Wow, you made out very well! I love that little Goby in the 40g. I am not much help in the coral department, unfortunately, I am only aware of the basics. I am sure Doug will chime in soon.

$100 worth of gift cards! Do you have any ideas on what you want to add with those? Start another tank maybe? LOL

the white "shells" on the body is call the septa and therefore indicating that this is a bubble coral. handling of the bubble coral should be careful. only hold onto the base of the skeleton and avoid popping the "bubbles"

Yep. Pearl bubble. I think they are more resilient than the other type.

Wow, thanks a bunch guys. I was thinking thats what it was but have never had one before so was really uncertain. lol I love that you guys know this stuff.

Not sure what i am gonna do with the gift cards, I was thinking of getting maybe something I normally wouldnt, like maybe a scoly or something. Also was thinking I could afford a tusk now for the 90g. lol I figure I will head out to the stores with the gift cards next weekend and see what they have.

So, went out to pump in some fresh ro/di water for the reservoirs and found a nsaty black substance on the top of the water. Turns out the cheapo powerheads I bought from ebay burned out and let all sorts of oil out when it blew. So 30g of wasted water. :-(

The monti in the 180g is still alive, I posted a picture below. Do you think it could come back? Its kinda faded....

Also took some shots of the 180g mushrooms and some of the other corals.
