    If I can get it half as nice as Nev's , Killi's or Dave's (Heller) tank then I would be very happy.

    Don't get me wrong, if I look back to January and compare to now, the growth and changes have been immense. But there are too many nicer looking tanks out there, and it's something to aim for. But as usual, it takes time.

    Hi Pete

    I do mate, but as I said to Nev last night, I want to get rid of my softies and then add some LR and then leave that to settle, then add the SPS

    I would so much love some of your corals, you are a credit to the hobby mate.

    I made a start today on the changing over from softies to SPS / LPS as my primary corals.

    I took my finger coral out which must only have been approx 6 inches big at the most, when I first got my tank last year.

    So far, about 12kgs of LR and reef bones have been added, and tbh the tank looks no different whilst looking at the photo's.

    However, there are now loads of placement spaces for SPS frags etc and I will probably add another 10 KGs once the Toadstool has come out.

    After changing and 12KGs added:

    No it's some kind of twig. As for the green plating, not a problem.

    /wishes he was better at remembering names, but it looks like a tree, or at least it did do.
