    About 1.5cm as a rough guide, so maybe like a quarter

    Camera and macro lens I think

    Well I have nothing of particular importance to report, all is well apart from a few of those pesky asterina starfish have been eating one of my long term SPS corals annoyingly! I wish the harlequin shrimp would pull his finger out.

    Today I’ve changed the rhowaphos and cleaned the skimmer cup, why you might ask.

    Well the weather here in the UK is going to be rubbish (rain so no golf!) for the next 7 days or so, so I thought mmmm, I haven’t been away for a while (dont laugh!) so I’m off to my home in spain for 7 days and my wife, the lucky tart, or Casper as I’ve been calling here from lack of sun, is coming with me!! Lol

    So sunny climates await so the tank is being prepared for another short break from me messing with everything!

    When I say ‘working’ I mean I will have my lap top with me (sometimes) and my phone on.

    Apart from that I will be sat on my bottom topping up my tan (like it needs it after 11 days in the Galapagos!lol) on the sunny beach and then gently entering a alcohol fuelled haze in the evenings! Infact that’s my life at home anyway! Lol

    I found it already particular odd, Shaun being at home that long after being back from Galapagos.
    @SPR1968, when away, our tanks only get better as we are not there to mess with them.

    Enjoy the out-of-office-work-vacation!

    I just remembered that yesterday my tank was officially 3 years old, and I guess now mature

    So, here are a few pictures, probably posted before showing the development of the tank over the years, and wow what a journey this has been.

    And just to recall this is pretty much my first fish tank of any kind

    The adventure so far........

    Clean wall when I realised I wasn’t supposed to leave it dirty! Lol
