Thanks, I keep feeling like it needs something, some coral. But I guess that is probably just the addiction calling

Looks good. Approximately how much did you start feeding( pappone) and where are you at now?

I actually started with a larger amount than I use now. I use ziploc bags that are filled so they are thin sheet about 1/4 inch thick I use a 1/4 by 1/4 inch piece, sometimes more sometimes a little less. I do this 3 days on 2 days off.

That is full to the brim! Gonna need an upgrade to a larger tank soon. Once all those sticks start growing this is gonna look just incredible. Well done!

Thank you and I really don't plan on upgrading for about a year or so, I will however start fragging some of these up in a few months. I want the look of the mature Italian tanks.

Gottcha! I too love the look of those tanks, a forest of nice SPS coral. Keep posting updates here so we can see how your tank is developing.

A few new acros a few less LPS, they are hard to keep with one of my buddies around. Most SPS are in there final places and probably not a lot more additions to make other than the occasional frag.

I wish I could keep my hands out however the nudi's, which are still in the tank, seem to make that improbable for a while. I'm thinking about maybe using drywall dust as food, LOL. Thanks Steevo.

I appreciate the compliment, I should have mentioned I took the wavemaker off and added a K3. So I have 2 K3s and a Rio 1400 in the sump, the flow is much easier to control.

It is faster due to facebook 50kb limit on photos, I'll gladly wait for the high quality photos of a photo site load before I'll look at facebook crap.
