I’ve not seen it this quiet here for a long time. Even if people aren’t posting much there’s normally way more than this logged in.

Thanks:

I've just been and bought some corals from a guy shutting his tank down, thinking of a good excuse for the missus when she finds out how much I've spent :s

New corals, sorry about the photos, they're in racks or just chilling in the back of the tank

He says 4 head torch, approx 7 head acan, small bounce, qty of scrambled egg zoas, some 'gold' zoas, free birds nest and a free 'softie?'

Thanks:

Had the week off so my nose has been glued to my tank.... probably meddling with it far too much. Found a great new LFS called Salty Revolution. Watched a documentary on reefs at night,  so pinched the night light from my wild tank (Newamore 30 which I use NSW to grow live food / macros) to have a play around in my main aquarium.

I'm waiting for nitrates to go down, so no inhabitants in tank till it drops.
In the meantime, I've just finished wiring up LED's for ATS. Tomorrow I'll post pics.

Fish inside and in the garden! I’d never leave home Hard graft pond digging but definitely worth it. Looking forward to some progress pics.

I use kaspersky internet security and I get no banners, so I don't see the adverts at all.
I'm surprised that you didn't get the feedback here, however I have noticed that sometimes one has to "push" people into giving some feedback-yes I know it shouldn't need to be done, but that's life as they say.

Thanks:

I am on an iPad . Its not in my nature to push . Once opon a time around the turn of the century there were a great many marine fishkeeping forums . It seems the hobby has become less popular. People try it find it requires patience time and money .

Thank you for your reply it is appreciated.

No problem, perhaps I should've said "encourage" instead of push.
Yes, it takes time, patience and money, but I've generally found after being on lots of forums including motorcycle ones, that here they're less judgemental and actually friendlier and more cooperative.
When I've been in urgent need of info, I've posted "anyone?" and the replies have promptly come in. The rest of the time I wait as I know here I don't have to sort the wheat from the chaff.
Judging by your post record, I see you're a veteran aquarist and I'm sure all here relish your input to the conversations as we know it'll be worth it.
Please don't go away..

Your very kind Jules, certainly been around a long time,but whether I know anything lol... Certainly there is one forum where they are so up their bottoms you cant see the soles of their feet  :damn: I have always tried to remember that once opon a time I was a novice . Hmmmm motorbike forums ,himself used to visit a few of them and I think he got himself banned lol. Had something to do with customising I think ,they didnt approve of messing about with a production model. Fortunately most messing has already been done to the Rewaco .

That's interesting Carol, my experience, especially on the Harley Davidson forum is that customising is de rigeur, in fact so much so, that if I've dared to mention that I like them the way the are, without any customisation, I'm the one regarded as some sort of pariah, definitely without knowledge.
 But what do I know?
