Wow what an amazing tank!

I've toyed with the idea of marine, but I have so much trouble with goldfish! My minnow tank is the only tank I've never had any problems with...so maybe not for a few (many!) years and then I can have a tank as pretty as yours!

Are you getting more 'free water' fish like the clowns and Edna? Tangs or something? Your hermits are adorable <3

Oh my gosh! That is just spectacular. Wow! It just kept getting more and more beautiful. I would love to eventually be able to do that. Scary. Keep those photos coming.

And i would love to know what kind of camera you are using. Beautiful pictures.

I am leaving the open water for the clowns as they will appreciate it as they get bigger :D Edna is really a rock dweller and spends alot of her time hovering about looking for copepods etc, but it is nice to see her come upfront on occasion.

Thankyou! If I can do it, anyone can. I spent a fair few months researching and 'gen-ing' up on everything - tanks especially, to find something that fitted the designated space I had for it and was also fairly straightforward enough to get going with while cutting my teeth in marine fishkeeping. I've had a few hiccups along the way - mainly down to being ill advised on what corals can go in my tank - but it's all part of the learning curve.

I have a second tank running now so will do a thread about that too. It's only a small one so I have to take it very slowly.

Thankyou to you all for the positive comments. I use a Fuji FinePix S9600 to get my pics. It has great macro capabilities as well as a good zoom lense and I really like it. It's a Bridge camera so preparing me for the step up to a DSLR :D
