Sweet, that last pic is great.

Yeah I am not the best photog I know, LOL. I actually took those first blurry ones trying to show someone how the zoas were starting to grow IN to the Xenia :/

Here are some more from today, to show growth! (all of these look better and the colors pop a lot more with only the actinics on, I may take some more later tonight)
Star Polyps


Palys




Found the Bumblebee snail LOL (I won't see him for weeks at a time he gets himself so hidden in the rockwork!)

I signed up for some pre-sale stuff at a frag swap here on Feb 20th... I should be getting:
2 purple mushrooms
Bam Bam Zoas (red/pink/orange/blue)
Sunny D's Zoas (rainbow!)

Oooh, can't wait!
I think also on my list are possibly a frogspawn and/or hammer if my lighting is suitable.

Well, we FINALLY got the hardwood floor in!!!!

Everyone in both tanks survived the move and partial tank breakdown. Except my purple firefish. Not sure what happened to him..... :( I got a regular firefish to replace him, and he is actually sleeping in the exact same hole/cave the purple one did!

Tomorrow is the SLASH frag swap.... should have some new goodies to show off soon!!!

Here are a few cruddy pics from last night.... a few of the corals have still not opened up yet. I plan on taking some pics with just the actinics on only as well, some of the new ones like the hammer look AWESOME under the blue only!! I will take some new pics, and post the other ones in this thread as soon as I get an ID on the ones I won in the raffle and got from the donor program.

Sunny D's Zoas - my favorite!!




Un-opened Toadstool




Hammer .... my other favorite!
