Updated FTS:


As you can see, my tank is maturing. Coraline is starting to grow all over, as well as all corals besides my SPS (I am more of an LPS guy anyways... Torches and Frogspawns and Candycanes and Brains...).

New additions:

-Torch Coral
-Joker Frags (Zoas)
-Neon Green Candycane
-Neon Green Open Brain

But with all good news comes bad news. My Flasher bit the dust a few weeks ago and I just never annouced it.

Let me know what you think.

Tank is looking nice Cody.

What is with the overflow box? It looks like it is trying to float??

Cody, it's beautiful. I love the neon greens. Sorry about the flasher. To what do you attribute the death to?

Thanks guys. I'll post my close up shots soon.

Pasfur - It's actually a surface skimmer, because for some reason this tank gets terrible surface scum. I just forgot to re-align it for the pic.

Kym - I honestly have no idea. I want to say that the Mystery Wrasse could have played a part in it (being another wrasse), but saying the Flasher was introduced first that doesn't make sense to me.

Mull - I use three sets of 78W T5's. The Nova Extreme SLR ones (I think). The bulbs right now are standard 10k/Actinic, but I'm going to be adding blue bulbs (yes, blue and not actinic) along with pink bulbs that I cannot remember the name of. I think I've seen 12k bulbs as well and want to try those out.
