Wanted to ask you if you have had any probs with those anemonies walking around and stinging other corals. I've always wanted to put one in my reef, but was afraid that it would kill all of my corals.

Thanks!

Great job on a beautiful tank.

That is really something that the Hydnophora attacked a near by coral like that, I have never seen anything like that before here at RC.

Wonderful diversity!
I love how you just let things play out intstead of intervening and attempting to micromanage the coral wars!!

Very nice. You have what I want for my new house.

Can you work behind your tank upfrom the backwall ? I can't figure it out on the pictures.

Oh and what are the sizes ? I see 30"X35"X76" 76" should be the length, 30 hight ? Am I correct ?

Thanks,

Dennis

This tank is made even more special than it is by the fact that you live in Iceland, and, with limited resources, have made a greater tank than many of us that have it all. Well done!

What is that black/blue "flat-looking" nudibranch like thing?? I have some in my tank too. Do not know what they are or what they eat. Have not added anything too my tank in months.

PS--Nice tank.

This is crazy! Ive had this picture on my desktop for about 2 months, wondering where i found it because i loved it so much. Even went looking through my cache to find where it came from!

Wow, ive stared at that tank for many hours, just imagining, one day, i might be able to create something like that!

Thanks DNA
