    what are your broad livestock plans?

    Finally you made it boet. Really dig this build & see you have a few new frags in. Shout if you want some zoas I have a few frags available.

    Such an awesome build. Kind of a less is more theme with the open scaping. Love the piece of LR that breaches the surface.

    I enjoy putting disturbing amounts of electricity and water in close proximity and glueing small sea animals to rocks...

    Thanks. I'm looking to create a mixed reef. Starting with mostly LPS (I'm thinking I need a gold torch in place of my hammer, purely for colour reasons) and the odd Zoa (if I can find nice enough colours) and then introducing more and more SPS as the tank matures and I learn more.

    I do like clams but I need to first learn more about them before I will consider them. So perhaps one day. One would look pretty sexy.

    Clams are pretty easy. If you can keep a monti you can keep a clam.

    key is a stable tank with good light.

    Oh and I also added this guy, he's still pretty shy but I love his colour. I'll get a better picture when he's settled in.
