    My Tank 6 motnhs on .....

    just thought id put up a photo of my tank 6 months on from joining the forum and doing my cycle ... over time some people have seen my tank at early stages and thought it wasnt fair that you dont get to see it as i do now ..

    loving it more every day ; ) ... as my first little attempt at it .. cant wait till ive done this one for a few years and make a larger version and get alot more creative ; )

    BTW FYI this is my 34G .. 120L "mini tank" i recon its just a little too big to be called nano ; )

    I think it looks just fine. Fortunately, most of the corals you have are things easily moved if it becomes necessary.

    Great looking tank I agree with Pearson it looks perfectly fine the way it is.

    hey bud, good to see you back.

    looks a sh^t load better than last time we spoke anyways.

    I responded to your pico war machine Q.
    Ironicly I threw all that stuff out last weekend actually. My storage room used to be filled within 2 inches of opening the door. Now i can reach the window. Ive thrown out sh^t loads of previous toys, prjects & endevours. Lucky ive got enough bins for 2 houses..lol

    If it looks this good now, imagine what it will look like in three years! Woot!

    I like the "reef slope" look. Nice.

    Have you tried Rob's trick for getting the Clowns to host in the Anemone? Get them to start feeding from a dropper and then squirt the dropper into the Anemone for a while... Probably worth a try.

    Very nice improvement, John. I like the canyon effect of the LR. Canyons are very common on the reef. Nice touch.
