So I had my lens extension tubes at hand and took a few shots of already documented livestock. Here's a few (shot freehand so I apologize for my shakey hands! :lol: Starting off with a semi-artsy-fartsy Linckia laevigata.

I'm the last to jump into that name fad si to me it's just a nice piece of Turbinaria reniformis, but yes, you could call it LA lakers scroll. B)

Nice I have one in my pics on my thread also. How big is yours? How's the growth of it?

Maybe 3 1/2" in diameter. Haven't had it long enough to really elaborate on growth rate. Seems to be so far slightly slower grower than montipora caps.

Maybe it just needs to settle in. My grows so fast I can see it without picture comparison. It's one of my favorite pieces tho and they have awesome polyp extension. Your tank is looking great BTW.

I know I'm not that great photographer, but this hurts man. :haha:

Did that algae of your also have eyes and little visible spine in each blob and did it also wiggle about?

(Yes, I witnessed first hand my Gobiodon histrio spawn this batch (of algae) on their home acro.

Thanks! My best guess would be the combination of all the aforementioned plus about a hundred other variables. Stable conditions and not stressing about minor details are the key IMO.

It's okay. I think there's different kinds of eggs for different kinds of fish etc.. The eggs are still there with both parents well on guard. They come nipping at my hand now if I go too close! :o

See the babies?
