    :m106: Are those synthetic corals from Aquaria sa? They look good! How much was it for the big blue one?

    You have some awesome rock shapes there. Why not make a better aquascape? For a fOWLR a reefer really needs to be creative with aquascaping. ;)

    The wrasse actually handles his own in the tank. The mandarins is sort of an experiment that is working out so far.
