That thing is a beast. I like how all the fish look as if they are staring in awe at it.

On the right side is my gigantea anemone. I've had it for about 5 years I think.

what kind of anemone is that? it's really cool. I like the skunk clowns in it, I feel like they are an under-appreciated clown

It's an S.gigantea. The clowns are the only fish I have ever owned that I ever named. Fred and Ethel have been with me for 5 years.

Hello,

my biggest coral is a large nepthea (almost in the middle of the tank) - but due to the size of my tank I have to cut here frequently; and the gorgonia on the far left of the tank is now arround 50cm high

regards

Markus

Those are some monster leather corals in those tanks. Although I dont have a picture to prove it I had a finger leather coral grow from a 2" frag to a 15" tall monster in my 12gallon aquapod with just the pc lighting before I had to frag it.

I had a colt take over 1/3 of a 55 gallon. Those things are nuts. Even though I loved it I traded it out to some poor soul who said he wanted a big one. When we met to make the trade it had shrunkin in the bag to 1/5 it's size and he said thats the perfect size for my 20 gallon ! I made a quick gettaway lol. That was 7 years ago btw.
