So I went to pick up the list of SPS that I mentioned a few posts back :

 

Rock #1

setosa
hawkins enchinata
green digitata
unknown green/blue acro
candlight acro
monti spongodes
pink birdsnest
unknown green acro

Rock #2
unknown green/blue acro
green birdsnest
ponape birdsnest
red planet mini colony

 

They are all glued VERY close together (some touching each other) I have them acclimating at the moment, and I am thinking of moving the ones that can be easily removed from the current spot, and mounting them in my tank where I want them.

 

The Hawkins is right up against the spongodes (actually touching) , but I can't see a way to remove one of them without doing some decent damage. The Hawkins doesn't look to be stressed by the close neighbor, and is growing away from it, so I may leave those two alone for now until I can figure it out.

 

There were a few minor casualties during the transfer (small broken branch here and there) , but they have all been mounted on frag plugs and seem to be happy still.

 

Many of the pieces are mini colonies , while a few are still 1.5-2" frags. The Red Planet , Green Bird , Pink Bird , Digitata are all HUGE. I can't wait to get these in the tank and get some pics up.

They seem to really like Cyclops & Rotifers, but its always mixed with Rods Food (original & coral blend)

 

I turn off all flow for about 30-45 minutes so they can catch the food. Vortechs & Tunze seem to always win that battle for some reason

Couple of practice shots with an old Fujifilm P&S. Not sure they're any better than my phone though. :lol:

Those are all the exact way I took them , no touch up at all. I played with my lighting for what seemed like FOREVER , but those are all true to life colors . Its nice being able to dial in the lights. LOL

I went way fancy with it and put waaaaaay to much time and stress in to it last time. Would have been much easier/cheaper to just buy one, :lol:

Just for momma tailes. They are iPhone pics , but still pics. I am going to try and get video, but if it turns out to be crappy, then I'm not posting it.

Cool. Your Hog eat any shrimp?

 

Also, do you think there would be enough pods in my 40B with 40B or 55 Sump to have a Pipe and a Mandy?

The Hog is pretty chill , its the pajama cardinal that is the A-hole of the tank.

 

If you are wanting to keep Pipes and/or Mandy's my advice would be to spend the cash on the ones that you know for a fact are eating frozen. My system is roughly 120g total with a 18g fuge , and I would not have taken the chance on the pipes had they not been eating frozen . I have really good luck with Rods Food & Cyclops , and plan to add Nutrimar Ova to the mix very soon.

Good advice. Wasn't planning on a Hog anyway.

 

Also, I won't be getting a Mandy or Pipe unless it is trained on frozen.
