Congrats on TOTM! I was wondering how I missed following your thread, and then noticed you had kind of a (ahem) long gap between updates :lol:

Hahahahhaa! So true. 😂

 

Thank you for the kind words, too, Teeny! (And also for letting me silently creep on your build threads, however the silence ends now. Mwhahahahahaaa!)

Welcome to the TOTM club. 😊

 

I can’t believe I missed this thread either. It’s so funny when a tank slips under the radar. Very well deserved. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Awww, thank you so much! It's awesome and humbling to be a TOTM - everyone's tanks are spectacular! I'm cracking up with the <fill-in-the-blank> and Dirty tank threads. Your GIF game is on point and your tanks are beeeeutiful!

 

On the other hand, this is definitely a blink and you'll miss it thread. :lol: All whopping 3 posts.... Gotta get better about posting stuff..... 🙂

Humor makes life sweeter. I have learned everything from this forum and the people on it, and still have such a long way to go. The posts and the little side conversations are what make life entertaining!!

Congrats on TOTM! I love that Natalia's bowl inspired you since I'm pretty sure her previous tank was a Nuvo 8 zoa tank. Also find it funny that I was the last one to post before the long hiatus lol.

And darn it @Legendary Corals, your Black Friday sale is deadly! :rolleyes: 

Also, promise this frag is looking better today - this was about 3 seconds after it went in my tank...

She did indeed! I had to dig it up. It was during a time I wasn't really active on the forum but I went back and read the entire thread once lol.

I, too, succumbed to the allure of the LC Black Friday sale lol. Got my first-ever acans, a fat ricordea, blondies and petroglyphs (both of which I believe I discovered in Natalia's threads and fell in love with. Not my first time trying them but hopefully the last time I need to lol).

Ooooooooo Petroglyphs! They are sooooo pretty! It's so funny how hard it was to get them for a while - I remember searching and searching, then suddenly Legendary had them again. :wub:

 

I hope Natalia comes back some day to see how much she's inspired us. And I really hope that sculpture bowl of hers is doing well.

Me too, both her bowls! The OG one is several years old at this point, I believe. My little frag of 3 polyps of Petroglyphs is looking fluffy, they were open in the bag! And my blondies came with an extra polyp and a baby forming. I've always been impressed with the corals I've gotten from LC, they are always really nice. I just have a hard time keeping things alive the last few years lol.

Thank you again, so much! I didn't know that peninsula TOTM beauty was yours! I can't wait to read all the details!

 

And that top-down picture with the coral and the bar bottom setup. OhMyGOsh! Wanna trade tanks? :whoa:

:haha:Fluffy!! They are going to do great.

 

If you have a secret for Blondies, please share. I'd had awful luck with those on multiple tries and they are so pretty. Will you post some pictures? Pretty please?

If I have success with these I will share secrets. This is probably the fourth time I've tried them. I killed the frag I got last month by dipping in too strong a Lugol's iodine solution trying to rid it of stupid coral eating pods (they ate my scrambled eggs zoas wholesale).

Yup, it’s been a wild ride!

 

I just moved, one of the easier tanks I’ve moved, but no plastic wrap and plywood board easy!
