Thanks all. :eek:

Matt, the Lamarck is brand new. Steve at WWoF said that she'd been there for 3+ weeks. Looks like when she was caught, she was changing to male (yellow spot on forehead, slightly elongated streamers on the tail) but I've noticed in the last week or so, the yellow spot is fading visibly. Hopefully she will settle in and be a good little reef citizen.

Dean, I promise I won't tell anyone you complimented a MIXED REEF (gasp). :)

We must now take a quick break from the fishies to bring you pictures of my warm blooded babies.





(I only have one of Cleo for now, so I made it bigger than the other ones)

As per inky's request, post-frag swap frags, a couple of other pics and FTS.


Nepthea from the last swap


I can't resist the blenny! :)


And again.

Okay, frags from the swap.


A. suharsonoi (from smcooler)


M. spongoides (from randy)


A deep water acro from Dr. mac. Anyone know a species?


A. millipora (from Ming)


bad pic of the pink tipped A. lokani (from smcooler)

Also a red with blue tips milli from Ming, pink polyped cap from alexpescado and a yellow leather from Leslie - all in places difficult to photograph.

And a FTS!

I can take one when the lights come on tomorrow .... I thought they were just the little polyps. That's what they looked like when I took it out.

What do you think they are (she asks fearfully)?
