Yes, it's fuzzy but you can still see the goby's little shrimp "friend" down there at the bottom. Thanks for sharing!

How dare you show us good coral pictures with no FTS. Lol.

Looks great. I love the mushrooms and Palys. Where did you find your Pistol? I may get one for my YWG when I upgrade, and if I cant find/order one I would order it on liveaquaria when I order my Yellow-Headed Jawfish in December-January.

And I see you have a little frag of Xenia...

i got my first pistol from an hour away LFS for 30 fricken bucks and it was fine in my tank for like 2 weeks then disapeared.. so i picked up another randalli pistol shrimp and 10 nassarius for $26 (there was a huge sale! ) from a closer LFS.
had the second shrimp for about 2, 3 maybe a month and he disapeared.
then all of a sudden one day my goby had a hole, so while looking at it a pistol shrimp comes buzzing on out with a shell in his hand.. i was soooo happy and not to mention i just had to move a clump of GSP and they were right up front..they are by far the coolest ever, when a snail gets near the hole the shrimp will either snap his claws or roll it out of the hole and away..
then it was either last night or tonight ( my days are screwed up because i work night shifts ) i spotted a pistol shrimp on the other side of the tank.. im pretty sure they wouldnt roam that far so i think it was the other one!! super happy about that too.

so if your looking for a pistol shrimp go for it, the randalli guys are smaller and i hear its common they get "lost" in bigger tanks, so there is also tiger pistol shrimp to consider

ohh and ive had the xenia for awhile now.. i think i like zoos the best but my tank is lacking them, theres a frag swap on the 25th that im attending so hopefully i can get some nice looking things, i already pre ordered a bunch of snails, a cucumber,and a crocea clam that i just have to pick up when i get there and im picking up the rest of my parts for a retrofit icecap im building.. so basically ive spent 200 without even going lol .. so will have to see whats there

I meant send it over...Lol.

Thanks for the info about the Pistol. That will be helpful.

And I want to see what you get at that swap. Those are always good.
