    @greenfinger 2 his tailfin is always like that when he's relaxed. he only spreads his tail to scare other fish away

    @nick.scott the flame angel never nips on my corals, and the white puffer fish doesn't touch them either. the new puffer however seems to like my corals :( and they only grow about 4 inches maximum

    Your invertz are so cool and colorful, what do they call the lobster?

    Do you dose your tank?

    The lobster is called "Enoplometopus Debelius" or purple reef lobster in English.
    What do you mean by "dose your tank" nick.scott ?

    Grts, Toothloose

    Lobster is amazing :D
    I thought that my crayfish is different - blue but this look awesome. It's proof that salt water animals are more beautiful ;)

    Kind of like with freshwater tanks, dosing fertz. Do you dose any supplements like ca, mag, iodine, etc. just curious because your tank seems really healthy.

    Yep daily fertz. I have 4 bottles from aquaconnect. It is called energy elements number 1 to 4. They contain all sorts of supplements for my corals such as Mg, Sr, Ba, Li, Rb, Cr, Co, Mo, B, Se, Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Ni, Sn, K, F, Br and one bottle with spur elements. My local aquarium dealer recommended this to me. It is a simple and easy daily fert for your corals. Oh yeah and if needed I have a bottle of Mag and iodine too, but only used them twice.
    For the rest just a weekly water change and keep my saltlevels steady by adding osmose water.

    Grts, Toothloose

    Toothloose.

    I had a lot of catch to do with all those fantastic Marine creatures in your collection, how many tanks do you have now?
    A few years ago I wanted to go back to SW but the cost was just out of my field.

    I currently have One reef tank, two shrimp tanks from about sixty litres, My axolotl tank from 150 litres, two Ten litres Nano tanks with soms leftover Cherry shrimps and My betta. And now i also have a big planted glass vase on my table with some leftover shrimps. So that makes about 6 tanks and a vase in total :) and I'm working on my fish room so I can put all my tanks in the same room, cause now they're scattered around the house :)

    Toothloose.

    Thank you for that reply

    Have you thought about a bigger house as well, I am struggling to keep up with two tanks let alone all what you have.

    No problemo :)
    A bigger house would be nice :) but I still live together with my mother and most of my tanks aren't that big so they'll all fit in one room.
    And with my paycheck I can't afford to buy or rent a big house on my own, I think it will be an apartment to start with. I'll need to find myself a girlfriend with lots of money who likes aquariums :)

    lol! just one who loves you enough to let you keep them...like my wife. She lets me indulge my hobby. I remind her it could worse and more expensive...hunting, golf, cars, whatever else.

    However, your salty photos are going to lead to trouble for me...its a bug I've been fighting off and would require $$$
