    I've replaced the 2 koralias with a Vortech mp10.

    looking really good Tom. I am sure you will love the MP10 (and the second one you'll get eventually to play with the wireless). No pressure, but if we could use some of your shots to promote the site on social media, I think they would do us a lot of good. You've captured some amazing detail. Either way, thanks for sharing. (oh, and POST PICS OF THE PLANTED, lol).

    Honestly I have no idea what the names are of the few SPS I have. I picked up a few just to get a taste of SPS, 3 I picked up from AquaPros back in September 2013 when they had a 3 frag SPS pack deal for $20. Two of which have perished; 1 fell in the sand and the other nearly doubled in size before slowly bleaching out for some reason (2nd to last pic in my first post.) I picked up that yellow/orange stick from Jimmy @ CoralCompulsion, it's grown a bit, but mainly has encrusted like crazy to the rock I glued it to. The last piece I have was PIF'd from keishakornbread a while back, and is growing pretty quickly.

    I've definately taken more of a liking to LPS and softies, and will mainly stick with them going forward.

    Thanks! I do love this MP10, to be honest I think it will suffice on its own to keep LPS and Softies. I keep it at around 70/80% and if I turn it up to 100% it blows them around too much. I am keeping my eyes peeled for a good deal on a second one though, I do want to play with the wireless and create some more random flow in the tank.

    Feel free to use any shots you'd like, I'm honored!

    I don't have any pictures of the planted right now, it doesn't get nearly as much love as it used to. I'll snap some pictures tonight though and post them up!
