    Hey guys,

    I will be using this forum to send some updates on my marine tank.

    I'll start with the start of my system and work down from there

    I know which pet store you visit just by looking at some of the coral you have :p
    Very nice choices, just double check the purple/blue monti for crabs. I see mine has a hairy crab that is busy eating away some of the polyps, going to need to sort it out one of the days...

    Have you tried frozen lance fish? Far more nutritious and contain the right oils etc
