Thanks everyone! The tank is slowly getting there. Growth is really starting to show but it is a slow process. All those giant colonies I had in the 72 I really miss!

Wow, I can't believe the size of your RBTA. It looks like it's going to take over the whole tank! Is there any way to control it's growth (not saying you'd necessarily want to, just curious if it's possible?)

I don't know about controlling the size or growth but it can be cut in half but I'm too chicken to do that. I'm going to let it split on it's own. It was a tiny thing when I got it...

This is what it looked like the day I got it home:
This was after acclimating and placed in my frag tank waiting for a spot in the reef.

It has definitely grown like crazy in my tank.

Looks awesome. Your tank and neilanh's make me want to have a saltwater more and more everyday even though I can't at the moment.

Well I've gone and done it....The opportunity to upgrade my lighting has presented itself and I bit the bullet and did it.

I'm now the proud owner of 2 250w Icecap ballasts. I'll be rebuilding the canopy on my tank and reworking my lighting setup. I've been looking at doing this since the upgrade and I probably even mentioned it a couple of times. Well I couldn't pass up the deal from a local reefer. I'll be picking up the new ballasts next week sometime and work will begin.

Ok, so I went out to Neilan's today to drop off a couple of corals and run to a couple different LFSs. As is the way one can't buy something without hounding the other into doing the same. I picked up the following. I haven't put them in the reef yet so the color is off as the lighting isn't as good in the frag system but here we go...

Blasto, Acan and Zoas
