    Why not? I dont like substrate... And looks much better when the BB is covered in coraline...

    Bare bottom looking great Jason. :)How did you construct your rock structures. Have they been epoxied together. What does your dsb consist of.
    Dig your signature. I have bath towels hand towels beach towels and reef towels...and my wife is the custodian.

    Will try and take a video of this fish, i tink this fish has the best peronality of all fish... He playes with my hand, begs for nori... As soon as i come close to the tank he comes out and turns that color in the pick, if some one els comes close to him he turns dark brown and loses the blue purple color...

    Amazing how fish are able to flash their emotions. I have seen a sailfish switch on like a light bulb as it swam past me. My tangs are like chameleons at feeding times. If i show them my beer bottle they stick their noses on the ceiling and ignore me. But show them a big yellow and blue tub of Omega One they become visually brighter and behave like excited barking dogs:willy_nilly::willy_nilly::bouncy-blue::bouncy-blue:
