    Never had an issue with my diamond goby trying to get out. I do have the Red Sea top though. With that said I am thinking of rehoming him because he always messes with corals I put on the sand. Covers them up and such. I really like how well he turns the sand bed though. Only thing keeping him here for now.

    I added 2 dotty backs from Masterfisch a few weeks ago which are doing well. A purple one, a yellow blue one and a yellow wrasse.

    To be honest I haven’t been going to the LFS’s I’m fed up with them both and the current situation. I don’t queue very well and they don’t seem to have much special stock, especially corals. It’s just the same old stuff. I found I was buying any old fish because that’s all they had, rather than the special fish I actually want.

    I can order online, get exactly what I want delivered to my door without standing in a queue or wearing a stupid mask. And the quality of corals especially SPS is far superior at Masterfisch they sell all the stuff I’ve been after and at a very reasonable price. Mail order corals are another one I use regularly for coral frags, and again at a very fair price.

    So I’ve sort of slowed down with the fish purchases, and also with corals I need to be very selective with the colours because I don’t want the tank looking just green and pink, I want vivid blues, purples etc.

    Here’s another picture of a coral that looks nothing to the naked eye but up close a little more interesting. Its called a ‘little blueish coral’.....

    You wouldn’t believe how difficult it is to get a very detailed full tank shot, because of the length of the beast. This is middle left not the whole tank! Lol

    Here’s a close up of the centre island with a view of the S650 in the background. Let’s not forget it, it’s still a beautiful system

    Very good. What sort of timeframe? And are you going to attempt the impossible and grow some GSP?
