Everybody seems to be doing very well except for me mounting that Bonsai backwards. I’m liking the AIO life.

Looks like you’ve figured it all out. How are you liking the fuge? I’ve always been reluctant because I want to keep the back chambers as clean as possible.

Ya know, I haven't paid too much attention to it. I bought the inTank fuge and the IM AUQA Gadget Chaetomax, set them up, added chaeto and kind of forgot about it. I assume we're fine.

Saw Jason Fox at a frag swap yesterday and had to pick up this colony of his Orange Puffy Acans.

Nice find, that's a sweet acan @LongPig! Your nano reef is really starting to fill up fast! Do you have a fresh FTS for us that shows the whole collection? :happydance:

New FTS as of today. Also a shot of my Acans. I picked up that weird black colony of them a couple days ago.

So unusual! What sort of care do they need @LongPig?

Nothing extra special as they are an omnivore. I usually just make sure it’s on the substrate when I feed and it goes for any items that land. It’s also a detritus feeder so it will pick it’s way through the books and crannies. Also I make sure it’s under water at all times during a water change as I’ve read they’re preset intolerant of being exposed to air.

I guess I may as well. These aren't my pics but I'll never be able to get good pics.

Hot damn, those are killer! Who took the photos for you?

 

We can help you improve your photos too @LongPig! I imagine you're shooting with a smartphone? Correcting the white balance is the biggest issue at hand, reef aquarium's actinic lights really confuse smartphone sensors, making the blue issue even worse. You can get around it with camera apps, or if you have control of your light's spectrum, you can just temporarily change it over to reduced blues/purples for photos :D

They're actually the pics I was sent for purchase. I have the VSCO cam app and I've been tweaking as I take pics but these Acans are so insane I don't think i could even capture the color properly. The pinks are nearly that pink when they're not even under lighting.

I see sticks, that seem to be doing well.  Naturally everyone is fawning over the acans.  :)

 

How are the SPS doing?  The Acans are very nice too.
