I'm wanting to add a couple of show piece LPS corals to my tank,  I'm thinking something ultra bright in colour but can't find what I'm looking for. Does anyone out there have any interesting ideas for me. Thanks alot for your help. I do like the Gold wall hammer but Perhaps some kind of Aussie coral would be better?

Whilst browsing the net I found some Scollymia which kind of fit in with what I'm looking for. Then by chance I found this place in Leicester only an hours drive away.

Seeing Clearwater reminded me,we went there some years ago. Lovely people ,beautiful shop,we bought 4t5 tubes,when we got home one had been usedand the other wascracked. . Too far to go back ,they might not have known ,a member of staff may have inadvertantly done it.


However it left a bad taste in my mouth.


One asks do they only publish good reviews lol ?

It doesn't look too bad but I shall see on Saturday. Maybe there isn't any bad reviews  :glad: I'll do a video I'll just tell them it's extra free publicity  ;)

What a good idea. You can only judge by going yourself . I look foreward to it.

Have you seen a yellow hammer?  *D

What about a nice fungia (you get loads of lovely colours and not bad prices)?
Bottom row and first two on the left in the middle row...
