    Three for the price of one! (I've never had nems split before. Must need to poke them more)

    Yeah that's why I've got it isolated on that bit of ABS on the bottom. It also grows really slow compared to stuff like GSP or Blue Clove Polyps so it's not typically invasive. Hell if anything, I'd like it to be growing a little faster than it is!

    Easier to clean up detritus, and you can have more flow for SPS without worrying about turning your tank into a snow globe. Search for "bare bottom reef" for more pros/cons. I do kind of wish I'd gotten a custom cut starboad sheet for the bottom before I'd put the rocks in to look a bit more natural, but once the Blue Sympodium carpets the bottom, it won't matter.

    Gold Torch was from Ocean's Tropical Fish in MV. Only decent place around here.

    Standard mocha ocellaris. I've had clowns before (one was an ocellaris x maroon hybrid), but this one is the most aggressive one I've had yet, but only towards me. She leaves the other fish alone, and other than the clam and welso ignores all the other corals. I might need an acclimation box for new corals... 😅

    Nah, I think she's just hitting maturity and for whatever reason didn't like how those each looked. She is hosting the green anemone on the right side, and it didn't look like she was trying to host the clam or the welso, she'd bite/charge them trying to move them. Even when I moved them to the far side away from her anemone. She's also biting my hand when I go into the tank, lol. I have to have my poking stick in one hand to keep her at bay while I have the other hand in the tank. 😱

    New November tank shot. The good; Acros are really starting to grow and color up and I've got my dosing dialed in and stable. Started skimming again only at night and have had very limited nuisance algae growth. So really happy with the current state of water chemistry and stability. All the new fish I added last month are all eating well from the auto feeder with some mysis supplements here and there. The bad; The clam didn't make it, the blenny and clown harassed it to death. Never seen a clownfish mad at a clam before, but it didn't matter where I moved it to, she had to go attack it... The clown also harassed the welso so much that the bigger head died, and I don't think the second head will make it. Those appear to be the only corals she has it out for, ignores everything else.

    Those look cool, but what are you using them for? I must have missed that post!

    I've given up on my local places for fish. I've bought two sets of fish from them now and they've all either died within days or had diseases. No refunds or credit either. Worth paying the extra 5-10% for LA for their refund policy and pre-treatment for basic stuff. Can't wait to see more FTS of everything once the 2nd BattleBox arrives!

    Also got the new Google Pixel Camera app which allows for shooting in RAW. That plus the mobile version of light room have been a lot of fun to mess around with. Before/after of a RAW photo edited in light room.

    Currently dealing with a small algae outbreak thanks to basically doubling the bioload of the tank with the Anthias trio (which are settled in and already eating pellets from the auto-feeder!). Stepped up the skimming and did a dose of Fluconazole to kill off the really stubborn GHA that has popped up and refuses to die back like the others have.

    Yeah I'm not sure where I'd borrow one from either, so this is also my current strategy...

    Hah, I saw that piece today! Thought it'd look amazing in the right tank. 🙂

    Back from RAP with some goodies. Left to right; JF Slow Burn Monti, Bubblegum Digitata, RR Pink Floyd, and a Blue Oregon Tort. Now to figure out where they should go!

    Yeah I think my next big order will be with Adam. He seems to knock it out of the park every time.
