    I actually meant lots of large corals compared with the recent trend of open space within the aquarium

    Thanks Dan,
    I am always afraid somebody will ask what SPS I have as I can't remember most of them. However, some are a tri-colour Hystrix, a Guttartus. Strawberry shortcake, blue tipped acro. Steripora.Stylopora Milliporas, Montiporas red and forest fire, Setosa (forgive the spellings) and lots of unknown (to me) names. :rolleyes:

    That's the most important thing about successful reef tank I think,grow frags from small and don't rash the setup as Rome wasn't build in a day

    Cheers guys, Got a little problem with RBTA splitting and stinging SPS so looks like I will have to break down the far righthand barnacle area to remove a couple. Am not looking forward to that. :crybaby2:
