    cold water anemones are very nice and colourful. Where and how do you get specimens for cold water system if you live in Pretoria?

    I get them from the Blouberg/Melkbos area. I use a 12v air pump to keep the water full of oxygen. These anemones are extremely hardy! I've had them for over a year now and they thrive.

    Love "local" systems, definitely my next project.

    What type of algae are you using in the refugium?

    Something different you got there very interesting and colorful. Have you thought about adding any fish?

    Thanks for all the input guys. I have 9 little fish and will try and take a pic later. Think they are baby harders. I would love to add more fish but coldwater livestock is extremely rare. Hopefully I can get a catalina goby this year
