Taiwan #1


Supporting Member
Returned from living in Taiwan for the last 10 years. Plan is to have a mixed reef clown harem, bunch of small inverts with some higher end bta, maybe a meat coral, but we all know how plans turn out. thinking of turning the reefer ato into a fuge. anyone have suggestions on easy way to raise the walls on 3 sides then adding a weir/grid to the 4th for water to run down? figure this is easier than drilling a hole and using a bulkhead.

hoping to be a more active member of this fine group of miscreants and continue the tradition of PIF, DBTC, etc....

here's a new fts. put in a fancy schmancy rock structure and slowly removing the stax rocks. frags on rack until I commit to a spot on the rock. are there any good guides on coral placement? by shape, color, etc?


closer pic of the corals.
Tank is looking way better now without the stax rock Tony! I'd honestly clip or band saw the frags of the plugs if it's easy (usually can get the super glue to separate) for aesthetic reasons. They might encrust funny if elevated like that.

People have different ways of arranging things based on contrasting colors. I like how Keith gave insight here on color, growth rate, colony structure, etc.
