Nice systems you got. How long have you had your angels and how big are they? What about your pair of Bluethroat Triggers? Thanks.
Hi there and thank you

ive had the blue throat trigger pair for around 6 years and many of the smaller angels probably similar in the S650

The emporer probably 3 years. Hes changing to adult colours now.

On your big tank the 4 radions pump out enough par for SPS? I have 4 G5 Radion Blues going on my 425g and was wondering if it would be enough?

Yes. Both tanks have SPS and they grow very well so you will be fine.

I will try and post some more pictures like i used to. Ive been busy with other things, nice english summer etc and some other projects at home so Ive been a bit ‘slack’ with the pictures !

Sounds good how big are the Triggers?

Have you kept Asfur Angels if so do they get really big?
There about 8 inches long now, and no to the Asfur Angels

Infact here you go an SPS Acropora Purple! Obviously I made that up because anyone who knows me will remember I just cant compute coral names! Lol

This is near the top in the big tank

I see do you expect them to grow any more? The Triggers. Which dwarf angels do you keep?
I don’t expect they will grow much more in their environment the Triggers

I have several dwarf angels, only in the S650, reagal, flame, some more Im just trying to remember them all! Lol

Take a look at the pictures on the first page and see if you can spot them
