    The 2 purple ones are easy off as on top shelf. The green one broke in transit so some now growing on the original rock and the frag growing on my tower :)

    The front left one has sprouted a very long growth for some reason. Isn't my sps keeping skills either :lol:

    I always had the same view Si but the clean back with the blue is so much brighter and shows the corals off much better. Going to keep it clean now :)

    Radion has been fine since day 1 and no problems whatsoever.

    If you want some frags I can snap 'em off on the day you want them then you can putty them straight to your rock if you wish :)

    That would be great Paul.
    do you want me to come to you or meet at Chris's.

    is your radion a gen 1, just waying up the option. Get an older radion or the pro. Or maybe wait for the new ai hydra 52

    Radion is a Gen 1 and the new ones are supposed to be even better. I only got the Radion over the AI on programmability and the fact it is sleeker when hung.

    I'm off atm so you can pop round some time if you are ready for some frags rather than risk them at the meet, plus you can see them first before I start snapping things you don't want to buy.

    I have to ask.........do you sleep ? Your post was at 0219 !!!!

    About a week ago I also got myself one of these guys...if you don't have one already I fully recommend a 6 line wrasse; such an interesting, pretty and active little fish, full of character....and I never knew that fish eyes moved around like that; its almost got facial expressions....or maybe I'm losing the plot here, rocking back and forth on my chair!? :wacko:

    Love wrasses but as they jump I've avoided them. Tried a goby and even that jumped out :(

    Currently using a pinhole camera fashioned from an old Kellogs Rice Crispy box for the photo's ;)
