Very nice... I mean, I have seen some really small tanks on NR.com and some of them do look quite nice

I wonder if you have seen this tank?

I do love both your rectangular tanks, but wouldn't you love to get your hands on one of these....?

i can get those at my LFS for about ?20 with a light fitting - tube (which would need to be a blue rather then the white they come with), ?10 for tube, ?10 for pump, ?15-30 for LR or ?30-45 for LR with frags ?4 for salt, ?7-10 for hydrometer and you're all set!

... i think i might go for this rather then what i was thinking of before... cheaper and looks nicer!

there is ofcourse the problem of evaporation... but a piece of plastic cut to size should solve that!

oh yes, and the heater...

Yeah but I just don't know what other coral to add. I was thinking a couple more mushrooms, maybe a couple more polyps since the original two Button polyps I bought have sprung or reproduced 2-3 new polyps. Kev what corals do you plan to add to your 2.5?

Not 100% certain yet but I have plans. I have my eye on an Orange Center Ricordia and a Double Green Ricordia, other than that it will probably be a bit of LPS (Hammer and the Candy Cane that is already in there) Maybe some Mushrooms, star polyps and I will try and get hold of some nice Zoanthid colour morphs
