    About 9 months ago my pride and joy was destroyed by a fire! Not sure how the fire started but I awoke one morning to smoke coming from my study area where my fish tank was located. My tank's wooden hood was on fire. Luckily I managed to put the fire out myself but not before most of the tank was destroyed. I have a large selection of tangs and corals and unfortunately more or less everything was lost. The only things which have survived are a few softies and my purple lobster. Anyway I set out to rebuild my dream and finally after some ups and downs my new tank is up and running! Hope you enjoy, Peter.

    I can't exactly see in the photo what it looks like. Some are and some not. I have two Yellow Ring cowries that are reef safe.
