    Hi there, I am new to MASA. I have been keeping marines for about 6 years. I currently have a three hundred litre LPS dominated tank. Will post pictures as soon as I figure out how to do so.

    I will try and take better pics with the wifes 550D. The cell pics really suck but gets the general idea of how the tank looks accross.

    Hi, just to let you know. That is not a chevron yang in the pictures, it's a tomini tang or also can be called a orange shoulder tang.

    Hopefully it was not sold to you as a chevron tang and you did big pay that price for it!
