    Ah come on boet! You have to go full mixed reef! Mostly softies and LPS with one or two SPS! None of these speciality tanks! ;-)

    Great looking setup btw.

    Softies and LPS, the tank will be full of movement with corals swaying in the water, green star polyps growing on the back glass, big pin cushion, hammer coral, frogspawn, torch, kenya tree etc. and then a couple of colourful fish, yellow tang, 2 occellaris clowns, regal tang and 5 or 6 Neopomacentrus azysron for activity in the tank. :)

    Predator. Nothing better then showing your clients a live demonstration with a 30cm Lionfish. Afterwords they will be putty in your hands... :whistling:
