    Hi and welcome. Also see you got a few soft corals. Tell us more about your tank. Size, dept. and your sump. Your lights.

    Hi Dorry

    Whell it your standard sun sun 250 liters . Took of the lighting and changed to metal hallide with ablue moon and a 15000 k coral sun hanging from the sealing.Have a dual sun sun powerhead and a vortex mp 40 for circulation. Normal sump with biobals and filter, running on a Ts1 .
    Then there i still the Buyo 550;).
    And another running in the background but still work in progress.

    Hey they bud ... Welcome to MASA ... Awesome setups you have there ... Just one concern though ... I noticed that you have multiple shrimps together ... Most are OK living in harmony BUT the coral banded usually ends up tearing the other species to bits ... They dont get their nick for nothing ... Boxing Shrimps .... Just keep a sharp eye on him

    Angels are angels with shrimp ... Wrasses and lionfish and eels on the other hand will slurp shrimps up snacks even though boxers usually can stand their ground pretty well against predators ... I would think he would be A O K with angels
