Star Polyps are spreading.

Green ones are also spreading

Some of the mushrooms have broken off and found different spots in the tank. Too much light and flow for them in their current location. A few small ones have popped up too. :)

goby is getting fatter. slowly but surely. he's a very picky eater. I hope he doesnt starve himself to death.

If you use firefox, you can right-click, view image and the pics are bigger. If you use IE you can just copy the image location and view it thataway i suppose.

OK. Just got back from the LFS. This is it for livestock! I came home with a single unattached ricordea ($20 bucks - what a ripoff) and a some button polyps. i don't know what color they are cuz i'm color blind ($50). Some halimeda is attached to the same rock. A stomatella hitchhiked on same rock!

I really wanted some blue zoas and frogspawn and/or torch coral but i was unable to get any in time. oh well.

That ric may have been pricey because it's a yuma, not a florida. But it depends on where you live, I guess.

I'd still like to see some more height in that aquascape, but that's just me. Good luck!

My yellow clown goby died yesterday. I'm assuming from malnutrition. While it would eat occasionally it would not usually be enticed to eat anything i tried to feed it. I tried. I might see if the LFS has any fish that are eating prepared/frozen food for sure. I want to SEE it eat before i try to put it in anything that is as new/small as my tank.

Halimeda has been going nuts. Lots of coralline with good colors as well.

My larger polyps don't seem to be doing as well. Perhaps not enough light.
