I like my gold one. It is right beside my common hammer. It is more touchy. The common is doing great while the gold has retracted as nitrates have gone up...is my assumption.

I can't answer why the different colored ones are more sensitive, but it seems to be the case in my system. Same with frogspawn.

I'm going to try and surround my colony of hairy mushrooms the best I can with torches and hammers with high hopes it'll work as advertised ,...good luck with your quest also , after I get back from Hawaii I'll start looking to get a couple more hammers and torches., as for right now I'm trying my best to cram Everything into a suitcase , I also have to do my pwc tomorrow after work instead of Monday ( travel day ) as usual,.. I've got pre measured little containers of fish food in my freezer and will do a once over this weekend with my brother who'll keep an eye on things while I'm gone .
Fingers crossed that all will go well,...

Assorted pictures of today's snorkeling adventures ,... My favorite is of the sea turtle that came right up and looked me in the mask , I'm pretty sure it wanted to eat my nose ,... Looks like one of those pictures that someone who finds a camera up in Alaska and the last picture is of a bears nose coming in to eat the photographer lol

Looks like it was fun! I bet the sea turtle up close was pretty cool, though they can take a nice size chunk out of you if they wanted! Alot of that coral is bleached out.

That one pinnacle that I was cruising around comes from about 40-50 feet deep to within a couple of feet of the surface, that pinnacle does in fact have a bunch of bleached out corals , don't really know why the bleaching but it held a zillion tangs ,yellow eyed koles ,triggers and other guys too.
I've been in the water with a lot of turtle before but this particular guy decided that he / she was going to come up and say hi up close and personally, I had to actually veer away so we didn't collide ,.. That was pretty neat to experience , a very nice day in the water indeed .

Nice Photos Dart. Those tangs are beautiful and they look really big to. That turtle is funny coming up that close to you. I hope I can get to go back to Hawaii some day. Have fun with the sea life.
