Have you heard any information regarding this ? Are you considering acquisition ?

I did talk to Koji.
Maybe I will be lucky.
Thanks.

Chingchai, If its not too much trouble can you tell me what you levels are for:

Calcium

What else are you dosing other than your calcium reactor?

Thanks very much.......

I will let him clean the tank and then I will take some pics for you.

Mr. Chingchai,

What else can I possibly say that hasn't already been said? I've been watching your reefs for a long while, and all I can muster to say is wow. You truly do our amazing oceans justice with your fantastic rendition.

I am currently planning a 300g reef, and in regards to the style of overflows you use. Are there any real cons of having the open drains? I would plan to have two 1.5 inch drains for my 300. How far below the surface would you recommend the drains be placed?

Thank you sir!

Lawrence. Sorry for late reply.
For feeding, I alternately feed them with many kind of fish food.
Dried shrimp, krill, frozen, pellet etc.
They are getting along quite well. No fighting at all.

Matt. Thank you for your kind words.
Open drains work fine for me.
I recommend 2 inch from the surface.

Thank you sir
I bit the bullet and try one Achilles .
It's settling very well but i see ick at night only.
I am trying to feed it more Caulerpa but I run out.

Also I forgot your saying about the gardener that is satisfy about his garden don't deserve that garden.

Right, questions asked, back to reading the other pages

The pink one disappeared for a while. But I already got the new one.

Managed to get through the other couple of hundred pages and saw some pics of your red carpet , do you ever see any purple carpets in Bangkok? Looking for a purple one to add to my collection.

Seriously my favourite tank! Your attention to detail...the whole room is just perfect, would love to come and visit if I ever come to Thailand.

Shame about the Achilles....seeing a shoal of 6-7 in your tank would have been amazing. Looking to get one for my tank...favourite fish but after reading your thread, i might just need to set up a qt ....been lucky so far.

Thanks
