Here is a FTS:

Several fish have been removed to lower the bioload as well as allow these guys ample room to grow. The fivefish you see are the only fish in the tank:

True Percula (mated pair)
Desjardin's Tang
Purple Tang
Regal Tang

I came home today to find that the Ritteri had decided to take a stoll. He planted himself at the top of the tank covering my overflow. Thankfully, the tank water did NOT run out onto the floor, but it did raise the water level in the display by 2" causing my return chamber to run low causing my ATO to fill up the chamber thereby lowering my gravity. (Does that make sense?)

Darn it! I changed 20g of water to get it back into range.

The anemone managed to get himself wedged between the return nozzels and the overflow screening. Thankfully, this tank is a Perfecto tank with the removable screen, but it did not prevent the anemone from getting pinched and he suffered a small (1/2") tear.

I managed to get him lose and then placed him in the middle of the tank. He immediately began moving to find a better spot. I watched intently to get stuff out of his way and he settled directly underneath the nozzels. That was last night. When I got home today to check on him, I could NOTsee any evidence of trauma! I'm sure he couldn't possibly repair himself that quickly, but all good for now.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

We went to OKC this weekend and I found a pretty cool offering. It's not fully open yet, but check out that color. Have you ever seen a goniopora this bright?:
