That must've been what happened when they were making the Brosnan films, they forgot to replace the MM and it ran out of miracles... :-D

No worries Rob!

That's a good size to play with, filling it with flubber?? Come to the dark side :roflmao:

I hope to have my FBFs running by then so I can join your low phosphate club :roflmao:

yeah right...you bought that FBF at about page 20 of your TJ...maybe next year :poke:

I love the movement in my tank, but now my fish are becoming firm favorites

Phos is currently 0.06, I am currently running carbon in my FBF, tank is looking very clear, I am considering buying another FBF to run phosguard & carbon at the same time

That would be a good idea Rob, I will be running Rowaphos / Ecophos in one and carbon in the other.

I will have the FBF's running before the meet, I promise you :roflmao:

Just thought I'd post a pic of my latest garage tank 3x1.5x1.5, its housing my old macro & all the glass shrimp I can catch in the lake.

The shrimps are not in the lake all the time, so I grab them while I can.

My fish just smash them...the clowns turn evil when the shrimps are in ...but the shrimp 'jedi master' is the mystary wrasse :bow:

Thanks for the kind words I'm a bit embarrased to be called an 'inspiration'....but I will take it anyway :roflmao: :roflmao:

Your tank is similar to mine....chocker block...whens your upgrade coming?

My only poblem is now I feel the tank layout is a bit scrappy with differnt types of corals all over the place...i may start tidying the aquaspace by groupng the corals more

Thanks for looking

My Upgrade is hopefully soon but I am not sure.

Thanks,

Thanks for looking Matt
Yellow Tang (fighter) has no problems swimming at all & is a real cool unique fish...upgrade should start seriously this month, as I get paid this week...but this new tank will be done slowly & properly
My leathers are growing fast..i love softys, & got 2 new frags from Travis at the MASAQ meet :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I check out most TJ on this forum especially when its slow at work, so I have been following your adventure, just not posting....nice work :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: takes alot of money doesent it. is that a mystery wrasse i see in there :poke: gimmie. :poke: . good things come from a well planned design :thumbsup: so what happened to fighters tail? was it eaten, or a deformity? :pirate: i think it looks cool . the leathers seem to grow amazingly fast and seem to love alot of flow. one of mine that i have had since the begining browned up and lost its nice green colour there a while back but in the last 3 months i have seem amazing colours comeing back to it. (similar to that of my small one) the small one glows its so fluro :pirate: . going to get any sps in this new system? are you getting it built from the same tank builder again? and what are you going to use for lighting.

goodluck
