    What blue :lol:

    Its not very blue on daylight, but I havent tried the blues all the way up yet.

    I dont mind though, my tank was very blue. I like the new look and the LED shimmer.

    It's the best upgrade I've done, having an ato is awsome.
    Now I pretty much just enjoy the tank.

    I paid R350 with a pump, but the pump wasn't working so I bought a Dysan for R200. Bought it 2nd hand, I've seen them for sale new for R2500 or so.

    They will eat any starfish, they don't discriminate! Considering getting one myself, luckily I'm at the coast and the rockpools are full of them.

    I have hundreds of stars. Moved a lot to my sump as well. Been planning this a while. I hope i got enough there to multiply quicker than the Shrimp can eat it.

    This nennie is growing so well, he was tiny and hardly any color when I got it. Touch wood he hasn't moved since I've got it.
