    Stunning tank! What are you using to run the tank? We have seen the light upgrade etc but what's happening in the sump etc? Care for some more info with regards to that?

    It will last don't get me wrong but it will only last until u need more space for more corals then the head starts to imagine bigger deeper wider tanks and before you know it the craving sets in once that happens your totally screwed

    Very nice. :) The growth pattern on those monti's is going to start looking really cool I think. Are you going to leave them to grow? They're going to start shading over you other corals soon. :(

    Thanks for the comment guys
    Viper I placed that Monti I tilted the rock far back to allow for growth in about a months time I'm going to bring the rock back so that should give me a few more months off growth before it starts shading I don't wana break any frags off that Monti as yet it's one off my favourite specimens . I have never seen anyone with a Monti with yellow polyps as yet .I'm yet to find another one
