I re-scaped for a little lower of a profile, I also removed some of the Marco rock and added 55 pounds of Walt Smith live rock. At this point I also removed all of my fish to try and treat a persistent problem with ich. The tank was fallow from late July or August, 2012 until late December. The saga of what happened to those fish and what I learned is a novel for another day, but sadly, 10 days before my fish were to return to the display we had a party and the door to the room they were in got closed. The room was small and had lots of electronic equipment in it so by the next morning the room and water were well over 30 degrees C and all my fish were dead.

The coral collection grew. They're all just babies in these pics, colours are also a little underwhelming.

For various reasons I won't get in to here, the algae problem got VERY serious
