Spencer's 20 gallon Reef

Well it's been a while since I've posted any pictures on here of my tank or my corals. However, yesterday I picked up a big beautiful healthy carpet anemone. I'm so happy with the purchase and so happy with my tank that I've decided to show it off

Here's what I've got:
x2 Ocellaris
x1 Chalk Bass
x1 green carpet anemone
x6 Florida ricordea
x1 (2 headed) green torch coral
x1 bubble coral ( who got picked on a little lately)
x1 Idaho montipora
x1 dragon-eyed zoas
x1 blue mushroom
x1 what I think is a purple goniopora
x1 green star polyps
x1 pulsating Xenia
x1 (2 headed) hammer coral
x2 species of seriatopora - I fragged my green birdsnest a little as well
x3 turbo snails
x1 tiger pistol shrimp
x3 nessarius
x4 emerald crabs

Thanks! I picked up that Idaho montipora when it was pink, it should get pretty dark purple though. I've currently been trying to get some blues but of course the nice ones are hard to find. I was going to get a blue carpet but someone wouldn't sell it to me for less than $500 🙊 I picked up the green carpet for $20 so I can't complain!

I started in another tank in February and moved to this tank in April.

That's great. Montis are one of my favorites (love the rainbow & sunset). I think you'll get the best blues from acro. $500 for a carpet nem

I just barely got into montis but I'm slowly becoming obsessed with the variety!

I'm using one 120w taotronic. I have the whites at about 25% and the blues at about 35%. I love these fixtures so far.
