Agreed. just started putting mini frags into my 10gal 6bllue 6 white cree led tank and man they been opening up. Thinking about taking the crabs back out as they keep running over my newly acquired zoa frags. hopefully they'll pick it clean here soon so they stop.

I need to start updating this more.
Had one new and LAST coral purchase yesterday. 11 heads of blue rics for $30 was too hard to pass up. I need to add some sort of mechanical filtration to the tank, since I have no sand and no LR in there now, lots of crap just keeps blowing around and won't settle. I'm *thinking* about going ahead and putting the rock in, But I'm not sure yet. Also, I'm thinking of posting a picture of my aquascape, a picture of each individual coral, and letting you guys help me coral-scape..because I have a lot to fit in a small space.

I'm going to try and get some pics up tonight..

Thanks TC! That Joe the Coral is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Its coloration is awesome, I need to get a pic that does it justice.

Been awhile since I have updated. I am currently housing a small occ. clown and a hawkfish in the tank until their tank is set back up today or tomorrow. Feeding them has spiked my nitrate and po4 a bit, and caused a little bit of an algae bloom. I cleaned all the glass and did a 5g water change, rearranged the rock in the sump to fit my skimmer in there, and put in some carbon. Should clean up pretty nicely. I have been meaning to take a bunch of pictures of stuff for sale, I'll take some updated coral pics as well.

How'd I miss this thread? Great job on the LED's. Wish I knew what was being said about them...
Love your clam, how big is it? Why are they hard to move?
