Some shots of my 125

This system has been running for just over 7 months, it still has a long way to grow but I though I'd share some pics anyways.

Your tank is beautiful and should be proud.

The ONLY thing I can recommend is to scrape the back wall so the awesome colors would pop out more for us in your pics.

It's a Lunare Wrasse, every once in ahwile he chases my bi-color blenny but he leaves everyone else alone. I don't have any shrimp or hermits in my tank but if I did he would probobly eat those.

Thank you all very much, PJD- thanks, I actually used magnets to hold those up, but I did use epoxy to hold the magnets to the rocks
