Pretty neat. Looks like you have a few types of macro algae on there. Don't let it take over though! Unless you want it to. I wad talking to my buddy at the LFS today and he told me not to get any plants but maybe a shaving brush if I gotta have one. Said they are just too evasive. He said just get more corals! LOL. I might get a shaving brush but I'm not really set on getting a plant anymore.

Yes, I had a mild crash a few weeks ago, I don't know the cause but I lost a couple turbo snails , a porcelain crab, a frogspawn, melted some zoas, although some are coming back, and the tips of some acropora turned white. Scared the crap out of me, I did a 90% water change, ran a ton of carbon and wet skimmed like crazy. Everything is looking really good now, but I have a pretty good algae bloom, I think it will burn itself out in another week or so.

I also have a mangrove but I think I let salt creep kill it.

Could just be the picture but that looks like a large Aiptasia Anemone on the right side of your tank?

I'm not really sure what it is, it's some type of anemone, but not like the usual apistasia, this is kinda cool looking so I leave it alone, I've had it for 8 months now and it doesn't seem to spread (or really grow at all). I do have a few apistasia though it's hard to see in the pic but on the middle left in the dark spot, there's one partially visible in the pic, it's hard to see though.
I'll get a better pic of that thing and see if someone knows what it is.
