Brace yourselves, lots of pictures coming! 
 

 

Little Interceptor, the new baby male mandarin is doing well, eating and doing his pod hunting thing. He’s sooooooo cute!!
 


 

Karen the elegance was renamed Carole by the husband. He’s still stuck on Tiger King.

 


 

The blue/green leptastrea is looking amazing in there these days!! Already starting to spread off its base and onto the rock surface. Few other random tank shots.

Every single reeftank I've known of always hits an ugly phase or runs into a problem one way or another. Simply put, no tank is perfect. But I love your Evo - I think it's really colorful, and you can see some growth in here. Which is good. 🙂

Evo is trucking along as usual. Fed Carol a silverside tonight and she greedily took it. Dilly has decided to host the red goniopora in the center of the tank, and good to say he’s not bothering it too much with his luv.

Carol really liked her silverside pieces. All you can see is the little tail sticking out of her maw 😳

Don’t have any pictures at the moment but gotta say, it’s always nice to see a baby mandy fatten up and start to grow. Both Interceptor and Cruiser in the big tank have put on good weight. Guess my brine and pod growing is working 😊

The Evo is doing well though the poccillopora are bleaching. It’s strange though because the polyps are all fully extended yet it’s bleaching around them. Such a bummer because they’d been doing so well.

The Evo is doing well, with only the pocillopora riding the struggle bus. It’s bleached, but still has good polyp extension 🤔🤔 Very strange. 
 

Dilly is still in love with his red goniopora. 
 

The pinwheel plate is actually putting on some growth, and is looking great! The little brain coral also has gotten bigger and more full looking with great color. Got a baby frogspawn to take up the space vacated by Carol Baskin the elegance, which I loved to the 120g.

Also, good news in that I found an online berghia nudibranch dealer, since nobody nearby has any for sale. This poor tank is about overrun- the zoas are mad, the plate moved away from them, and the aiptasias keep stretching out to move and keep MULTIPLYING 😱. Since Dewie the file fish died I had to find something. Hope to get these guys in this week.

Good luck with the nudis!

 

🤞 Hope they arrive quickly, alive, and get to work!!

So, got six nudis in and split them between this tank and the little Challenge tank, and they ALL promptly disappeared. Not a single sighting. Dont know if they're alive or have experienced the nudi rapture or what. This poor tank is OVERRUN with aiptasia suddenly so I guess I'm going to have to get more. ☹️☹️
