I agree with the aquascaping! Very nice!
Do you have any specific colors you would like to add?

aside from looks, its important to know how much your willing to commit to a coral, from what i have read, some corals require special care such as feeding as they dont get much energy from light.

hey melosu58, how delicate is bubble coral? i have a small tank w/ two nano power heads and the intake from sump.

I`m not Scott but here is the pic of my bubble coral after I had it 2 yrs and a recent pic of it after 10+ yrs. They are very hardy corals. Doesnt take much maint. Dont have to feed. They get all they need from the lighting and water column.

8 yrs ago. (two yrs old)


Now (ten yrs old)


It experienced quite a change didnt it.

Thanks for all the input I appreciate it. Im not rushing into anything just wanted to pick at your brains a bit. I am thinking Acan, some kind of leather, A sun coral, a big fat pile of mushrooms, and all depending upon lighting a clam and some hard sps corals.

This is probably the 25th arrangement before I was happy then I eliminated some and stuffed them into my sump and I was even more happy. and I am still not happy LOL
