    Hey Tim.
    Haven't had a chance to get any photos yet (work, don't ya just love it). We added 3 GEs to the tank on Sunday. One of them disappeared into the rock work and we haven't seen it since and the other two have borrowed in and are feeding with no problems at all.
    I'm gonna take out the big rock scupture thingy i made last week as we're not happy with it and plant up seagrasses when they arrive on Friday. So hopefully i'll find the third GE then.
    If i remember (brain like a sieve) i'll get some board and sort the backing aswell.
    I'll update and get some photos then.
    Cheers
    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    What happen to the fourth one?

    Kind Regards,

    Tim

    Good to know. Thought something happened to the fourth one before you got it.

    Good news first.
    Finally got around to putting the backing in place and had a change around with the rock. Decided to remove the rock work that i made as we felt that it was wrong for this tank, as we want to keep it quite minimal (it won't go to waste though as i'll use it in our 3ft reef when i redo it).
    Also planted up the seagrasses that arrived on friday.* (Also planted some in both of the sumps in our reef tanks to triple the chance of getting good growth).



    Looks very rough at the moment, but hopefully will fill out and give height in the next couple of months.



    Bad news now.
    Unfortunately it looks as though we have lost one of the garden eels. When we put them into the tank it disappeared into the rockwork and we haven't seen it since. When i changed the rockwork to as it is now there was no sign of it.

    The other two though are doing really well and were back out within a couple of minutes of me finishing rearranging the tank.




    I'll hopefully get some better photos of them soon when they are a lot more settled and have more in the tank. At the moment they are still a little shy.
    Will update again soon.
    Cheers
    Steve
    * I've gotta say a big thankyou to Sarah at Blue Sea aquatics for the fantastic service given when i bought the seagrasses. The amount you see in the photos is less than half the amount that was sent. Communication was first class and advise was brilliant and freely given.
    Many thanks Sazmo.

    Lets hope that your other one will show up at some point and is just being a little illusive!

    Added 2 more GE's today and they settled straight in with no problems at all.
    But the best news is that the one we thought we had lost turned up next to a rock.
    Now that we have 5 hopefully they won't be as shy and i can get some decent photos to post soon.
    Cheers
    Steve.
