    Colorful sticks are the way to go!!

    It came to my recent attention that i had been posting updated tank pics in the wrong area. So me, being the humanitarian i am, I decided to take up more space, and start another thread hahah :)

    Sorry for the bad quality pics, my camera takes photos that are too blue, so i changed the setting, however the quality isn't so great

    thanks guys, the growth rate on these corals are insane, its been about a week and the acros tips have already grown about 1cm longer, +- the same growth on all the other sps. Also noticed my small hammer frag has grown another 4 heads.

    Will upload pics in a bout a weeks time, awaiting a nennie and some fish.

    So I have not had fish in my display tank for about 3 months, due to all the previous inhabitants dieng of white spot... So now i mustered up the courage to have a go at keeping some fishies. Unfortunately i could not quarantine them as I turned my QT into a frag tank because i was adamant i would not get fish again... but we all know how that story goes :)

    So here is some photos of the fish I bought

    Looking good.

    What lighting do you run and for how many hours per day?

    6xT5's and 1x metal halide 150W. The T5's are a mix between gieseman aquablue plus and actinics, as well as a ATI purple plus.

    @Selwyn123. Is that the Pseudanthias lori (Lori's/Tiger Queen Anthias). Beautiful Anthias. How many do you have?

    yep, only have 1 as the LFS didn't get more, just the single fish came in. I always thought it was a red saddled anthias, they look so similar, thanks @Helga for the ID :)
