So I've taken a double footed jump towards SPS keeping. 
Hoping my parameters are stable enough and the flow is well positioned.  :cool:

Wow. That is a jump!

Good luck with them, especially the Acros.

Transforms the look of the tank doesn't it. When did they go in?

They went in on Thursday.
The large brownish one just in pic far right went in a few months ago. I tried just one first :)
Yeah makes the tank look so different.
I've been slowly removing the odd bit of rock here and there also.
Been inspired by tanks like @Mayo and others.

Think I know the direction I want to head in now.
Dreaming up ideas for a bigger tank! 

Thanks:

It does look mint. The difference SPS make to a tank is stunning.

Looks awesome. Is the flow up there not too much for the candy canes?

Thanks mate.

The candy canes are just out of the line of fire of the wp-25.
I had them lower down before but they look much happier there so I'm guessing they enjoy the deadspot just below the power head.

Right, super paranoid about these acros ha ha.

Why would I see polyp extension on the purple and blue acros but not the yellow/green ones.
Some nutrient lacking or are they more sensitive to anything?
Sorry I dont have their names...
I've looked for polyp extension at night also...
Thanks in advance.
