I got a 3" long gold midas blenny a few days ago and I am really liking this fish. He has very cool behavior. He is my second blenny, the first is a lawnmower that is fat as a toad and very, very ugly.

Thanks...worked as a photographer for years...I guess I retained some of my skill. Really love the Blenny. He is a great subject...he seems to know I am taking his picture.

I must have gotten really lucky the because my emerald gobbled them up. I put him in there when the bubble algae 1st started popping up and he was munching on it by the next day.

Truth be told....I had no idea he would eat it (pretty fresh in the hobby at that time) but glad he did. Was all gone after 1 week and he's still going strong these days. Ugly hairy little critter!

My emeralds ignored it totally. Most resilient stuff I have ever encountered. Much of it is coated in coraline algae!

Okay, got my eBay frag order today. Ordered some red meanie zoanthids, sunset zoanthids and a purple hairy rhoadactis mushroom (that is bright green right now). "Happyreefing" was the seller. The shipment was well packed and had heating packs still working as it is cold here. The frags were mounted on small glass tiles and banded to pieces of styrofoam in the bags. The mushroom was on a small rock and likewise had its own "boat." I liked that as it keeps the polyps out of direct contact with the shipping materials. They are on my frag rack now...we shall see what develops.

New frags and starfish today from Liveaquaria. Expensive, but still one of the best IMO.
A big rock loaded with Fire and Ice zoas, two sand sifting stars over 3" and a tiger star that is 5"
So far the acclimation process is going fine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

What's up with the stars? I've heard nothing but bad things about them. They kill the sand bed then quickly starve to death. No experience with them, but I've read that multiple times.
