    so as you know we had a few of these 450mm starfire cube nanos for sale.....
    they were so beautiful that i could not resist keeping one for myself.
    i decided to set it up in my office and began a few weeks back with putting it together the way i like things done.
    the mekaeel walked in the door a few days later and and i told him my plans... and he told me his....so from then it was like good old days, we were going to help each other get some awesome little nanos off the ground.....
    i must say its awesome doing things with a good old friend again....kinda got inspired again.....
    so anyway...the little tunze skimmer came in, the auto top up came in,the seachem onyx media came in, the led light came in and the purigen reactor came in.....and BAM!!! with the help of prodibio and and iphone 5....this is what ya get!

    :thumbup: Looking awesome Marco!

    That crab is glowing haha:coolgleamA: gota use some shades when looking at him.

    Tho I must say, iPhone camera's are good, but it doesn't do justice to the tank. You have to see it first hand!

    i would not even attempt to keep a fish if it was not eating or i could not supply its needs;)
    the 2 mandarins in the nano, eat cyclopreeze and we get a fresh piece of rock out the sea every second day for them ;)

    so mekaeel a i "raided" our good old friend and absolute real gentleman .......Preshan

    i have been fragging from my tanks since i started and everytime a client and friend asks me for a frag....i openly give.
    a while back when i had a issue with my main display tank i began to ask the people i had given frags of certail corals for frags....just to be brushed off with excuses like...."no not now...the montipora is looking really good now and i dont want to damage it now"......these are words out the mouths of people who had no problem asking me to demolish my colonies to give them pieces.......lol

    anyhow......one call to preshan to ask if i could buy some frags.......and his response......
    come with a bucket.....take whatever you like ........and i dont want a cent.
    he furtehr more reiterated that i had done the same in the past and he knows if he ever has a issue, he can just ask me and id glady give him frags back........
    thats what this game is about !!!!!!


    so after recieving some prestine stock from preshan aswell as some mushrooms and rics i purchased from niel phellows :thumbup:
    this is the result
