    Wow 2nd tank now 30 months old and doing really well. Corals really growing as are the fish.
    The Anemone split went well, so I now have 3 Heteractis magnifica Anemone living side by side. The Inferno bubble tip island is now 9 to 10 individuals and also doing fantastically well.
    really enjoying this SW experience of fish keeping, fantastic relaxation and fulfillment.
    latest video, in fact shot today. Hope you enjoy. Follow link on Show and Tell Thread to see other sister tank, joined at the sump :)

    Not one, but two of the best tanks I've seen. Amazing stuff.

    Absolutely stunning, that green monti at the back left is awesome, and the size of some of your sps colonies, they're huge. Your systems are certainly something to be proud of. :thumbup:

    Your tank is amazing - it's one of the reasons I aspired to go for an sps system.

    Glad to see your Moorish is so healthy - absoutely stunning.

    The 1st tank turned 5 years old this month, and with the bigger tank about to turn 3 years old, thought I would share a few pics I took this evening for those interested. Just put in new globes so lights high during running in phase. Excuse the quality
