    cool dude shot.. unfortunatley couldent start the tank up right away.. going to start from scratch... livestock in containers with LR and skimmer for circulation.. just need to get it up and running and matured again... going to get a bit more LR this time so hopefully the process goes a little quicker...

    Hi !

    thanks for yr msg just checked the tank and it is beautiful in comparisson to what we have in Panama. Also I am impressed with the shape of the tank.
    I do not SPS corals but some soft corals, with other fishes : blue tang, sailfin tang, fox face, flame angel, cardinal, hawk fish, tomato clown.

    Regards
    Fernando C.
