Paul, what are you using for substarte? Crushed Coral or maybe sand with Garf Grunge?
The substrait is dolomite. It was put in there long before Garf was in business.

Where did you get that pic Steven,your tank looks way better than that? That camera isn't doing your justice. I have seen this tank ,and take it from me,it looks a lot better than that pic. Ted

Some close ups. It looks a bit crowded, but just about everyone is playing nice.

Thanks for the compliments. It was built from spare parts I had around the house (and rock, etc., from other displays).

Nagel- I've heard rumors, that I'm sure you've heard, too (not too hard to find). Maybe New Years?

Just running VHO's and minimalized maintenance. The coralline just explodes in there. Thanks for the compliments. The wife is very proud of it.
