Yeah I want to swap out one of the other acintic bulbs for a coral plus, which is a cooler white. We'll see what combos work out I suppose.

Maybe you can help me fill it up?

Some coral love for today. They look quite different under the new lights.

And there's you some coraline algae badxgillen, since you said my tank needed some

Well, it's been about a month and a half since I've made any updates here. So I figured it's about time to get some new photos uploaded. Took these earlier today.

I'm workin' on it! Haven't made any new additions in months, mostly just been sitting back and letting it do its thing.

My Kenya tree decided it was [finally] time to split.



Not much has changed, but here's a FTS anywho~ You can see my `not so bubbly` bubble tip 'nem. ' It is now "the attack of corraline"; because i'm too lazy to scrape.

Looks good. My kenya trees dont stop splitting. I had one, now i have a forest and they are everywhere. Sometimes i have to remove some cuz they bother my sps and lps. They ric and the radioactive dragon eyes are my favorite, in this tank.

Do you have any stonys?

I have favites and psammacora, there's some photos somewhere in this thread... not sure where though, not much though. Tons of polyps/softies though.

The dragon eyes were a great addition -- and the Ric is still my favorite in the tank. I have some green rhodactis growing out of my rocks somewhere, I can't for the life of my find it anymore though

My kenya decided to split on top of my lunars, so i'll probably eventually end up having to move those around.

I'll try to get some better photos up soon (phone photos are always bad).

Don't lose any of those lunar palys,they tend to grow a bit slower than the kenya and are much more desirable. I used to have some nice lunar Eclipse Palys but now I have none.
