Oh yeah! I think I'll be mainly working with interp, practical skills are not my forte! If I'm allowed I will try to post pics of what we're up to!

Ok so we have some temp tanks set up, 2 red sea max tanks, plus chillers.

Tank one is a kind of rock pool simulation and tank two is sandy bottom with Baby Red Gurnard Chelidonichthys kumu, Bobtails Sepioloidea pacifica and sand dollars Fellaster sp. Pretty cool and our bobtails have been mating (during the day too!)

Oh and the two hexagonal tanks you can see in the right hand corner of pic one are for our Seahorses and Pipefish, horrid tanks, sods to clean and the light fittings are rather close to the water :goofysca:
