    That is amazing that you can pair them up so easily with an established one. And that they get along with the powder blue. I love to have fish in pairs, glad to see achilles tangs can also go in pairs, must be incredible to watch interaction between individuals of a mated pair.

    Hi Viper,
    I think only if I really had to. The water changes helps the stability of all the elements and replaces the nutrients that are possibly used up. To try measure everything will take some time. Maybe I am to scared to try - incase of a crash:m01:

    Some quick photos tonight tanks are nearly 7 and 5 years old, next month.
    They have been reshaped a few times as colonies get far to big

    I saw these tanks again last night and all I can say is amazing. Seeing so many massive SPS colonies in a system is extremely rare these days.
