Cool little burrow digger

If you look carefully at the top of the live rock in the photo below you can see a tunnel that has built by a little bug. Grain by grain he dragged the sand and formed a long tunnel. It was fascinating to watch. Hard working little bliter.

New addition and corals looking nice

I've added some Xenia to the tank - it was a frag from a friend (Thanks Dave)

As you can see some bits look a bit happier then others.

My mushrooms are looking happy and I like these pictures

Tank Update

Here's the latest tank update.

The odd mushroom was identified as a manjano anenome, which has now been removed as I was warned that it would sting all the mushrooms.

Here's how the tank is currently looking

Both Mushroom coral rocks are looking good.The mushroom frags are developing quickly

Tank Update

Here's the latest update of my tank -I've added a new beautiful green coral which I bought 2nd hand from a friend.

One of the mushrooms is slightly different so I'm going to find out what it is. - It's very pretty though

One of the mushrooms is huge

This is the head of the first mushroom I fragged - It's doing very well

Crab Fishing

Over the weekend we had a little break in Scarborough and took the opportunity to do a little crab fishing. It's great to see the little blighters in their natural environment and watching them catch food (or bait).
When you crab fish you don't use hooks but a bag on a line filled with bait. You but the bags in the water and the crabs scurry from quite a distance on the scent of the food.
Crabs must have a very good scent of smell.
They then hang onto the bag whilst you pull them out of the water on the line.

All the crabs were returned unharmed into the sea.
It's interesting peaceful and good fun.

Little and large bristle worms

Here's a great little picture - a very big and a very small bristle worm.

The big one stretches almost the total height of the tank

New lighting in tank.

I've added a reflector into the hood of the tank. It reflects twice as much light back into the tank. .I've also added moonlight LED's to the tank - the effect is beautiful
