That is a pretty sweet hammer torch. Australia has some of the sickest ones. How come its not very elongated?

That hammer is stunning! Rest of the tank looks fantastic too, but the hammer is quite the eye catcher.

Oh definitely! It's easily the nicest hammer I've ever seen!! I would say it's nice and compact to it simply being that way and not having settled fully yet. I'm hoping it stays like that as I can't afford it to be super long haha

Thanks man, it's okay to admit you can only see the hammer and the rest of the tank is just the background it's just stunning!

Hey Dom, what is happening out at Deer park? Dave hasn't up dated his Facebook page in ages with news of new SPS shipments. I live in Ferntree Gully, so cant always get out there on the off chance. Is he still renovating?

Thanks guys, the tank and I are still alive. Unfortunately the tank has been coming in a little lower on my list of things to do than I would really like. Depression can be a real "C U Next Tuesday".

However, due to some nice posts the other day on FB and the evil Reef two Reef lol I managed to get into gear last night and have started a major overhaul and rescape of the tank There's some filthy **** in there hahaha



So we're both alive, trudging along and getting there slowly! I'm really hoping to whip the tank into shape in the next three weeks before we're off to a holiday in the US for three weeks!

Whilst it may seem like an insurmountable mountain at times, chipping away at the tank can be a wonderful stress relief mate. Yell out if you need a hand at all

It did feel great doing some real tank work! Going to get a couple barrels of NSW and really start working through it!
I appreciate it Sam

The gap between the 2 rock formations is sweeeeeeeet.
I really like it!!!!

Now, get rid of that coral in the sandbed and clean that back and side panels.
I don't think that you're in to get your cat disapointed with you.
Do I need to repost that picture???Do I??????


Best wishes mate!

It's a little less obvious now but still a gap to separate the flubber out haha

I'm still in the process.. sheesshh I'm waiting till I'm happy with the scape then the cleanup will begin I will be leaving the algae on the overflow as the fish love grazing from it so I won't be taking away their snack board haha
