    Ed - a quick question. What lighting do you have and how much water-flow in your display tank? Also - what skimmer do you run?

    One of his skimmers is an AM 5000 the big boy :p. You should se the tank IRL. Pictures are good but IRL still beat them. I have the privilege of seeing that tank once a month.

    :))))

    Trust me, I don't know what Ed is doing to them, but I cannot get the little piece I got from him to pump like that. It's growing right... but not pumping like that.
