Yeah, Josh (manager at the LFS) is pretty awesome. My Duncan frag has been very slow to to open, but it's finally getting used to the fact that fish are going to swim by it. It even ate a bit today!

*scratches head* Well... yes. As a matter of fact, I've taken several dozen pictures. And haven't been able to find my camera since. The camera lens on my phone is scratched up, so that's no good. Really need to find my camera...

Ok, so here's a couple pics... Out of 67, these were the least blurry and grainy. I need a new phone... and to find my camera!

This one shows one of the next to free mushrooms I got...

And here you can see most of the corals, including the frags, the Galaxea rescue, etc. The white blob in the back is my BTA.

Yes, I know. I have about 26 lbs, and I need at least 5 lbs more. My aim is 35 lbs total. But without a local source for dry rock, I can either buy it in bulk online, or buy live rock a piece at a time.

Picked up a few more lbs of rock, bringing my total weight up to 29-30 lbs. And... got a small rock covered with zooanthids and some gorgeous pink/purple coraline. Was priced as a frag because the vendor messed up, so super cheap.

Little update. Upgraded to a 45 long, and everything is doing really well. Here's how the Galaxea is looking today. Wish I had a Before pic of equal quality. The difference is quite astounding.

And of course, Bertha the Ocellaris photobombed me.
