Thanks Clay, they look like a good idea. I've thought about micron nets but worried I would end up with more eggs than brine in the nets.

I am certainly spoilt with some amazing livestock sources over this side but it really is who you know in this hobby :)

Congrats :clap: :clap: :thumbsup: guys on the well deserved win
Your tank is one of my favourites for a reason.
You have given me a lot of inspiration for the new tank. Hope you don't get to upset if it ends up looking like your tanks big brother :crossfingers: I know I wont
Once again :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :-x

It's funny your tank journal was the first ever that I read comming to masa and it was the foundation that inspired me to take the leap into marine and even was fundamental in helping me create my style of tank.

Good for you guys look forward to see where you take the tank over the next year.

I have a suspicion that your superior ability to take great pics was a big +++ in TOTY votes...
