Hiya manbeast, saw u commented on my scrubber thread and thought I would pop in and see your tank thread, looks nice by the way
Don't get yourself down about having a sump or not, I see alot of people say sumps this and sumps are that and you need a sump etc, I live in the uk and I have seen people be rewarded with tank of the month on a certain site with only DIY and hang on equipment with a pure SPS tank.
I feel that not having a sump is 1 less thing to go wrong (sloppy floor syndrome lol).
Anyway congrats with the tank and wish you all the best, any questions you have please ask

hey du82, guess I should update this threadore than once a month, sump has been doing well apparently the third time was the charm and all my tanks inhabitants are doing well minus one of the engineer gobies, got home tonight just in time to see his last death throws, from the looks of things he choked on something just a little to big dor his mouth, poor guy got the cyclonic funeral march. as for the softies, the green star polyps are doing exceedingly well, draping down off the original piece of rock they came on and starting to attach to rock below with a few polyps growing independently of the main body and reproducing on their own, the mushrooms are looking better than ever a few new additions include some yellow polyps, three bangaii cardinals and just tonight a yellow headed banded coral shrimp and a pulsing xenia frag, sitting in front of the tank while typing this and just heard " snap..snap........snap" makes me think of all the descriptions I've read of finding mantis shrimp, haven't seen any good evidence yet but I'm constantly staring into the tank so if there is one in here I should see it soon enough, now that I've gotten long winded I'll finish up with some pics

Ah well it looks very nice now, I like your scape too. Sometime down the road you may wish you never put pulsing Xenia in your tank as it grows very very quick, I throw away fist fulls every month or 2, I still like the stuff even tho it can completely take over tanks in no time, I still have some sprouting up everywhere even behind my rock work now lol.
I see you still have some green hair algae, turbo snails will get through that in no time.
Anyway looks very very nice
