    More natural looking? :D

    But yeah there's more than one way to do tanks, I'll agree.

    Careful, Lyn. The 'natural' thing's a touchy subject among the sandless :p
    :D

    hehehe, nah I was referring to the "natural looking" comment being the mixed reef of softies and stonies intermingled, I have no issues with the sand being "more natural" (in fact I agree to a point), I just go sandless for other reasons and I deal with the "lack of natural" :)

    Granted I have VERY little experience, only Hawaii in person other than photographs, and I don't recall seeing too much of stonies growing with softies in between, etc.

    I think my tank looked more natural because you don't really see the rocks and I have sand and lots of little fish! All the other tanks had way more cooler - rarer corals than mine, Mike's tank had really great color too! Maybe Eric managed to get a good pic? We'll see.

    I meant pics of my tank...... Mike, your pics look great. Now you have a bench mark on what the tank looked like clean and precrash.

    LOL ;D

    Well, I don't think there are too many spots in the ocean with a glass bottom.. :) But after seeing all the beautiful "sandless" tanks and the obvious advantages, I am just about converted over. :D
