Sometimes when you walk into your local aquarium shop you are drawn to the unexpected and this is what happened here. I wanted to add a dash of colour to the Aquascape and as I was looking at the the different options of green and more green this little orange disc gleamed like a beacon! I really had no choice and I’m really happy that it’s mine. It should get up to three inches in diameter and might have a shuffle around but I think by some sort of cosmic coincidence that the space at the fron of my reef is not only the ideal place but the right size – unless it tells me differently and shuffles off.
