Yep..first real vacation since I went to Riviera Maya about 7-8 years ago. Nothing planned as of yet Dary, but I hope to get a dive in at some point. A lot of relaxing in the sun is the big thing for me, since my work is busiest in the warm months and I don't even get a chance to enjoy the warm weather.
Yes I'll be going with my GF Maureen, who says "hello"

I'm really stoked for you two !!! ( she's a cutie for sure ! ) ,.... There's something about getting away from the world and just putting the feet up and relaxing that kind of rejuvenates the soul !!!
If memory serves me right this'll be either the 12 th or 13 th trip for Laura and I together to Hawaii ,.... Unbelievable ! Never ever thought I'd ever get there even once !
That underwater world will give you a whole new perspective on your tank ,..TOTALLY enjoy your trip !!!! Hi Maureen !!!

Packed up all the snorkeling gear the other day for my up coming Hawaii trip ,... Something like 10 more days ! Wow !..... Aquarium wise I picked up a 3x3 hammer and a torch about the same size yesterday and put them on either ends of my hairy mushroom colony in high hopes that maybe they'll be able to control the outward growth of the colony ,( fingers crossed ) , as long time followers may recall, torches ,hammers and bubbles have kind of been a nemesis for me , Greg was the one who had me raise my Alk to current levels and so far everything seems to be thriving well,..... I'm not sure how many months ago a I bought a Little bubble coral which has grown quite well and looks content sitting alone in a quite corner of the tank,...Once I return from Hawaii and if tank wise everything seems stable I'm planning on a few exotic torches and hammers to fill in a couple of little empty zones I have.
I snapped a couple of quickie pictures that might give you a general idea of things,.... The monti's have gone crazy and have created their own little sky scrapers which reach for the top of the tank., all in all things are ok ,...fingers crossedClick image for larger version

I think your approach to controlling encroachment is right on. Using more powerful corals to corral more invasive ones has worked for me.
Enjoy your trip!

So ,...... A question concerning hammers,... I love em BUT as stated above, I've have had mixed success with them over the years , ( hopefully tho recently I've turned the corner ) I've seen these yellow orange and or pink hammers that I really like but I was reading a few post in another forum that they are pretty touchy and even the reefers that know what they're doing have troubles with em ,.... Hmmmm why would their colors matter as far upkeep go ? ..... Anyone here have any ? I have a small orange and blue one 1 1/2" x 1. 1/2 " that seemingly has adapted well to the tank and so far growing well. I'd love to get one of the exotic colored ones but they're pretty pricey for just an experiment .
I'm sure knowing myself as well as I do that eventually I'll end up with one anyways but any input would be appreciated.
