    The ice fire is brown at the minute, urchin took it for 2 walks so it went on frag rack untill after the scape, I'm hoping its going to come back round now.....the frag rack is in low light wont keep hysterix pink lol.

    And yeah I must be doing something right to keep all them sps alive and growing haha :)
    Also that purple coral name escapes me lol has grown onto that frag plug by about 3-4mm :)

    Done some cleaning today got most of the corraline algae off from the sides of the tank water is slightly purple haha. But the filter floss in the wier will sort that out in no time! Also stuck powerheads I white vinegar to give them a clean.
