Unfortunately i dont have the sweetlips anymore... but for the short time i did have it, i think it behaved itself :)
the fishnet however i still have :) its done some surprisingly good catches from my tank, much better than a trap :p

Any advice you guys have? 1 thing im looking to get is calcium reactor, need something that will keep my alk and calc steady, any suggestions?

also about this cheato, what exactly does it do? read up on it. but just want to know how essential it is?
Nitrate and Phosphate make cheato grow, thus they remove it from your system as they grow.

Not essential but real handy

ahhh ok, never knew that. where do you get it from? wish i had known a year ago :p

and tobes, ive been reefing fwith this current tank for about a year. i did have a tank before that, but was run through a LFS, so i didnt do that much. this tank now, is what i put together myself. but yea, learned alot again and might be lookign to change to a new tank again soon :p

keeping marine fish etc is a bad hobby to have, very costly :/

But in the end well worth it, before you go and spend it on a car :p

ohh and i stay in westville, durban

Chaeto is definitely worthwhile pursuing. You are bound to find a reefer near you that needs to cut back their chaeto soon.
