your tank looks great... urchins are strong little buggers if your rocks are moved around that your culprit... are you going to let your tank grow out or are you planning on adding more?

so heres an update.I added a kenya,some zoa's and a yellow watchman but he a little shy yet.He hides in his cave alot.I will get a pic one day when i feed him. :D

 

 

I did have one loss the other day.Im not sure what caused it but i found my bigger hermit attacking one of my big snails.In the end the snail was dead but not sure if the hermit killed him to try to take over the shell but soon as i saw this i ran to the lfs for some hermit shells.In less then ten min he was in a new shell. :angry:

Look really good! Like the b/w paired with the orange clown. The little green toadie has grown a lot too. Are your mushrooms making a comeback after all? Did your rock color up a little more? In the first pics it doesn't look as purple.

 

I WANT THAT BIG STRIPED HERMIT, I LOVE THOSE! :wub:

That toadie is really growing now.I love my black clown he is a bit off lol.Some baby purples were showing up in my sand but then upgraded pump to a mj 1200 and they are mia now.I do have a few coming back on my lr.One of my rics has another mouth now so that made my day.Sorry i got rid of that big hermit long ago before you said you liked them with that pencil urchin.......He was a pest but he was very busy all the time.I think i have a smaller stripped one would have to look lol.Rock is getting little better but not as much as would like.Wish i could get some better pics but cant figure out this cam.

Free bump! :P

 

This tank is exceptionally beautiful, pics don't do it justice. Everything looks so healthy. If you want to go SPS, do you have a skimmer?

Thanks i try to keep this thing well kept.The 7 or 8 months its been going now have gone quite well only loss has been them purple mushrooms and a few hermits that have got stuck,oh and the pepermint shrimps that got ate by hungry star.Other then that all has gone well

 

 

i was doing research on a small one,but think gonna keep away.might just try a monti up top and that would be it for sps.I just got this brain and a few small orange rics.Oh and tash when i get in town to drop that towel off ill trade you that sand star for some lose purple shrooms lol.Dont want the green ones to take over would much rather have purple lol.
