Even more reason to post up some pics,this way you will be really impressed with what you have done over the time enjoying the tank. I used to think the same thing as you and try and hide any faults I may have had,but then at some point along the way I realized everyone goes through these times and we all need a little help learning. What better way than to learn from other people.

The rightmost is a gorgonian from a frag class at the LFS.
The bird's nest in the middle is also from the frag class.
The rock on which the gorgonian sits has a small Xenia on it.

Let me get this straight you got to go to a frag class? What goes on at one,I would love to know more. And is that a photosynthetic gorgonian you have?

The LFS has "classes" on various subjects to attract customers. They chopped up an unruly bird's nest for two classes I attended. The chiller failed in a display tank, and the bird's nest was doing badly. We "students" cut the coral apart and glued pieces to rubble.
I have no idea what the gorgonian is, although I obviously keep it close to the light.
Should any of you be nearby central Arkansas, here is a link to the LFS and here is their Facebook page.

I'm closer to central Illinois but this almost seems like it'd be worth the trip! I do have family in Houston ... Road trip?! I wonder if my wife would notice that we took a little detour? Am I obsessed if every city I go to I visit the local city aquarium and a few LFS's?...

Not obsessed but smart. To be able to see not only the different creatures in a number of tank variations but to be able to see how others get things to work can assist in your journey through the hobby.

There are a number of great saltwater stores located in the north and southern suburbs of Chicago too.
