    So here we go after Lanzo telling me I must post some pics of my tank and the wife deciding to spoil me a little bit and I mean only a small tiny little bit with one condition is that I have to rescape the tank. So before we do the rescape on the next public holiday this month I thought I would take some pics and post them
    and use this thread for the before and after.

    Tank is really looking great, Pete! Kudo's man!

    There is only one thing that is a slight concern to me - and that is the state of that crocea clam.

    I would rather want to suggest that you place that clam high up. On the rock-work.That clam is not looking TOO well, mate.

    Do you have a CaRX or do you dose manually? If manually, what and how often do you dose?
