Its a gold maxima... I got it "used" and thats what i was told, and it fits the bill. I have had it for 3 months, and it has about 2-3 mm of shell growth. Sorry to use metric, but it fits the bill also. It looks great in the tank, and i might try and get a crocea soon. I dose two part C-Balance one cap full of each part every other day or so.

Nice. That is exactly like what I want to set up. I have the 20L and I am about to paint the back Blue. I have an AC500 with 2 heaters in it, and I am gonna run a PC Dual 65 with lunars.

ya there was a minimum that we all had to order. And there was a minimum weight too, otherwise shipping would have been way higher i think is what the guy told me.

what is the type of algea you have growing there? The brilliant green one with the white insides. I have a small stalk growing on some new LR that I purchased, and I know it's not detrimental, I jsut wondered what the name was so that I could look it up. Thanks in advance.

Hello, It's my tank as well. I actually have no idea what kind of algea it is, but i like it. it sheds an aragonite skin, so it is sucking up a little calcium. I've been thinking about getting rid of it lately, but it's pretty cool looking.

Thats the idea with the rock on the right. It's allready starting to look awesome.

And it takes time and a lot of frag buying/trading and good deals from friends
