Hope your back feels better soon. The yellow with green tips sounds like a cool one. Can't wait for pictures.

Thanks guys! I messed my back up pretty good.

The green slimer will become aggressive if it is near another coral. That is the coral that fell over and is laying near one of my other acros. I'm going to have to get in there and stand it back up before it damages the acro. I have 2 slimers now. I didn't really want the one that I got with the other corals it just came with the pack. I do like the coral but one frag of it is enough. I'll probably put the new one near the other I already have so they can grow together.

Well I found the camera and thought I would post a few pics. I can't stand up very well so taking them was a bit of a task. These aren't the greatest but here are a few shots of the tank as well as a few from the frag tank. I really need to do some weeding in the frag tank. I have a bit of Bryopsis (spelling???) it is almost impossible to get rid of and nothing seems to eat it.

FTS as of right now. Sorry for the quality. This camera does not have a white balance on it so I can't adjust the color spectrum.


Various pics
Giant toad stool (not so giant now)


Looking from left side to right side of tank


My silly clowns hosting in my duncan rather then the beautiful RBTA I got for them


See what I mean? Beautiful isn't it?

The only colony that survived the disaster. Pink Pocillipora. The pic does not show the amazing color that is finally coming back to this coral.


Wild and crazy ORA Pink Birds Nest. I had several frags that I just piled onto each other during the disaster/upgrade and they grew together. I set them in the crook between the rocks and decided to just let them go. I figured this could mimic what would happen if a storm broke a coral up on the reef in the ocean. So far they are growing like mad. You can make out the white tips.


Here is what is left of my huge Armor of God Zoas. These are looking amazing and were only 8 polyps strong when I put them here.


A quick shot of my mystery coral. Is it Undata, Confusa??? Who knows and I don't care anymore it is becoming a focal point in the tank. The pic does nothing to show the coloration of this coral. It is starting to spread on the plug and I'm pleased with the way it looks and where it is.

My ORA Hawkins Enchanata, I was so worried about this coral during my mishap. It started to brown out and I was worried it was lost. I've had it back in the 120 for about 3 weeks now and it is growing again and the color is amazing. I know you can't tell from the pic but it is, trust me. I'll have to dig up the pics of it when I first go it, some of you may remeber but it has more then doubled in size.


My Christmas present from my son. He picked it out all by him self, what more do I need to say. Oh it was about 2" tall when I got it.


Some Eagle Eye Zoas. The are on the same rock as the AOG and a few other Zoas in my collection. My intension is to cover this rock with different Zoas ans see what happens.

Here is a quick shot of the Orange Montipora Cap that I lost. This si a frag that I was able to save. It is growing nicely in the frag tank. I'm not sure if I'm going to mount it in the tank or break it up and start more.


This is a shot of the 4 acros that I picked up and mentioned above. This isn't the greatest pic of them but I can't help it.


A shot of some Zoas I picked up a couple of weeks ago.

It is getting there slowly. I haven't had time to do much to it other then regular maintenance.

I still have a lot of coral to get placed. I guess I will eventually. I'm not in a big rush as I like seeing how things grow and what direction I think they are going to go in.

Everything is looking really nice, I really like the new aquascape and the coral placement. Thanks for sharing the pics. I like that copperband. I have been looking for one for almost 2-months. I have been patient trying to find one that looks healthy and is eating!!! It is hard to find. I have only found 4-copperbands that were eating at the LFS. 2-had ich and the other 2-were a little bigger than I wanted.

If you can get one to eat you have won the battle. Mine I am lucky to say started eating immediately.
