Well, the pearl bubble polyps finally fully bailed out today afternoon:

And wound up next to my yuma:

 

IMG_20210125_173223_499.thumb.jpg.1b6b632eb6e6dc84ce57a5e4267b7e23.jpg

 

I poked it off the rocks using a chopstick because it might sting the shrooms. The polyps are currently on the sandbed. 😕

 

Red devil shroom:

The rest of the corals are okay. The cynarina is a bit retracted, but I think it is being irritated by the cluster of bristleworms that live under the frag plug. 🤔

Fishies in the morning today:-

 

Poseidon 💦 :

These are my top 4 fav. fish of the tank. (Don't tell the others! 😅 )

Finally got a few shots of Illaron this morning. Been a while since I took pics of him:

Poseidon & Orion: 💦

 

IMG_20210127_104019_882.thumb.jpg.b1c91f5270792d8e522d40392c3b7014.jpg

 

Poseidon in the shadows:

The Big Guy:

 

IMG_20210127_104159_762.thumb.jpg.f685050cfac2c93da82cba360db3fb1a.jpg

 

The pearl bubble polyps popped up again...and was on my pink yuma & stinging it. 😕

 

Moved it away with a chopstick, but maybe I should slot it in a rock crevice and see if it can take root there (?) 🤔

I managed to quickly grab several decent pics of his dorsal view today: 🥰

Loved the little side-eyed glance he gave me: 😅

 

IMG_20210129_100821_249.thumb.jpg.1cd0455f643f6bf575314743884ebad0.jpg

 

Quite happy with his progress. Tomorrow marks his first year of being a part of my aquarium. 🥰💦

Blue hairy shroom has lost a fair bit of color: 

 

IMG_20210216_104638_013.thumb.jpg.bde8ef79d17cb549bbad84a90a188d8b.jpg

 

It used to be a vivid blue in the center with yellow streaks on the fuzzy tips. 😔

IMG_20210217_104138_043.thumb.jpg.2a15941a561af1fcd248b99a63aced08.jpg

 

I think I'll work towards getting a proper camera in the future. There are a lot of details that my phone's camera misses out on, and the zoom function makes pics blurry. 🤔

 

Would like to get clear close ups of my dragonets - especially Illaron in his breeding colors (his face is ringed by luminescent purple specks, and my phone's camera can't capture this). Would be nice to frame a few good pics of the fish and hang it up in my bedroom too. 😊

The size difference between these two are quite remarkable:

Poseidon is around ~4.5" and very thick. Orion is <3" and quite lean. 😊

Pics of Poseidon taken exactly a year ago from today:

 

FB_IMG_1613643669937.thumb.jpg.3c91a16d6f86c9aac53735ccea179e24.jpg

 

FB_IMG_1613643680973.thumb.jpg.2fe1cb416e06e11e92e286e28bb8ab1d.jpg

 

Can you see the faint shadow of his lateral line back then? I didn't realize he used to be thin until these pics bounced up my newsfeed in my SM platform today. 😨

 

I'm so glad he has come a long way since then, and has gained weight, overall length/size and shown an increase in color over a year. 😊

 

Takes a lot to keep him chunky, but it's worth it. 👍

I managed to make a comparison pic of Poseidon's growth & change(s) in a year. Here he is, one year earlier (top frame) and last week (lower frame) :

 

IMG_20210218_195118_395.thumb.jpg.82482a6aa8db8c0a840464e4178d2cdd.jpg

 

This fish gives me hope that I might be able to train more dragonets in the future & keep them long-term successfully. I think Illaron, my male scooter, has changed & grown quite a fair bit too. 💦

My little dragons 🐲🐉 of the reef were all up early today morning:

Picked up an extra large bag of mixed macro to replenish the fuge with microfauna today: 

 

IMG_20210220_175130_520.thumb.jpg.35e465e8190cf8aaa9faf20491d2311b.jpg

 

Also picked up a very small, 3" sandsifting star:

Which immediately went into my sandbed, and was never seen again. :ninja:

Overfeeding this tank is necessary, but it does tag along with certain consequences. NR, meet my bristleworm army:
