    Mental mass spawning of star fishy type things in my tank over the last hour or so. Cleaned the back glass today, changed the Rowa & carbon plus did a 20% water change then this lot started coming out and spawning or pooing themselves stupid for the last hour or so. We counted at least 60 in groups of 5/6 out on the corals.

    Crazy first for me :)

    Used to happen in mine all the time before I got a pair of Hariquin shrimps. Very cool to watch.

    And for those who wanted it cleaned I decided to scrape the back glass today.

    Yes I think it's an improvement too :)

    Now to keep it clean ;)

    I have to agree that it looks better. Only the bottom back corner couldn't be done as there's some rock work which blocked the scraper :(

    Snapped several SPS off to whilst doing it so have some new frags :lol:

    Cheers fella and this morning it just looked so much better as I walked in and saw it :)

    [MENTION=15902]8birchy10[/MENTION]

    Snapped a few twigs when I was cleaning it fella so I now have 14 small frags on plugs if you want to buy some with a few bigger ones jammed into rock work.

    Are any of the frags acros Paul? Do they come with nymphamaniac starfish on them.

    have you worked out why your clams span round et

    The acro's are growing but I didn't want to frag any and thankfully didn't snap any. I do have a couple that have enough growth to frag though. Which 2 did you want to buy back ?

    Been thinking about what you offered and I'm going to decline, as much as I'd love them back I don't want you pulling things out of your tank for me.

    My 3 favs were the purple tip, tri colour, and toxic green so I'll wait for frags if that's OK with you.
    These 3 at the back
