Thanks. I need to get a new camera. Played around with my camera for awhile, but also harder to take pics with led's. Can't seem to show the colors in the pictures.

Ok so been about a month and I figured time to update. I like updating once a month just so I can keep track of it for myself. SPS part of the tank are doing pretty good. Encrusting and growing at a good pace. Hopefully I'll be getting a dslr next month. Hard to take pics under LED's.

I unfortunately lost one of my clownfish. Wasn't looking too healthy but I picked up 2 new fish for now.
- A tailspot blenny and a wrasse from Dom.

Adding zoa pictures for this. I couldn't get a picture of them all. Some of them were closed up so next time I update I will try to include them all at that time.

The little blenny:


Jewel Leopard Wrasse from DOM:


Here's a new SPS: Rommel's watermellon from my friend jose


This is one of the best blasto's I have ever seen. Orange with hints of green and yellow:


Orange Hammer:


WWC lazer lemons:


purple hooters (wow):


Tutti futti:


Strawberry wines:


SC Utter Chaos:


Rhastas:




PPE:


Pink Elephant:


JF Rainbow:


JF Bloodshot:


One of my favorites:


Emeralds of fire:


Darth Mauls:


CAR:




Black Hole Suns:


I'll try to get pics of the rest of the zoas next time: couldn't get a clear shot of the rest.

The algae with the blenny is red turf algae and hair algae on plugs. I stopped dosing prodibio for about a month and with overfeeding I think the nutrients shot up. Started dosing prodibio again and it's going down. I went away to the DR for a week and when I came back I lost one of my clownfish and that's when the hair algae started. But it's going back down agian.
