Didn't think I would like a bare bottom tank but I think it looks really good

Thanks:

Here's some snaps of the sps frags.  No sign of the royal gramma hopefully just hiding

Royal gramma is fine but still hiding in the rocks . I read this can be common they take a while to settle so hopefully it will start coming out soon

Have you lost any whole corals to the larger Angel's or is it just odd nips here and there ? I think from the reading I've done my main concern would probably be my acans

The emporer ruined my big hammer coral but as for sps since setting up the new tank it's stripped 2 frags I think as I,m out all day as I seen him nipping one of them . I only have frags of sps so don't take long to strip. Also seen him have ago at my toadstools

Thanks:
