Waiting on the newest additon to come out and see the light.

My new Green dragon eye Zoa


ALso, a shot of my hammer coral after weeks of finding a spot he would stay and wouldn't get knocked over or down to the sand by the coral banded shrimp. DOing much better now.

New Zoa opened up. Should I cut the rock it's on in half to (not through the zoa but below it) so it sits down closer to the LR to give it a better chance to spread or leave it alone?

It will spread down over it in time. Mine was on a frag plug and spread down over that while thing and onto the rocks. I love the Zoas.

Wel I haven't updated in over a month. Here's the newest addition and also a shot of my first homegrown?? mushroom. My mushroom had a baby. A couple other shots. Still fighting a minor algae outbreak but nowhere near as bad as it was a couple weeks ago. Killing the lights and adding more snails worked wonders. My only concern is my hammer coral hasn't seemed very happy for a little while now. He'll only fully open for a couple hours a day and then seems to only stay about half open for the other portion of lights on. (it's doesn;t retract like when the lights are out though) Not sure what's going on there. I may have to give into the fact that theres just not wnough lighting for a coral like this one and return it while it's still realtively healthy to the lfs. Here's some oics ti see progress.

momma and new baby (attached to the shell also, lol) Just to the right you can see the either some type of fuzzy or hairy mushroom. It about doubled in size.


Pulsing Xenia


Full tank shot. You can see some corraline growth. Really exploded over the last few days. Also see the bit of algae problem I've still got.


and one more with a more close up of corraline.


Thanks for looking and welcome comments suggestions.
