Default 6' 115

After some procrastination I've finally got my 115 done! It is home to 22 tank raised duboisi Maswa and 18 f1 bulu (thanks again Andrew!) points, also 7 syno lucipunnis in there as clean up crew. Hope you guys like it?

Nice tank !! Love the rocks . I used the same rocks in two different setups and the results were the same. All the fish would darken up to the point where the color was dulled and almost washed out . I took them out and replaced them with white stones and it was like night and day .

Hmm, I'll have to keep an eye on that I definitely want the best coloration possible.

Are you saying that they became to light and the colors blended a little to much?

Naw....Andrew. The complete opposite . The yellow stripe in my Ikola was faint and "dingy" looking . It was as if the Ikola were trying to blend in with the rocks . I changed back to Holey Rock and some other white rocks and the yellow immediately returned . I used the same Black Starr or Black Magma rock with some Moops and the same thing happened......sunspot was dull and dark . On a side note...the rocks did look really good with my old Moba and Burundi groups .
