Sapphire was in quite the mood today. First she flipped over my favites:

 

IMG_20201209_161019_939.thumb.jpg.76f733cd841eb101c91f4ed9147a0736.jpg

 

Then she yeeted it halfway across the tank! 😱 :

She tried to continue her tantrum by flipping over the orange lepto as well, but when it proved too heavy to lift, she simply tried to bury it with sand. 🙄

 

Damsels. I swear. 🙄

 

Forest fire digi is growing: 🤗

Forest fire digi captured at different angles (varying degrees of blueness) with clip-on yellow lens filter: 🤔

Color is definitely returning to the piece. I'm mostly happy that it has full PE though! 🤗

It's shading the rainbow acans though, so I might have to move the acans elsewhere. 🤔

 

Milli with mild PE, but the greenish hue has become a *bit brighter:

Also, a small slice of good news - my bleached mini maxi nem popped out of a rock crevice today morning. It's still very shriveled and pale, but at least it is sticking to the rock. 😊

 

My only concern is that the crevice it popped out of is awfully close to my B.O.P. seriatopora. I'm not sure if the nem will ever fully recover, but if it does, and starts to grow, I might have to move the seriatopora to another location. 🤔

Just peeled off the small clump of GSP that was irritating my zoas and glued it to the back wall. Not sure if it'll take, but I hope it does. 😊👍

Something (?) bored through the stem of my blue agaves. Not sure what did it though, because the hole is perfectly circular. Thankfully, the polyps are still wide open:

Guess what decided to pop out if the rocks and come out in the open? 🤗 :

 

IMG_20201212_111746_169.thumb.jpg.bd4659340712d8ea70e247c8dc6e8412.jpg

 

It's still very bleached, but I'm happy it could stick to the rocks and still move around. Will try to tempt it with some mysis later. 😊

 

Also, Sapphire threw two of my zoa frags around in another mini temper tantrum: 😠

Did a WC this morning. Tank is okay - still had to scrape the glass and baste the sand/rocks, but I didn't knock anything down, which is a first. :lol:

 

In a few days time, I'll be picking up more things for the nano.

 

Will try to get more unique zoas, red & green monti caps, green encrusting monti frag (if available) and anything small that might catch my interest. I'm tempted to make a mini acan garden - but then I'd have to sacrifice some zoa garden space, so I'm not too keen on doing so. I think the only thing this tank might not have is a true NPS - but other than that, it has a bit of everything in it already. 👍

 

All three fish are doing fine - other non-coral inverts are doing okay too. Will put in an order for a Zanzibar shrimp next week, but not keeping my hopes up of getting it anytime soon. 

 

Also, I plan on seeding the tank with more macro taken from the fuge of my 60G - Prowler the little goby loves eating pods off the glass, and so does Sapphire the damsel. Panda prefers pellets or frozen. 🙂

Add-On: The bleached centers of my red hornet zoas have finally regained a bit of color. I estimate it'll take 2 to 3 months for them to recover fully. 🙂
