    Little update on tank life... been buffering my alk and cal levels. Crazy how my consumption has gone mad. Seeing some real coral growth and nothing dying which is progress!

    Coral colour continue to change by the day as my nutrient levels change. I'm getting there though.

    My severe lack of fish all of a sudden means I've had to really ramp my feeding back. Hopefully that will assist in keeping waste low though.

    Did a the usual weekly swap deal with mad [MENTION=22376]Scott[/MENTION]. He got a big caliendrum colony and mdium stylo. I got a big green acro colony. I bought some candy canes off him for the salon and he threw in two hydrophorna colonies for free!

    Also did a swap deal with [MENTION=20322]warby[/MENTION]. Some zoas for a big chunk of setosa. Which I bloody LOVE!!! So nice one pal.

    Great skills by Scott as always.

Looks like i am going to lose my branching bubble c , long tentecle plate coral and frogspawn. Hammer has some die off so not sure and torch is not looking the best either will just have to wait and see

    Loved my green candy canes, but my pink ones grew like mad.

    I also like hydrophorna, but keep it at a distance Jamie

    Ha I can't work out why it's started doing that. Think it's the return flow rather than the vortecs. Going to try and work out which loc line pieces you need to put a Y piece on.

    Only got 5 fish now!!!! Need to look at additions. Could do with something that eats algae. A blenny perhaps.

    Can't beat the old faithful plating montis mate! I only have a small piece of the purple otherwise I'd have snapped you a bit off. I have loads of green and MILLIONS of hirusuta.

    Also, a rack full of hystrix and caliendrum that I literally cannot give away. Madness. Think I'll have to take it all for trade in. Better than chucking it in the bin.
