New Chapter , New Thread For Staromsa's SPS Dominated Tank


Recommended Posts

Good Evening , seniors/bro's/sis,

Today i start a new thread to mark my 3rd Month of my tank. Also to let all of you see the 3 months of hard work, money and of course time spent on this tank. Although there might be some clashes between me and the seniors sometime last month, but i sincerely still hope that we src can still regard each other as bro and sis. Regardless of my mistakes and stubborness that i i had commited during the past. So let us Let Bygones be Bygones alright?

Today i will be posting some close up shots taken as of last Saturday 06/07/13. Btw this date means alot to me as it marks the day me and my girlfriend started dating. Its our 2years annivesary!! Woohoo!!

Ohh and i forgot to add, pls excuse my poor photo taking skills as i really have no talent in taking photos. For colour wise, im sure all of you know, what can u expect from a camera phone? Tio bo? Hahaha.

So most colours that you guys see now will be much better if seen real life!

Today, i'll allow the pictures to speak for itself!!

Cheers!!

The colour looks kind of washed out but otherwise I like the scaping. Well done and keep it up! I'm sure you will invest in some lights that would portray the rich colours of your sps sometime soon? I look forward to see the updated photos.
