    Hi guys

    I saw the most awesome thing this morning.

    around about 8am this morning the sun shines through my window and directly onto my little nano in my room.

    my clams decide that they want the sunlight so the close and opened up again and in doing so they managed to turn around directly in to the light

    these are pics of them

    Yip, nothing better than a bit of sunlight on a tank. I used to get sunlight in the one corner of my nano and the zoas looked crazy.

    yeah huge difference when they under the MH and natural sunlight. colors are brighter and everything opens wider
    plus its cheaper than electricity
