OK update time.. I have been fallow for nearly 6 weeks now after a whitespot and velvet outbreak after adding to many fish at once I think causing stress. So now have added a few corals and still enjoying watching it grow
I have a boxer shrmp
Peppermint shrimp
2 Sally light foot crabs
A few hermits
A conch
A few snails
3 Brittle stars
And a mixture of softies /lps/sps
