    What size are your pics, Koeks? I am talking about photo size (in pixels), as well as file size?

    Koeks - use something like either "irfanview" or "MS Office Picture Manager" to resize the pics (not your originals - copies of the originals), to post here!

    there we go guys any comments welcome a big thank you to tridan (Dave) for all the help he has given in setting this tank up. Also for keeping my live rock fish anem etc while i set the tank up. Do have a slight gha problem and a little bit of cyno buth otherwise all seems to be running ok, my torch is struggling a little but will have to see how that goes.

    Nice lloking there. I'm just worried about anemones ans SPS's although you have managed to keep all types of corals healthy. Well done

    nice livestock !!

    Do you dose all your additives through your Auto top up?

    there was a thread a little while back which suggests that the low ph of a kalk rich solution would adversely affect other additives???? what is your opinion on this?
