    Just a few pics from my 125. Mostly softies, Zoas, and a couple LPS. The one SPS I have started growing in this spot on its own. The mother colony died off (not sure why) but this one seems to be going strong.

    I'm kind of regretting putting GSP in there. I'll be clearing some of that out soon. Now I know why some call it a "weed"!

    Thanks for all the compliments. I know I have mostly "beginner" corals but no one I know has to know that! Haha!

    I have a 6 bulb T5 fixture (really 12 because it is a 6 ft long fixture).. I just upgraded my bulbs a week or two ago. I went with ATI bulbs. The tank is bluer than it used to be, but I like the look and the corals seem to like it better too.

    The tank is a little over a year old.

    Nice.


    Bulb replacement has got to hurt though on that fixture.

    Beautiful tank! Congrats!

    For the pics you might want to try turning off your actinic lighting and only use the white lights, as it seems to cut down on the overexposure.

    Works for me.

    I know what you mean about the GSP! Still a nice looking piece though.
