Hi Nikki! The coralline grows really fast - the turbelle in that pic has been in the tank around 3 months and it's covered in coralline. Thanks! :D

Hi jks! Good to see you!

Thanks, Josh, Katchupoy!
Most of the corals were mine from before I bought this tank, btw.
It had been running barebottom when I got it and I didn't want it to cycle, so kept it bb. Dumb luck on my part. I've never had it better.

An older pic;
I don't have the kind of lush acro growth yet that Mike has. I was coming from 2 smallish tanks (a 50g & a 30g).

Cam is a Nikon Coolpix 990 - great with macros, but it has problems with blues so I can't get any decent shots under actinics.
