    nice justin:)

    looks like it has some time to really get going, and a few aptasia to hit now while they are small but you have some good options to work with there.

    hello

    hi everyone, Justin here. thanks for all the encouraging comments. i have les to thank for my success so far, i owe you buddy! id like to add that i built the entire setup ,tank,hood,stand,filters myself (not bad for an auto electrician i reckon)
    ive always had fish only systems and this is my first attempt at a reef tank. hopefully with some more advice from les and possibly you guys on this site it will turn out a success. thanks again
