Nice to see a more mature long tank. Yours has come a long way!

Watermelon zoas.

Purple photosynthetic gorgonian. This one has a distinctively flat "stalk", can't wait to see how it looks grown out. I now have 4 different photosynthetic gorgs in this tank.

Lime green goniopora. This one is aquacultured, grown from frags, so it should be a good candidate for my tank. This doesn't look like the one that is a "sure bet loss" that everyone dreads. Hard to see in the pics, but it actually does have blue dots in the center.

Here is a video of my reef. Pardon the background noise. I'm a loser at video stuff-- but you can see most of what's in this little tank.

Meanwhile, if anyone can suggest some free video editing software that I could use to put some music in the background of this, let me know!

I have a sweet, long shelf rock that I made for this tank that I need to get to soaking. I'll be moving away in about 6 months, so when I do, I plan on having that rock fully cured (cement) and cycled, and ready to go. It will really add that extra dimension to this tank.

EDIT: Can Youtube be embedded on this site?????

Got a ton of pics. Because of camera color and LED color trickery, the backgrounds look a bit odd, but these corals actually do look like this in person.


FTS, 5/20/2012. Pardon the streaks on the glass.

Frogspawn (this is not a hammer despite the shape of the tentacles; they are definitely branched with many irregular shaped tentacles.)

Two blastos. These were literally a "frag plug" for a small leather I bought, and when I got the leather home, the frag plug suddenly "blossomed". It was an old skeleton that regenerated lol. Needless to say, 2 for 1 deal, and i like the blastos more than the leather.

Nice setup, how is your rics doing under LEDs, wanting to set up a ric only 11x11x11" tank with 2 CW and 4 rb LEDs, also adding 4 uv's for pop. Just don't want to damage my rics.

This tank has been moved from Wake Forest, NC to Summerville, SC and succesfully moved all but a couple photosynthetic gorgonians, which ship poor anyhow.


Right now I'm setting up my 45g 23" cube, so this 11g tank is in a bit of disorder and looks awful, but the corals and fish are quite happy and healthy. I'll move this 11g to it's final spot in our house later once I get this big tank set up, but for now it's set up temporary.

Even all the zoas on the beer bottle are doing well!

I only have 1 actual ric, it's doing great.
