    So 12 months ago I had just got wet and within hours there was an asternia on the glass -

    I know you can see the corals have grown but things like the clam doubling in size have been a revelation for such a lazy reefer like myself. Yes I've had a few disappointments along the way but on the whole I'm extremely happy with it :)

    I've never cleaned the back with either tank, even though the wife has suggested it, as there always seems to be life on it. Wonder if it's worth starting a poll :lol:
