Has anyone NOT fallen for SPS ?

I do like SPS and I have seen stunning SPS tanks on the forums and in books (absolutely mindblowing tanks and a credit to there creators) but they always look a bit static to me.

I love the look of a softie tank with lots of "ocean motion", I think it adds more life to a tank.

Though it seems the softie dominated tank seems to be going the way of the Dinosaur.............there just seems to be such an upswell in SPS, there is a definate shift that way.

As I said earlier I can appreciate a SPS tank but I'll be sticking to my softies :)

Whats your thoughts mixed soft and hard corals or just one or the other ?

My goal is to recreate nature as accuately as possible...this means a little of everything. To me divesity is important, but I could see how some would be drawn to a "softy" tank or any other specific setup.

I have softies and lps. Gotta love the growth rates, color and weirdness of some of those corals - my favourite trick is to feed the bubble coral to freak visitors out... :funny:

SPS are nice but not worth the expense of extra lighting fixtures, and the power bill to me. I'll just keep enjoying other peoples sps tanks... :D

Great looking tank, Casey ;)
