Hi all!
Its been awhile since Ive been back here, moving house, work and a few other projects so I thought I would post an update on the tank.
We moved into a new place 2 months ago and I am happy to say the tank looks SO much better in the new house. The Jungle Dawn LEDs which went missing with the courier have FINALLY shown up after 3 1/2 months missing, arrrgghh!! Which has meant I have been able to fit the hood and finish the aesthetics finally. I am really happy with the final product and it adds so much to our loungeroom without dominating it.
Ive added a few more broms and I am about to have my first orchid flower open which I am really excited about, Im pretty sure it is Bulbo pardalotum but the next few days will confirm this.
Ive also dumped the homemade fogger and replaced it with a Zoo Med Repti Fogger which is MUCH better and fills the tank with fog which looks great. I will try and post some more pics and video soon

It looks breathtaking. You have a wonderful eye for aesthetics. I probably should not look too close, as my 240g reef tank needs to be replaced soon, and I can already see plenty of orchids in this tank lol.

Do it!!
you wont regret it I promise.
No water changes, test kits, food runs, brine shrimp batches, mystery deaths (ok, there are still a few of those)
All the mistakes happen really slowly as compared to fish keeping so you have time to try a few different things to fix it, once you have it dialled in, you can just let it do its thing!

I miss my fish a bit but love my Jungle just a little bit more

I will just end up with two 240g tanks, lol. My current tank is coming up on 10 years, and it it mostly sps. I do not want to get rid of my piece of the ocean.. the way it is going, my corals will all be on IUCN red list soon some are already, i have been doing it for 20 years

Wow, beautiful!
in that case I recommend getting rid of a few things like couches and dining tables and getting a few more tanks! hahaha!
Seriously though, a piece of the ocean and a piece of dense forest on either side of the room would make for an amazing display.

UPDATE: so the bulbo is not pardalotum but purpuraceum (this is what was on the tag) which I think is supose to be purpurascens.
