I took these shots to put in a for sale thread, as I'm looking to thin out the larger colonies and sell off the yellow polyps, but they were decent shots so I might as well post them.

Thank you!!! Picking up for more nice Z's and P's tomorrow, pictures will of course follow. 

 

As an aside, it looks like I'm getting a NanoBox Reef hybrid light, as @DaveFason found a few bodies lying under some stuff in the old shop. :blink: Anyway, despite the apparent murders, I couldn't help myself and whittled down the wife into (sort of) agreeing with me on it. Anyone want to buy a Kessil A160WE?

I figured another cat photo was due.

Pulled the trigger on my light today, t-minus three weeks until I get my NanoBox Hybrid. I am toooooo excited!

Not much to update right now, except that I have sold my old tank and Kessil, so I am currently running on a cheapo black box Chinese LED fixture. I should hopefully receive my new light toward the end of the month, or the beginning of September. I don't know if I'll be able to stand waiting this long!

 

I forgot to mention I grabbed a Porcelain Crab recently:

Also, the replacement pump from IM came in, and it is louder than the one with the broken impeller. I am getting really frustrated by this, and will probably just have to pull the trigger on a Sicce Syncra 1.5 :angry:

He is SO tiny.

Your GSP was opening within hours of being in the tank and is currently happily open!  I need to grab a pic.

Great to hear! I hope it gets more love in your tank, and I find one that looks more like I envisioned!

You can see a frag of Weetie's bright green GSP in my 5.5 on the right, the rock with my yellow and purple feather duster!

I do like yours! I found a local who has some that looks nice, and he won't accept money for it! I offered!

Some new Zoas and Palys:

 

Decided to snap some shots of my recent pickups. I decided I am going to keep things on plugs for a bit while I determine where I want things to go, and while I wait on the light. Sorry some of these pictures aren't great.

 

Orange Rainbow:

Not sure what these are:

36785260495_ba9708c805_k.jpg

 

Galaxy People Eaters:

36785260205_3994203a22_k.jpg

 

Sopranos:

36615194382_fac84cbfba_k.jpg

 

Red Hornet:

36785259725_71e62c2c19_k.jpg

 

Midas:

36785259505_9f0c0b7457_h.jpg

 

Goochster?

36615194182_16cc44dc05_h.jpg

 

Magician:

36615194142_d9b31a1ee5_k.jpg

 

And just a decent shot of my boring ole shrooms:

36785259095_9c0e314b0f_k.jpg

 

The Blue Hornet I bought didn't make it, but they are giving me a replacement. I also have Sunny D's, Blue Agaves, Armor of Gods, Purple People Eaters, Pink Krakatoas, and Utter Chaos coming soon. I'm buying / trading locally for a lot of this, so I haven't been paying a ton.

Great shots!  I have now added a couple things to my zoa wish list!  I really like that red mushroom, I've been trying to find red ones locally with no luck.  What are you using to take photos?

Thanks! If you were closer, I would send you one. Mine came as a hitchhiker on a hermit crabs shell! And I'm using a Samsung NX3000 with an adaptor for Canon lenses. I need to get a new camera eventually, this is kind of a pain!

Thanks! I agree, I've always had a soft spot for them. The Blue Agave is one I've never owned, but looks similar. I can't wait to get it though, as it looks amazing.

:lol: I know, aren't they awesome?! I was so happy to find them at a decent price after wanting them years ago, when they were going for like $150 per polyp.

Oh, no idea! It's sad because I probably would have, but only if I had found them in person instead of online....

 

Recent FTS,:

There is a fair bit of shadowing with the temporary light I am using, and the color isn't exactly ideal in person. I am hoping the new light will arrive before I go to the beach so I can have it set up for that week.

@DaveFason sent me a little status update on my light, which should be finished within the week! I had asked him to leave the body as a raw aluminum, as I wanted a more industrial look to the light. Here is the progress on the body so far, and I think we are pretty much ready to move into the final stages.

I requested black for the acrylic top, which I think will give it a nice contrast. I am so pumped to have this thing up and running, expect it to be above the tank by next Sunday!
