finally a update :tongue:
I have been having issues with some SPS's of lately so I think I may hold off on buying any more till new tank.
My new tank is again on hold :( due to the wife spending all the cash on bifold's and deck
Image

My cheapo All-in-one MH light that is only 10 months old stopped working last week :wall: , so lucky that one of the MASS members(MG5 :bow: ) gave me a 250w MH.
This teached me not to buy cheap stuff online :nod: . ATI lighting here I come but not for 3 months.

I sold my 2 large clams and updated to these 3 beautys
Say hi to my new triplets :-x :-x

some pics of my zoo garden , stopped counting after 46 types, :nut: bit hard getting all in one shot :roflmao:

PS : sorry for the bad pics :tongue: , I'm blaming it on the lighting :pirate:

WOW you got some fully sic stock in there clayton :clap:

the dallas has had some good growth,but its very elongated compared to my dallas,strange as most ive seen is like that.

i put mine being so stocky and branchy due to the flow in my tank.

looks like the wifey is getting some payback on all the spoiling you have been splashing on yourself :roflmao:

exiting times ahead with the new tank,imagine all the placement opportunities you will have with all that stock :o
make sure you really put some thought in to it and dont rush it if at all possible,as in transferring it all in one go.

i would set the rock work up first and leave what you can in the old setup and salvage what rock you can to go towards the new one
and leave the stock till last,then slowly add it.

good work :nod:
