    I'm not sure if Tone took a picture when they were in the tank......I'll ask him when I get home from work. I quite liked them and was planning on putting a coral in front of the legs to hide the rods, but Tone didn't like it at all at all !!

    Don't dis me for saying this but wouldn't it be better your skulls laid on the sand bed as this would I think be more realistic

    Plus 1 on [MENTION=23241]nodster[/MENTION]s idea they would look more natural on the sand. Or see if you can get them more among the rocks.

    At the moment we are skull-less - I had great fun with the project, but am more than happy to admit it didn't turn out like I had envisaged....we might sneak one in at a later date :thumbup1:

    aw, Nods....everything was going swimmingly (so to speak) and then we have had this bloom for a few days now........our cataphillia (spelling?) melted, our elephants ear is really poorly, the palm trees (clovers?) are not opening..........few dead snails........not so good as it goes :Worried: .... Tone has done a couple of water changes and I really must do the tests tomorrow to see the params.....

    all the fish are still alive............. I think I might have over fed a couple of weeks ago as I was worried about the cleaner fish, the scooter etc............ I fear it is my fault :w00t:

    These things happen , its a pain I know , dead snails = usually high nitrate reading , defy get some readings done for your levels also did you get the dead snails out as they will cause problems if left in , as for the corals it will be water quality problems as the usual culprit , trouble is we get attached to our corals so when they go downhill we get the pain too

    When was last time you tested?

    On previous tank I tested every so often but now in a routine of testing weekly and does not take long either :)
