Oh wow. They must be really intense. I would think the corals would be fine being 14" off of the water.

Really nice look corals though. Your reef tank is coming together!

Added a Royal Gramma to the tank this afternoon.

Unfortunately he is being shy and hiding in the rock work right now, so no pics yet.

Cool Shrimp, I plan on purchasing one (or a pair) someday.

Congrats on your new purchase, I really like the color of the Grammas, really bright and vivid.

The sympodium looks like clove polyps to me. Are they the same thing?

I don't believe so - I think they are different.

I was able to get a better shot of the Coral Banded shrimp tonight as he is getting more adventurous.

Royal gramma's are great. Really interesting fish. I have a coral banded shrimp.. but I think it might be a different kind because mine builds caves under rocks and hangs out with the watchman goby.

+1 on the Royal Gramma! I added one about 2 weeks ago and for the first week he hid quite a bit but now he swims around with my clownfish all the time

Well, the tank is doing great. My royal gramma is still pretty shy, but I have seen him venture out a couple of times...

I am pretty sure my first hammer is now completely dead. I left it in the tank just in case something decides to come back, but there is no green left in it.

I added a few more frags yesterday and all is looking well. The frog spawn has recovered in a big way and is almost back to its original size. I also found a new hammer that is purple/blue in color. It is tiny right now but hopefully with the new lighting it will do much better and make it.

I also picked up some new zoas... some blue ones, and a single polyp of blue pop zoas (orange center with purple ring), and a new mushroom.

The jasmines have started to spread. I see some new small polyps developing.
I will post some pics in a while.

On another note, anyone think I can put an anthias in a 57? I would really like one but I am seeing mixed reports on how large a tank I need to have. LA doesn't match several other sources I am finding, which say most of them are fine in a 55.
