I never got great PE tonight, but here's one I took shortly after going in. It has three branches and tallest is about 2inches or more, I think I got a good deal on it for $20??

Looks good! You'll get PE don't worry. Give it lots of light and flow! Mine loves flow

Check out what I'm dripping now! I'm so excited, I've seen pictures of these starfish but haven't ever seen in at my LFS. I'm excited about the gorg too but mostly for the star. There is another smaller one on it too but I think it's some other kind, or its just very small with less branches.

It's in the tank! So cool, Love it! And the second one that was on the gorg is a basket star too, it had started to open during acclimation but wrapped itself up again when I put it in the tank. From what I've ready they are pretty hardy starfish. Hope so! Oh and the gorgonian is beautiful too 😀I'll post a pic when all the polyps open...I know I said I wasn't doing another nps but he said this was hardier than most so I hope that's true.

Pic of the gorg open and the star at feeding time.

Possum wrasse is a camera hog these days

Thanks Paul! The gorg definitely has a very vibrant color to it. Unfortunately the star stays curled up most of the day but I've read that they may begin to open when I feed the tank.

I've got a new fish acclimating now...another wrasse, one I hadn't been considering but after watching it and looking it up at the LFS I thought It would be a great addition and nice color contrast to my other fish.

Haha! Here they are! Bad cell photos of fast blurry wrasses..but you get the idea.

He goes by many names, they had it listed as a solar fairy wrasse, but I've seen red eyed fairy wrasse, clown wrasse, redheaded wrasse, etc..

Getting acclimated


With the welcome crew


Exploring the tank
