My 180g mostly sps tank one year BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Well guys its OFFICIAL!!! My 180g is now a year old! I did though have some early success but right around month 8 to 10 all [moderator edit] broke loose. A massive alk spike, out of control phosphates and nitrates.
We are back on track and ready to go on.......!

A couple come back kids....

Superman monti


Just imagine that whole piece was an actual piece of pvc that was covered by it. I almost chucked it but decided not to.


Only chalice left, all died including a 10 eye bubble gum monster! ugggghhhh!




Here are some pieces that were not affected at all!! Thank God!!!

Pearl Berry





Odd angle but pic taken from the top is a sponges monti and my biggest acro, about 8 inches in diameter.

You should submit a pic to the monthly photo contest (in the showoff forum).

Thanks ryshark! the 8" acro colors are more blu in my tank. The pics always come out looking more purple. I think it has to do with the white balance.

Some new additions to the tank.
Picked up at MACNA and can't remember what it is. Not sure if this is a cyphastrea or not what do you guys think?


Ora's Tri color picked up at MACNA


WWC pink red millie, you can't tell from this over head shot but this coral already just two weeks in tank is already showing growth on the base and growth of new coralites on one of the branches. It is an aquacultured piece and still maintaining its color! Looks like it likes my 250 Radium MH's and will be a moderate grower.


Never had a clam in any of my tanks so I thought this would be a good try and keep your fingers crossed it is doing well and my flameback angel has completely ignored it!
