    Evening Reefers,

    Sitting at home alone all day, so thought I would keep myself busy, trying to photograph my tanks and it's inhabitants and of course watching the rugby.

    Instead of just adding photo's to my build thread, thought I would do a new thread, just for photos :thumbup:

    very nice! the pics are just incredible !
    are you not worried about the clowns causing the goniopora to decline by hosting in it? do they allow it to extend fully(certainly looks fine in pics though)? i understand you are probably worried about a host anemone due to stream pumps in the main display, small heteractis crispa would then still maybe ok as they like to bury in sand between rocks and are not climbers like some others.

    how are your 2 dwarf angels with the lps no nipping?

    You seriously have the Tank I strive for...:thumbup:...when I imagine my Upgrade...I always have you'r Tank in mind...:blush:...I love Blennies and I see you have 3 living together in harmony...!!! I'm told if you have more than one, then they should be introduced together....how did you add them...? all together...? or just each one as you got them...? Damn...then you are a VERY lucky Tank owner...I would love to have a Black Sailfin, Tribal and my current Bi-colour Blennie all happy-go-lucky in the same Tank...:biggrin:

    Thanks Paul, using a canon 17mm to 40mm for the FTS and a Canon 100mm macro for all the fish & coral pics

    Means alot thanks Adrian & will do :)

    Thanks Helga, and yes a Snowflake Clown (just love him)

    Thanks for the kind words Achilles and yes I was horrified when my clowns started hosting me goniopora. But after about two months, the coral was just as well and my three clowns for all trying to host the same coral - so I bought some more and they now each have their own & all corals doing great. Have thought long and hard about an anemone, but still worried.

    The Flame did pic a little to start with (Coral beauty never has), but now both are model citizens :thumbup:

    Thanks so much - see comment above on the Angels

    Very kind of you to say Belinda and Blennies were introduced months apart with zero problems.

    Shot for that topdogg

    Checked with my wife and she's not as excited as I was ...... LOL, thanks man
