Thanks PodPimp - I spent a lot of time this go around making sure I maximized my aquascape so I could add more corals. That's where I see a lot of people going wrong. It's not how the rock initially looks in the tank, but how much surface area you have for corals and coral growth. You have to visualize what it will look like in the future.

^^^ That's a very good point. We worry so much about how our rockwork looks, and forget that, in the end, the goal is to pretty much cover all the rock with growing coral!

I use the red lens at night when the lights are off. You can then see all the inverts and creepy crawlers without then seeing you. The red lens does not bother them like a regular lens would and they don't even know a light is on them. It's a must have if you want to explore what really happens in your tank when the lights go out.

I purchased the flashlight at target. It was only 19.99 and uses LEDs. It has seperate on/off buttons for the regular light and the red light - definitely a great find and one of my favorite tools.

She unfortunately had to take her tank down due to the health of her husband's mother and the possibility of moving out of the state :( She is local to me and luckily I was able to get my hands on some of her prize pieces when she was taking it down.

It was a sad day to go over there and see her tank in various stages of being sold.
