Moved the tank into the front room. Did a large water change whilst moving it.
Air pump failed. Not sure how long it’s been off as it only runs at night. Thankfully I had another in the garage so it was an easy and free replacement.
Plodding along without issue. Will be getting some fish to go in eventually but for now it’ll happily support a few little corals and critters.
Tank is carrying along nicely. Eagerly awaiting its first fish. Got another 3 weeks of lockdown at least yet so it’s going to be a while! 🤦🏻♂️

Purchased a new power head off Facebook that arrived today so it replaced the noisy old one that I got with the tank. Much better flow and with decent control.
New power supply for the light arrived today and seems to be working just fine so will be continuing this experiment for a bit longer yet!!
Added 2 hermits, 2 trocus snails and 1 nassarius snail.
The light broke today. Don’t know if it’s the actual light or just a power supply but either way it won’t switch on. Don’t really want to be spending money on a new light unit so this may be the end of the road for this tank. 🤦🏻♂️

New heater added.

The heater that I thought was faulty actually exploded today! Luckily there is still no live stock so it’s not essential and the new heater I ordered should be here any day now too. Managed to get all the glass out so it would seem now harm done. First time I’ve had a glass hearted explode but it will be that at glass heater I use in my tanks.
