Picked up some new frags today 😬😬

Recommended Posts

Went to the grand opening of the big little fish store in Dallas today and picked up some new frags at a great deal. The store was awesome and everything looked healthy. All live stock was 25% off 🤗 so I picked up 2 bumble bee snails at $2.25 each, Duncan frag at around $20, acan frag $11.25, and galaxea frag $11.25. Seemed like good deals to me

nice stuff! I don't think that is an acan though, favia maybe?

Honestly I forgot what the name of it was by the time I got him, it was super early in the morning and my dog had kept me up all night. It does have sweeper tentacles at night. It was either favia or acan but I think your right about it being a favia

Maybe these are better pictures, caught my halloween hermit named Freddy chillin by the galaxea not sure what he was doing but he didn’t seem to be picking at it. By the time I tried to get the picture of the favia/ acan (still not sure exactly what it is) the long sweepers where no longer out

Keep that Galaxea away from everyone. They are super mean with long sweeper tentacles. Mine is one of the meanest corals in my tank.

I have it at the very edge of the tank away from everyone. Here is a picture of it on the bottom right with Freddy still next to it. Yes that’s an sps skeleton in the sand I was going to get rid of it but Freddy (Halloween hermit) likes to sit on all the time, I guess some good algae grows on it that he likes to munch on

Here’s a front shot of my tank, not much going on even though I have had it set up since October of 2017. Had a few issues and lost some fish and corals. Now everything is starting to look good again and the terrible cyano outbreak I had is going away thanks to the prodibio nano kit I got for Christmas and some other changes I made

I found it at Petco of all places...... a little less than inch and was mean from the first day! 😄

Looks pretty good considering the issues you’ve had. 😊 I like the scape.

I like Freddy! He is probably being helpful and cleaning the new frag plug.

Thank you, since he is a Halloween hermit and I got him in October I thought Freddy was an appropriate name lol. He’s always cleaning stuff

I have a petco not to far that has a decent selection of saltwater stuff and a frag tank. They even had sea horses

So far the galexea has not had its sweepers out but the favia or acan has. Looks like it’s far enough away from everything to not do any damage.

Nice corals! 

 

It looks like an acan enchinata. Those do have sweepers they can get fairly long. 

 

 

Was your cyano issue only on the black sand?

Yep it does have sweepers. The cyano started in the sand and had spread to the live rock, everything is much better now

Freddy back when the cyano was really bad, he would work on it a bit
