    I'm happy with the tank at the moment, had to move a couple of corals around that were stinging their neighbours.
    I think I have them separated enough to stop the fighting.

    Also found out that in a fight between a BTA and Palys the BTA wins by a mile. Stung the shit out of one side of the bunch.
    I had to move my green palys down with the pink palys, which actually looks good together.
    The morphs I cut away from the zoa rock are taking some convincing to stay put, even though I glue them they want to let go and float away. I might see where they land and maybe let them attach themselves naturally.

    Thanks, they are a really great pair of clowns. Especially the male with just a single spot on one side. I just wish they would turn a deeper maroon. @somethingfishy76 has a pair from the same batch from the doc and his are a deep maroon already.
    It really took them a long while to sort out who was going to be the female. For a while there I thought they were going to be a pair of gay males.

    I'm splashing out on a really nice camera setup in the next couple of weeks so I hope to be posting some decent pics for a change.

    Really nice tank. For a small tank there is a lot of action going on and everything looks healthy.

    This tank is stunning, an awesome example of a softies/LPS tank, so much movement and all arranged well. If there were a TOTQ comp ...

    Hey @daveH - everything looks so good - makes me wish I could do it on a slightly bigger scale.

    What do you feed your tank and how often?

    Thanks and me too! (slightly bigger scale)
    I feed a mixture of Ocean Nutrition Reef Mixture and Mysis. Thawed out and rinsed through a strainer.
    Also separately prawn which I have chopped up fine and frozen into sheets.
    Feed the tank twice a day with a mixture of both. Target feed all the corals around twice a week plus what they get in leftovers from the fish feeds.
