Ready for a photo dump? I've managed to keep the glass fairly clean for a couple days in a row and that plus all of the beautiful photography I've seen around here has encouraged me to play with the camera and macro lens some more! Still couldn't convince myself to pull the tripod out of the bottom of the closet, but hey this is progress!

 

I didn't get a shot from the end of the peninsula in that last update, so here's her full frontal, baby!

Feeding time!

Yasha has gone back to never being visible except when feeding and even then is super shy with any movement around the tank so I had to get all set up and trick her into this one!

I couldn't get a good pic, but Lily got in a tussle with somebody (or something) again and has those weird white spot/wounds. I've decided to just ignore it, because she seems to heal every time. I'm guessing she just sometimes falls asleep near something that is a slight irritant/aggressor?

The orange ricordea bubbles continue to get weirder. I feel like that one bubble with the yellow dimples looks like some character...

Ooo maybe I was thinking about Admiral Ackbar 😂 What do you think?

ANYWAY... Next thing I need to trim down will be the mint pavona. I'm hesitant because I'm so proud of how big and beautiful it is, but it's just taking up too much space. I'd much rather have it be a bit more sparse there between the two islands. I'm also considering plopping a clam right in the middle of the pavona rock? Would that work??

Also probably going to need to frag up the duncan soon 😢

This is the mad raver milli 🙄 Looks nothing like it but it doesn't get much light. I'm hoping one day the tippy top tips might get enough light to look neat.

Kitty always getting in the way

Part of why there's always so much hair in my tank 🤦‍♀️ Usually it's long white hairs from my Great Pyrenees mix though. Not sure... this one might be human 😬

 Cornbred Rainbow Crush chalice is growing but still showing no signs of rainbow colors 🤷‍♀️ Apparently the original owner has a couple frags from this experiment that are starting to get streaks, but most are staying green and purple.

And I think that's it for the dump! Hope yall are having a good weekend!


 

 

 

Your coral combos, colors,  composition...everything is so amazing. And Admiral Ackbar is so perfect.

This is making me really want to get some NPS! Amazing video! Do your NPS stay open during the day?

I love them so much and highly recommend them as long as you're willing to spot feed them! The dendros stay open during the day, or open and close at random throughout the day, but the sun corals are closed until evening. Sometimes the tentacles will poke out when I'm feeding flakes or stirring up the sand (basically when they "smell" something yummy) though.

Quick update because my LFS biota court jester goby special order came through over the weekend and I just picked it up today. As long as it's not just acclimation stress, I think I might actually, finally, have a not-so-shy, open-water-swimming fish in my tank! That doesn't mind being photographed! I love it!

It seems like it's doing well, but after being in for 3 hours, all while I've been sitting by the tank, it got a little booboo on its right gill! Maybe just adjusting to the neighbors and someone took a swipe (or bite!) at it? Or got spooked by something and scraped up when darting and not knowing its surroundings at some point? 😓😥😩

 

DSC02788.thumb.jpg.434279237c12b13c1e29230ef3b86957.jpg

 

Hopefully it will heal up without any issue! 🤞

 

 

I also got a new emerald crab, two blue leg hermits, and a sea hare. Trying to put a dent in this algae. I've tried sea hares twice before to possible eat the tiny hydroids but they were DOA or almost DOA so I was hoping getting them from a LFS would have better luck. We'll see how it goes, definitely not planning on this being a permanent home though. TBH sea hares just make me uncomfortable! They are kinda cute with their silly fat bodies and funny little ears and things, but also just super weird and freaky 👀. And I think the negative experiences before make them seem really delicate. Just look at it!

It's just letting that poop leak out of one of its random holes! Why do they have all those random holes??

 

You can see its weird eye here:

DSC02774.thumb.jpg.96d1468c8fb81a86d99f52be13ec76eb.jpg

 

I'm not even sure if its a wedge or dolabella sea hare that might eat the hydroids. It had a darker coloration than a lot of the ones I've seen. We'll see how it goes.

 

That's all the update I've got time for but I did get this cute pic of Yasha and Maraschino hanging out together the other day:

DSC02648.thumb.jpg.5860c2d429ebbc92063bb64b6c23a77e.jpg

 

Oh and while taking those photos I noticed Maraschino is missing some legs! Hopefully they'll grow back after the next molt!

I've just got a rag tag bunch of spooky zombies and creeps and gouls around here 👻

Beautiful rainford's goby! I hope it adjusts quickly and comes out to participate in many of your amazing photos. 😁

Sea hares are pretty weird, yeah... but you should see the coldwater species! I've seen sea hares more than a foot long off the coast of California! 😂 Anyway though, I hope the sea hare experience goes well for you this time. One thing you can be sure of is that it will want to eat a lot more algae than you have in your tank, though... is your LFS okay with you returning it when the job is done? I've also heard of people feeding them algae wafers, but not all individuals will accept prepared foods.

Yea I was planning on only having it in here for a short while. Either going to pass it on to someone else or return to the lfs once I determine if it's eating any of the hydroids or not and/or once it runs out of algae.
