    It is really Beautiful, but the "Problem" (Maybe Jealousy) is that 99 % of tanks chosen for "Tank of the Month" on most of the Forums are normally "Sps" related tanks.
    This is one reason I am still going for "Softies" as I still think that any Coral Moving with Waterflow is still "Natural". Maybe I am Old Fashioned.

    And please do not think that I have anything against SPS- I have mentioned it before- it is really awesome and most probably very difficult to keep, but for me keeping "Softies" is really difficult, as it is not always easy to please a "Softie" regarding Waterflow etc. They tend to "Sulk" a lot if not happy

    You right Mekaeel, but it would be soooo nice for us "Softie keepers" to see some nice "Softie" tanks, instead of searching "All over" for some inspiration. If I have to take your tank as an inspiration, I'll have to fork out 10000's of Buck to get it to look like that, instead I will stick to what I have..... Same as Cars, I admire Mazda'z (Even though I dream about a Merc) because this is what I can afford, not even thinking of a Beemer.....:lol::whistling:

    i hear you Sean.you already have all the equiment it takes to keep SPS aswell as the knowledge.SPS isnt all that expensive,people are continously fragging and giving away frags,so theres no real need to cough out lots of $$$ for it.

    Hee hee. I don't even bother checking anymore; because i know you will beat me to it. Nice. Very nice. Matured beautifully. That Acro with the Monti plating around it as a perfect example.

    I love softies and have two tanks that bare witness; (LPS);however when those big leathers contract and begin there go slows; i get the willies. They look like toxic toadstools. Honestly, from one Sean to another.. i love them all. Except leathers

    No ...but they move my soul

    Any idea why they do this. I have a pincushion that has half extracted polyps and he has been like that for a week now, I know they like to shed now and then but this seems way longer than normal.

    My other pincushion is 100%, hair in the wind action

    Providing your tank is healthy, they will normally shed as sediment (irritation) collects on their surface. But the part that worries me is they go from 100% to 70% in under an hour. What are they excreting. In the haze of my self confessed faulty memory; did the ancient Aztecs or Incas or Aboriginals not coat spears in the juices of the leather.

    :biglaugh:

    They do sulk if the waterflow is not 100% over them. I use a small powerhead if one of them sulks for more than a day, if still not open after another day, I move the powerhead slightly off the leather. They normally start opening then, but yeah, came to realise it has all to do with waterflow. I have leathers that has never closed/sulked. For some reason I was lucky as to have them in the "Right" type of flow.... #$$%%%^ Weenies...:lol:
