    Now that i have mastered the thing of uploading pics:thumbup:, i wanna show you my tank project thus far, i started it as a fowlr tank, but recently decided to convert to reef(yet again). The tank is relatively empty,and now my mission is to meet with ppl from MASA to buy,swop coral frag ect. I also had a sad loss, my Moorish idol,which was a pathological eater,died because of a stupid circulasion pump, an old Sp3800. He will be missed. Please comment on my tank, i will really appreciate inputs,advice and help,as i am willing to help other ppl as well with what i know, and with what i have.:1:
