    I never took a pic of my tank when I first started. This is a pic about a year after I started it. notice how little coralline I had.

    Thats not a bad amount. Tank looks good, so if thats a bad pic your tank must be awsome.

    I have to admit, I am so proud of my tank. It is my little piece of the ocean (heaven) in my house. It is pretty much awesome. I can sit in front of it for hours watching the angelfish wandering in and out of my corals. The only thing that I would like to add is another Sohal tang, but I don't know what I would remove or how it would get along with my powder blue. Oh, well, guess I can't have everything.
