    If you want opinions of the scaling, why not put full side and front shots so we can see gaps etc.
    Other than that it's looking like it's going well.

    i am but rather than buying rock itself im looking for the corals i like with a big lump stuck to it

    cheaper aswell plus more suprises :D

    i have some polyps growning around the toadstall rock and a crab in a hole in it but cant get him out lol

    he might be a badie but thay add the the fun of marine keeping :D

    Can be a good deal, especially if you find some from a system shutdown or downgrade.

    Hi Tommypope,, You give me some good advice about adding the LR to my river reef 94 (thanks by the way) so i thought i would have a look and [thumbup.gif] its lookin tip top, lovin all the shrooms i may have to look into them when i get set up lol.. Just wondered,, how much LR have you got in there? i got told 10kg is good for this tank but that looks just about rite to me

    Oh no. Sorry to hear about the clown. Was it because of the milliput the clown died? I was gonna use some on the weekend but dont think i will bother just in case....

    Looking good. Bet you're really pleased.
    Noticed your Reactor, does your leak too? Noticed the stuff around the top. My new one does that, got a replacement, same thing! Shame, as they're a very good purchase price. You'll probably end up chucking the white pads too, they clog so easily, just make sure your pump has filter wool or similar to keep the reactor clean.
