I don't have a reef anymore, just thought I'd share the pics /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
Hope you enjoyed /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Here is a link to a reef I had prior to this. Unfortunatley the heater packed in and I had a full wipeout except corals /sad.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":(" border="0" alt="sad.gif" />

Beautiful mate! /cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="B)" border="0" alt="cool.gif" /> Why did you stop keeping the marines?

Cake or death?

thanks for the replies /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
I was made redundant and another house move to an upper flat forced me to strip it down. It was costing a fortune feeding the gorgs and trying to keep the nitrates/phos down which in turn ended up with algae issuses. The 2 spot hogfish is in Manchester now /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />
To be honest, I'm more than happy just having trops right now /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I hate to say this but if you only had it for 1 month and everything died then something was drastically wrong, either filtration or stocking wise etc. Maybe you got bad advice in the beginning? If you did decide to try again ask us here and we'll guide you along the right path /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
