I like your new scape.

Very nice scape.
The rock looks very much like real live rock as well.

Thank you! I really love the Real Reef Rock - I had been looking for it and could not find a way to get it in Singapore until recently. It was one of the "consolations" to me having to tear down my tank - at least I can set it back up with a Real Reef Rock scape!

The dip process is finally over and I really hope that nightmare is over. Rocks are now in but the tank is a mess as I haven't had the time to glue the corals in yet. It's a lot easier buying a few a week and gluing them in than 70ish colonies and frags at once. The colour coordination gives me a headache!

All the frags glued onto one big disk?

I picked the frags and the seller glued them onto the big disk for delivery.

Here's what the tank looks like now. Long way to go to colour everything up, but it's a start! I'm working on the next video that will hopefully be out soon

Those are some beautiful frags too, where did they come from? Are they wild or tank grown? The colors are amazing.

Thank you! I'm playing around with the lighting now to add more blue hours... hope it improves the colours of the corals!

It's a Zebra Tang, Acanthurus polyzona

They are tank grown. It's my first time buying from this seller. I have a few more from him that I want, but my tank has no more space!

Sorry I took so long to put the video together.* The clips in this video were all filmed on 17 April, about a week after I finished the dipping process, and barely a few days after I rescaped and glued the corals in place. I expected the SPS to be super ****ed off from the rough dipping treatment and the new scape, but they seem contented!

How long did it take your frags to become full colony?
