    Hey crew

    im a bit lost as to what i should do with my 600*600*450 cube.
    Should i make it a FOWLR system or transfer all my LPS from my big tank into the little cube and leave the big tank SPS dominated?
    any input will be appreciated
    thanks guys

    yip, the cube is a bit to small.
    go for a lps system in th 600mm cube and fully sps on the 1m cube.
    this will look great

    awesome dude, perhaps you could also get them to breed eventually!

    but what species would you go for?

    sea horses cant be kept with lps or any coral as the will lnk onto it with there tail and get stung. thats what i have read.

    an lps tank will be good. maybe a local tank-all the local zoo's and the local fish we have?
