Looks great, my sinularia was not nearly as neon. I'm sure that kessil will keep it that way

Thanks dingus it is literally taking forever to open but was almost there last night. Hopefully today it will be at it's full potential.

I also switched over to rods food and am loving it. It is like crack for my fish and doesn't really make a mess.

So here's an interesting story about how idiotic people can be. I'm at work today (work at my lfs) and this guy comes in. He's been in before and tried to buy 2 yellow tangs. Here's his stock: 55 gallon, 1 sailfin tang, hippo tang, 4 clowns, lawnmowers blenny and 2 chromis. I told him no and he needs a bigger tank for the tangs. He argues with me...and whatever he leaves.

Well he came back in today and in the past week he added a powder brown tang and a coral beauty from a different store (I have a strong disliking of this other store). Just blows my mind at people's ignorance. He also still wants to add a flame angel and 3 banggais cardinals...*head explodes*

Jesus! They will probably all kill each other plus die of stress. Thats horrible, but people can buy what they want. . I think he needs to be housed in a 55 gallon tank himself and see how he likes it.

Don't think you can do anything to get through to people like that, especially when most lfs are more than willing to sell/advise fish that don't belong in the customers tanks. All you can do is keep giving your good advise to the people that are willing to take it, and fight the good fight .

Oh and I'm sure if you showed them a couple pics of this rimless beauty they'd be begging for your advise
