On my journeys today i picked up a nice colorful chalice, un-named but very cool and it was only $30.

best pictures i could get, the led's make everything so weird looking. lol

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

Cool find Carey, Chalice do look pretty strange don't they! I like them, but like you said, any size able piece is usually pretty expensive. I got a frag about a year ago. Pretty slow grower compared to a Monti, but it's probably doubled in size since then.
Good luck with it!

I have the MOST exciting news! LOL

I just fed this tank some teeny tiny NLS pellets, mostly for the tiny fish and as I'm watching my mandarin starts freaking out. I've been on mandy watch for the last few weeks, I've become concerned that i dont see her eating the frozen as much as I used to. Well, anyways, to my surprise mandy starts eating the pellets! I'm like no way, maybe I'm not seeing it right but nope, she is for sure 100% positive eating pellets now.

I've been watching her more than usual lately, she has a nice fat belly but i couldnt figure out why she was so fat and not eating as much frozen as usual. Well now I have the answer. She is also munching on the pellets I feed.

I've had her for over a year now and she has been eating fine the whole time. I'm admitting cautious success for now. Still can't believe she eats pellets after over a year.....she is TOO much!

Yay, congrats! That's why she wasn't eating as much frozen! I saw a chubby one today at the LFS and was tempted, LOL.

Nothing special but I picked up a red serpent starfish for this tank today. I've been wanting a red one for awhile and $8 was a good deal.

Yay!

Went on a bit of a shopping spree today, one of my not so local stores was having a huge 40% sale. Also had Julian Sprung speaking today. All in all a good fish/coral day for education and for my tank!

I got a HUGE fighting conch for the 90g, hopefully nothing will try to eat it, the fish in the 90g have pretty much eaten all the inverts I put in. lol

For this tank I got a small torch, fire and ice zooas I believe and some blue zooa's too. I also finally found a nice green lephastrea, it fluffs up and looks kinda like sympodium. It's the coral in front of the torch in the picture below.
