First thread entry below
So far I've found this forum to be incredibly inspiring. After several months of research and making purchases here and there, I finally set up my tank. This is my first stab at a SW. It's now day two. The rock I got from the LFS is amazing! Tons of purple coralline and lots of hitchhikers. I found a couple of hair worms and saw couple amphipods. Also, one of the pieces of LR has some kind of macro algae.
Here's the pics:
HH GSP Sorry, some are out of focus.
I'm really having fun with this. Thanks to all that inspired me and thanks in advance for the advice.
