been almost a month, made some additions and changes to scaping


last Gathering with a few reefers was good and subsequent discussion with my buddies offline, I knew what type and quantity of azoo corals I will have after self thinking / reflection.


Here is the final scape. Amongst which there are 4 live rocks (2 big & 2 medium) secured with plastic fasters for permanent structure.


Although the aquarium is rather empty, but the formation of the LR is rigid now. I created 2 caves and a channel between the 2 caves. Both caves are unique; 1 is open inside and the other dark errie mysterious.


Here is the left side: (made of 1 blouder on left with 2 "secured" LR and 1 flat LR covering the top. The back LR is not connected but placed at the back for illusion of depth and another flat LR to shade the cave from lights. Total of 4 and 2 flat pieces)




Here is the right side:


Made of 2 very large LR tied to 2 fasters and 3rd LR to fill the back. A flat LR cover the top for shade

The front of this section, I place a small LR and place a large unique flat LR making it like roof which fish can swim under.




Looking deeper to the right under the ledge (roof) is dark errie mini cave




Using flash I shot a deeper pic, it is narrow route passage for small fish...like a skeleton of LR lol


home to blue devil damsel





the LR were scaped Dry on the floor.

LR were fasten with plastic faster prior to reintroduction to the aquarium.

After delighted with the dry scape, I moved piece by piece, section by section into the cloudy tank.


In fact i did it blindly as i could not see what i did, but i turned out great.


Now, if the LR will be cover with corraline algae and more corals r filled up, i believe it will be great




some updates, got myself a seafan ( Acalycigorgia sp - i think ) 2 weekends ago

been feeding it fine particles 3 times a day. Tested No3, remain the same as last week...phew

Initially it didnt open fully, but after a few days it has. Here is a picture of it.


Boy it was difficult take the small polyps, and got more room to improve.
