ooooohhhhh looks like you opening up another can of worms.... imo we are minutly resembling nature....we tank out every nasty creature that WE dont want in our tanks... so we take out the rule of survuval of the fittest. we do not replicate the ammount of current that hits a reef everyday...we try but we are short in that area...imo what we provide is a safe sanctuary that provides a living space that is adiquate....kinda like a nursing home ....Spanky said:Is it really a little slice of nature?
