Everything is really starting to fill in! How are you doing as far as flow now that they aren’t little sticks anymore? 
 

That flame wrasse is super bright. The tang looks really good. Love gems. 

Thanks!  
 

I’ve actually turned flow down recently.  Running the mp40s at about 55% now.  I was at 75% but some of the acros have really weird flat spots on some of their sides towards the flow.  I am guessing it’s too much flow?  Not really sure.  I’ll see if I can get some photos of what I am taking about when the lights are on.

Here’s what I was talking about with flat spots on a few acros.  Hard to get a good photo.  No clue if it’s flow related or not.

I don’t think these montis can get any bigger.

Interesting. Some point you may need to add a third powerhead for more random flow. I was actually considering hiding a tunze pump on my back wall.

I am considering adding an mp10 on each side of the back wall, but I don’t know if the glass is too thick.  That and I need my frag tank to be able to handle sps so I can get rid of the frag racks in the back.  I keep trying small cheap frags in there and they keep dying.  Just got to let time take it’s course I guess.  6 months running now I think.

Facebook memory popped up today of the tank 1 year ago.  Unfortunately all of my birdsnest colonies died, so you don’t have that growth in the newest photo but still pretty good I think for a years time.

Thank you!  I really hope in the next year I won’t be able to keep up with having to frag stuff.  😂  Hopefully I’ll have my birdsnest colonies back too.

To me, it looks like my red monti is getting some purple in it on the left side.  What do you think?

I think the red/orange variety has ability to pick up some additional coloration if the circumstances are right....whatever this means, lol.  I've had a starburst monti right next to a Cali tort, as in the base flesh for both always exchanging coral slime, but no one ever truly nuked the other - and purple streak like yours started to develop.  I believe it's transferred thru contact.  It also started showing a few tiny green spots randomly in the center of the plate before i broke off the piece and traded it away to LFS (wish I had kept it to see what it turns into tbh). 

 

Now go drop a few tiny bits of that green acros on the red plate for an experiment 😅

Interesting.  It would be awesome if they actually morphed together.  I don’t know how they do it or what colors can go with what.   I have the green and red morph from wwc.

Isn't Sunfire a grafted starburst with the wwc green? I honestly forget what the story was with that one, I just remember it was a graft lol...

It’s the red starburst and whatever the green one is called grafted together.  Green and purple as well.  I think purple and red is a little less common than the other.  
 

One of My Sunfire frags.

Haha!  Yeah, it’s been on the rack for a while.  4” piece.  Trying to sell it for $50 here and still no takers.  I live in hour from KC.  KC people don’t like to travel more than 10 miles for anything though.  At least that’s what I’ve realized living here for 10+ years.
