Thanks!

Here are a couple of whole-tank photos, top and bottom half.

The corals have a lot of growing to do yet, eventually the ones in the frag rack will be transplanted onto the rocks.

So far all the new fish are doing well and feeding, they are definitely establishing a pecking order though.

PS the chocolate dip chromis are named ‘Dheburi dhekula nilamehi’ in the Maldivian language Dhivehi.
My shrimp goby is ‘Dingaa funna’.

I am curious to know how you found the new fish if the supplier was in Germany, is there a site you can go on for suppliers? They do look amazing must be great to have them in the tank :D
180l small fish community

There's a firm called Whitecorals who always seem to have an excellent range of coral frags, and also get some interesting fish. I first found them when googling for some particular coral species, and have kept an eye on them ever since. I've placed two orders with them and been pleased both times - they are sent overnight from Germany. International shipping is pricey but the corals and fish themselves aren't too badly priced for what you get, and the stock all seems healthy. The coral frags are farmed, some in Germany and some in the tropics, so they are sustainable.

I have no connection other than as a satisfied customer:
