    Very nice! IMG_1816.JPG
    I may be a little bias since that is basically the same design I have in my tank

    I've been letting it grow out this year since I had a tang age out and a torch fail to thrive. I gave the system a break;-) my set up seems happy with Nemo and a coral beauty. There are two giant turbo two large nasaarius, 3 small. 4 blue legged over 4 years old (!?!) a striped brittle star the pictured hairy mushrooms that memo likes to host, too many Xenia, a elephant ear frag, a trumpet coral frag only two polyps, and my pride and joy a coral.

    Three large heads from two in under a year. I'm a full time student and part time employee so time is limited lately. But next week finals are over and I'm attempting this bad boy! 10 years in the hobby I think it's about time to try an NPS. Oh and a blue linkia star is in the works also. Have you had either? I'm curious as what to expect from both in terms of things to look for as far as health/happiness. IMG_2173.JPG

    Sigh. Here is what I ended up with. Somehow my "virtual tank" layout got shifted--cats probably--so it was larger than the tank! Had to redo in the tank. Here is what I have n ow. The large piece in the left corner is going to be replaced I think with a smaller hunk of pukani as I think i need more sand bed exposed. Might also take out the last smaller rock on the end, though I like the way the reef comes down to the sand level. My husband thinks if I keep the big piece, it should be turned right side up but I like the way it points to the main reef. So my delima is whether to remove it and use smaller, and or to take one small end piece off main reef to get more exposed sand.

    Here's my 125, there's a 1.5 inch diameter pvc maze in the big rock mass with 3 openings for my eel, 1 is the pot on the left.

    Love the barnacles. Wish I could find more. Very hard to find where I'm at.

    Thanks ! Barnacles are tough to find especially at LFS. I go mine thru various online vendors that sell them. I think barnacles are natural homes for some blennies one of my favorites. They certainly do like making the barnacles their home from when I witnessed them in my 29 gal bio cube
