progresses on... coraline fading due to lighting upgrade
and I had to move to hammer to the sump/fuge until I can rearrange rockwork (receeding in areas too close to rock/glass)

I made some significant changes to the 25 last week and I promised a pic, so here it is! (sorry it took so long) My hammer is still angry for getting evicted to the sump for a while, but I expect iot to strat opening up again soon.

Im pretty happy with it.. what do you all think? Enjoy!!!

btw james, I havent really done anything to "help" the coraline... I was just very lucky to get some GREAT rock and the tank has been doing really well with little help from me. I havent needed to dose Ca/Alk but maybe once or twice a month. I actually lost alot of the coraline when I upgraded my lighting (which is common) but some is starting to come back now.
