Looking the goods!

Might be time to start shifting out some of those flubbery things for some more "real" coral :devil:

I am starting to see this word "flubbery" thrown around a bit these days!!

I have a soft spot for Morphs but have not had the tank in a position to successfully facilitate SPS corals. Being away from home alot with work my tank in its current form doesnt require alot of maintenance.

Now its a stable environment i will look at a soft transition. I will however always look to have different and rare morphs.

Watch this space!

Thanks for the comments.

Nothing wrong with lots of bright coloured morphs. It's possible to be into both extremes, I am =) Looking good mate.

Hey Ant,
Your tank is looking fantastic mate, well done. Have you done any water tests over the weekend to see how the new reactors are performing?

Hi Brian,

I have ran some tests and havent seen any major drops in Nitrates but i have been told that it can take upto a month to see some changes. it has only been 1 week so i will keep you posted.

I have however been able to take some pretty cool under water pics. Check it out...
