    Small Update

    Managed to get my hands on some LR and did a rushed scape (wanted to get it in asap). Not too happy with the scape, had one thing in mind but something else came of it but gonna work on getting more corals to mount to it...nuff talk, here's some pic's.

    Been having some cyano issues, added more flow and started doing 50L weekly WC as of yesterday, dosing bio-digest. The regal was the only one to show signs of WS after the move & the mandarin has what looks like a cyst on it's right cheek.

    The secret is to keep them well fed, in the clowns case, he gets mussel in the morning and evening + other frozen that the rest of tank mates get.;)

    Sure am! now to get it properly stocked!!:thumbup:

    Shot boss ;)
