I am looking at getting more snails.

@ Mr. X it was the encrusted horn, he has no more flesh, it has turned into brown gunky stuff which looked like brown jelly. He is still in qt. The elegance and coco worm still appear
to be doing good. The favia looks to be getting some color back but if he is it is not much. The 3 fish and 2 shrimp look like thet are still doing good also.
I had the same problem growing corals. But my Toad stool leather coral, mushrooms, long tentacle leather, and Kenya tree really took off. You might try growing on of those next as they are all really hardy corals.

Update

Carpenter picked up the stand on Wednesday to do a couple of tweeks. Would be easier to do them without 75 gallon full tank on it lol.

Now I haven't been on lately, but a few of my buddies here have ordered corals and are ordering more. Where are you guys getting them that they are not 35.00 apiece and up?

What is a decent price for a "frag"? And how "big" should ti be for the priced? Any thoughts on that?

Go to salt critters and make an order. They've got $5 frags. I'm going to order 15 frags for around 100 with shipping for my nano. Can't beat that price anywhere else.

We had our Frag Swap last night at the LFS. Even in our small community we had over 50 frags change hands for very low prices.
Excellent place to learn something you didn't know. I sold LEDs and bought frags. Got a Foxface Rabbit Fish who is very cool.

Our local reef club is having the Christmas party at the Atlanta Aquarium. Largest in the world. The aquarium will be closed and they are having a muti-course meal in front of the main display tank (the one with the whale sharks) They also have an open bar for the entire night and the behind the scenes tour of the aquarium. All for $20.00 if you are a member of the club. Unfortunately, I can't make it that night. :-(
