nice
 
dang man you dont mess around..looks real good..how long has it been up..and when i had a flame hawk it nibbled some polyps..like those stars.

So far everything seems to be running ok. Took the domino damsel back to the pet store. Thinking about getting a protein skimmer not sure yet. I have had some mixed thoughts over it. Some say yay some say nay. for a 30gal. Funny you said the flame hawk nibbled at the stars. Well he did nibble at the other coral the one he is in the pic with. When i saw him do it the dang coral fell off the stone he was living on and i guess swam for safety he is somewhere behind the wall of live rock... not sure if he is dead or what.. didnt feel like hunting for him... any suggestions on that.

oops
 
sorry i meant flame angel...and yeah i would glue the xenia frag back on..

well he fell off yesterday and i guess is somewhere behing the wall of rock. wont be able to search for him until tommorow morning sometime. You think he would still be alive?

badxgillen 03-18-2011 11:12 AM

hmmm
 
most likely still alive and waiting for your retrieval...sometimes i cant get to some frags in the same situation as yours and a day wont hurt to bad on some species but the sooner you get to it the better.

Well found him behind the wall put him back on rock he was on. Hope he makes it.... What do you think?
