I put together a few photos from my first year in the hobby - hopefully picking ones that will be of mild interest to you all here!!

First one is simply some nice fish photos - the tiny eviota goby might be a new one to some people (top right)

Secondly, I’ve tried to get some fascinating inverts - in some ways I find them more interesting than the fish!! - clockwise starting in the top lest are Money Cowrie, my pale yellow bubble tip anemone a with a sexy anemone shrimp, a tiny dove snail, and finally a boxer/Pom Pom crab

Third, some of my macroalgae - again starting top left and going clockwise are; a rare Halymenia Maculata which has a purpley blue flourescence, Caulerpa peltata dwarf racemosa which is another rare one - kind of like a micro green grape that clambers over rockwork with small shoots (and love to go sexual constantly!!), Caulerpa Taxifolia (just cos I like it’s furn-yness and the way it send out two shoots from the point where you trim it which I just find interesting!), and Botryocladia or red grape which is another favourite and again I find it fascinating that in high light it goes lighter in colour (you can see the colour gradation in the photo).
Bossed freshwater planted tanks so making the move...

Here is the progress with my macroalgae pico tank over the year. Quite proud of this tank - more so than my reef tank for which I’m not sharing photos of at the moment - soon as I get happy with it I will do though.

Looks absolutely fantastic…. Would love macro algae in mine but Mr Kole Tang would have an expensive field day. Excellent pics!
