  or  reef  setup.
 Please  look  into  the  lighting  part  as  some  of  the  members  have  suggested.
 
 Keep  it  up.
 Raj
