So clean and beautiful looking!

 

I have a few questions....

1-What's your favorite fish/coral in your tank?

2-how much growth have you seen in the frogspawn?

3-does the fungia move around a lot?

 

LOOKS REALLY PRETTY!!!

thank you so much :)

 

to answer your questions...

 

1) my favorite fish in the tank, sadly, is probably my clowns. the second i whip out anything that resembles food they both start doing 360's and dance like crazy. they know the colors of the bag. its so fun. my pseudo is so much like a wrasse is fun, he zooms in and out of the rocks, but i dont get to see his beautiful colors very often.

 

as far as coral, i really love my pom pom xenia because when the pumps go off they clap in and out really cool, second place would probably be my flower nem. watching it eat is absolutely fascinating

 

2) i bought my frogspawn with 2-3 heads last year. i feed it along with my anemones with mysis shrimp. it was originally the size of a golf ball maaaaaybe, now its getting close to a softball sized while fully expanded.

 

3) i havent seen the plate coral ever move. as far as i know they cant. when they are fully retracted they almost look like a coin, and then it pillows out as it extends

Why sadly? Nemos make you sad?!?!

i always thought xenia was so cool to opening and closing, but everyone just calls it a weed :(

wow, that must be cool to see it inflate!

and that flower nem looks soooo cool!

also, I just noticed those crazy hot pink zoas!!!

COOL!

Haha the reason I say that about the clowns is that everyone loves clowns and its uch a trendy answer. But I just can't help it lol

 

Xenia is freakin awesome, but yes it is a weed. I've had to cut it up and make frags. It grows so much tho that it kind of makes you feel accomplished for such a flourishing colony lol. If your in california I can give you a frag for free.

 

Ill have to get some vids of the xenia clapping and the flower nem eating.

 

Oh and welcome to the BC owners club haha :)

Long time no see man. Glad that you are making a new tank thread for your tank. I was wondering what had happened to it or if it was still up and kicking.

 

It looks great and it looks like it's come a really long way from your last update. Love all the variety you have in there and the new MH bulb looks great.
