Few pics from my reef

Here are a few pics form my 55g.

Top is a male lyretail anthias, bottom is my boy....a velvet multicolor wrase. Was a WYSIWYG piece from LiveAquari. Anthias was just purchased in New Orleans on Friday. I hope he colors up more soon.

Wrasse & anthias again, a little blurry but still a cool pose.


Pumping xenia, gets a lot of attention from visitors.


Emerald Crab, yellow polyps in background.


Tomato clown hosting with a candy cane coral colony. Brain that is messed up & a frag of green star polyps.

Some decent looking zoas from a frag pack.


Keyan Tree coral, along with a red mushroom & a few neon green mushrooms.


Sacrophyton leather.


GSPs I had fragged & attached to a Mag-Float. So far doing good & have started spreading. I even use it every couple of days.


Finally I'll show off the colors on my wrasse :P Though he wasn't cheap he was well worth it. He has become more like a dog to me. One fish I would recommend is one of him(Cirrhilabrus luteovittatus).


Every since getting the anthias the clown & wrasse stay out much more. Which I read is common once an anthias is in the tank as they are so active. I hope ya'll enjoyed the pics, any questions please ask.

Nice, but for that male he might not brighten up any more then that. I have one and he is dull looking.

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.

Thanks for the compliments. USMC he was a good bit pinker in the store. Hopefully soon he'll just get a little colored up more. They have lyretails from a different area that aren't pink, but stay yellowish like him. Brandon I love zoos also. I have 4 small colonies in there right now. I just can't find any nice looking ones in town & have only odered off the internet 2 times.
