    well, I have given up on keeping sps - it's ok that I'm just not the type of reef keeper than can maintain the low nutrient system that they need. My little milli fell over (despite that I had glued it) and disappeared into my rock work. I decided that was my last attempt.

    I spent at least an hour the other night digging a frag out of a piece of rock. I was about to give up and it just popped out. Your tank, from the last photos i saw, still looks amazing so no need to add sps. ;)

    I'm sorry about the baby frag. Don't give up! Try a little piece of encrusting monti. They are a lot more forgiving from what I hear and they don't fall over because they are flat :)
