Thanks @Elizabeth94 ! My Hammer and Toadstool are for sure my favorite corals so far!

The toadstool polyps under the blue sunsetting  lights really glow bright

@vqreefer I sure will! I read that as well , I’m hoping since my clowns have been in the tank now for close to a month he won’t bully the original tank mates.
He’s my last fish I’ll be getting ,as I don’t want to crowd the tank 👌. So I don’t have to worry about him bullying anyone after him . Lol

Your tank to going very well..Once that six line get comfortable with your tank he will harassed the clownfish. I have couple of them in the past and all of them have that same attitude. Four line wrasse have a lot better personality and looks prettier.GL

Thanks so much ! I’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on the wrasse!! Don’t want him stressing out my clowns 😕. They told me at WWC that as long as the clowns were in the tank first they wrasse shouldn’t bother them , but only time will tell.

Got this awesome new little Blue Efflatounaria frag( I believe that’s what it was called) From WWC. The blue color is so awesome and looks really unique.

Lights dimming down . Everything’s closing up for the night. I’m loving the look this new gorgonian is giving the tank. New bright pop and good height. Polyps started to extend , can’t wait to see it in it’s full glory. 
You can see the blue hermit killed and stole one of my nassarius snails shells and is now hanging out on a branch.

My toadstool has not been fully extending but I believe he’s trying to shed

Hey everyone !

 

A little Update everything is doing great in the tank so far , I’m giving things some time to grow in now. 
 

However, my toadstool has been doing this on and off for the past week he opens up but his polyps aren’t extending ? All my other corals are doing great.

Full polyp extension on the toadstool .

 

And all my fish in one shot 😍🤗🙌🏼

My clowns are still pretty small juveniles , they pick on each other a bit and seem to be hanging out together . Will they most likely pair up if they’re getting along well ?

 Updated FTS. 
Everything is still doing great . I think it’s about time to start shopping for some more corals 🙌🏼.

 

Any recommendations?!

My goniopora is seeing some awesome growth ... but it seemed to almost lose its color . It is like a light pink now . Has anyone ever seen this ? Is it normal ?

Nice job on your tank -- been following it as I am building my own IM 20 peninsula tank.

 

BTW, if you take a knife to the clear plastic outlet piece on the return pump, you can shave it down so that the spin steam nozzle sits flush. I used a serrated bread knife to cut through mine in and it took a few seconds.

Thanks so much ! Still learning new stuff everyday as I continue on.

 

Also, thanks for the tip on the spin stream nozzle I’ll for sure do that 👍🏼
 

Your tank looks awesome as well I’ll be following along .

Fantastic idea @KMitch, just installed a spin nozel the other day.  @Theshivinator how you like that Current USA 660 wave pump?
