    Hi Vision. Nice to see you here, and thank you for joining our side of the world!
    To all members- Vision is the guy who took all those mouthwatering pics I posted under the Philipines thread. He is also the boss on the Pinyoreefers Forum...
    Now we can all beg him to show us more pics of his beautiful country...

    @ Crispin,

    Hi Sir, I been keeping my SW tank for four years now. I had it once as a mixed tank with mostly SPS.


    Thank you for your kind words.

    :)

    i am taking norwegian classes at the moment and we have two phillapines in the class. After those pics I started asking them all sorts of questions about sps reefs, poor fellas think I am truley mad, i dont think every phillapine is into reefs :(

    but please do share more pics with us vision I'd love to see. And its so nice getting in focus shots, all the ones sean posted recently are blurry and faded......

    Vision i hear YOU are the boss.....it should be me calling YOU SIR :)

    was there any specific reason that you changed from a mixed reef to sps dominated over time, or was it simply that you enjoy the challange and shapes of the sps corrals ?



    and crispin tries that multi quote thing again and gets it wrong! :p

    Hey Sean, it's been my pleasure to sign up here. Wonderful and very accommodating members.

    Not all the pics are from me :thumbup: but from friends around the Philippines.

    Not actually a boss, as the Site has three admins :) to administer.


    Again Sean, thank you for the invite.

    :thumbup:
