    Tear down about to start

    So ladies and gentlemen
    I have been real lazy and life also got in the way so I had a little Manjano problem which has now become a MAJOR manjano problem...LOL

    So first of all I want to thank the many reefers that have offered help with equipment, Rickerman, Mitchell, Cliff, etc.

    I am borrowing a 90 gallon tank from Cliff this weekend so I can start transferring corals, fish, etc into a holding tank whilst I remove the rock for bleaching.

    I will provide pictures and updates along the way....

    Sad day yesterday went and reviewed what was needed to start this teardown and noticed that my Blonde Nasi tang
    Was no were in sight....
    No body searched the area around the tank no signs of jumping she was almost 7" long and had amazing colours and nice streamers.
    So I am now toying with the idea of removing all my large tangs and starting with smaller ones.

    So the tear down is planned to happen "sometime soon" LOL

    things just keep getting in the way first it was work, then finishing the reno's for xmas, my soccer coaching commitments, then Christmas with visitors and family.
    With 10 days off work I would have thought I could have got it sorted and I can honestly say there was not a day that I was sat around doing nothing.....

    The 90 gallon holding tank is running and stable I built a make shift light support frame to cover the 90 plus the frag tank I also have to get the Bio cube running for the Mantis
    I will pick away at it over the next week now everything is in place

    Pictures soon

    Set up the holding tank only 3/4 full though and acquired so live rock to help with the bio load whilst bleaching mine, checked the Nitrates and they are high so waiting for the nitrates to drop before I add live stock
    reason tank is only 3/4 full is i needed to get a union for the return pump.
    i picked one up at the restore store for $3.00 mid week, and will be linking the sump and tank this weekend. provided work and other family duties do not get in the way.....LOL

    Here are a couple pictures getting the holding tank ready.
