Just remember to always do the coral dip before putting in your DT.Whether you get the coral from LFS or frag swap.

You guys are gonna laugh, but, hehe, I pulled a real dumb move. My zooas have opened up and I ended up buying eagle eyes yet again by mistake. I screwed up the last time and did it again. Now I have 3 separate colonies of them. The ones I wanted were red not these but with the blue leds over the tanks I must have made a mistake when I picked them. grrr....makes me so mad, i really wanted a blasto from there but figured I'd spent enough already and it ends up I only got one new coral not two. Kinda of a waste of money in a way. :-(

I just finished ordering a small cleanup crew for the 125g, got 30 cerith snails and 20 nerite snails. I still have about 30 nassarius snails, 5 hernits or so and 4 emerald crabs so I figure that will round out the crew. Also got some red gracilara (sp?) macro, I figure to grow it out in the refugium and then clip it in the DT for the tangs to eat.

That's ok, it sounds like something I would do. It is hard to tell if the store has a different type of lighting.

Took some new pictures of the tank today, my Pagoda Cup coral finally opened, it's been closed since i got it on Friday. Looks sweet!

I put the new zooas i got yesterday into the 20g tank so i will take pictures of that later and upload them in that thread. lol

Some regular shots I took just standing in front of the tank, it's soo active now!
