man that tank is filling in so nice! you need to slow down and give the rest of us a chance to catch up...LOL 

So honestly, I have no place to glue these new frags. I stuck the leptastrea in one of the barnacle holes, and am waiting on some individual frag holders from OceanBox Designs to get here to hang the others up. I am truly, sadly, out of room! But that does mean there should be little to no more expenses on this tank anymore. Just let it grow.

Thing looks like a big blue booger. 
 

Caught some good pictures of He Who Has Not Been Named out and about. He’s about as happy with photos as Altuve his starry blenny cousin. Cruiser the mandarin isn’t super jazzed with pictures either— seems the clowns and PeakaBoo and the two wrasses are determined to photobomb and be center of attention while all the blennies want to know why I’m bothering them??

 


Oh and the leptastrea already looks AMAZING!! I can’t wait to see it start to spread!

That’s a bummer I love mine— and I’ve only had trouble with that one blue one. This is the second time it’s tried to ooze it’s way off the plug

Yes but I’ve never liked trying to glue the actual coral to stuff- I end up wearing most of the damn glue!! Like I said I ordered some neat single frag holders and I hope they don’t take forever to arrive. Got them for both this tank and the Evo for those SPS frags. Want to make sure I give those every chance to look good. I hope someday these zoas and those SPS frags can be split and moved to the SCA. I’m bummed my expensive and pretty trachyphyllia died while I was in NYC and my bubble coral, and right now I can’t find nice elegance corals to get. So hopefully this bunch of pretty stuff does well and I can move them over.

😬 but what’s your website? I ordered them from OceanBox Designs and they said they were back ordered but for this week. 
 

I am also deeply in need of a good teeny weeny glass cleaner/scraper for this little tank and it’s curved edges. I’m already starting to see some tough coralline trying to grow around the bottoms and those corners and I can’t fit the little Innovative Marine nano cleaner in that curve. Any ideas?

I think aquatop or mag-float has a curved algae scraper

I just had a blue ricordea let go of its rock in my 40g tank, now it’s MIA. All the other color ricordea have been fine.

I’ll have to look into that. The dirty glass is becoming a problem.

I guess I didn’t realize the point of boxes until today. I didn’t realize the things could decide to up and leave. I wonder where this blue booger is gonna decide to go and stay- I definitely have no room for a box in there.

I believe silver and gold have the highest wiz bang chemicals ...... at least every paint huffing dude I saw on COPS as a kid had either gold or silver paint dripping off his face.

It’s the propellant. The heavy metal paints had the most propellant to huff. The lengths people go to, to escape reality.

Okay need a name vote. My ruby scooter is doing well and he needs a good name. As he’s a dragonet I want a dragon name for him so my candidates are:

 

Glaurung the father of dragons

Ancalagon the greatest of dragons

Smaug II the golden (he does have yellow, though it’s a stretch).
