No polyps in that pic, just the SPS, and 2 snails (the bluish thing is a snail with algae on it).

oh.

Well, the polyps are green, not blue... but otherwise it looks exactly like that. Is there such thing as a german green polyp?

If only! I think trying too hard to "fix" my tank made me have an aneurism and am now color blind.

I'm really likeing the tank fort!

It was funny, I was looking at your signature and saw an Anthias and thought "that is new isn't it, did I miss something?"

Then I checked your thread and there was indeed an Anthias there! It looks great! I see the Royal Gramma has become less antisocial too!

Yup, all the fish have been a lot more active and out and about. The anthias loves swimming through the holes in the rock work. The royal gramma is definitely out more and more, but still sticks to the left side of the tank only. He found a small cave/hole in a piece of live rock and has made it his home... he darts in there any time he gets startled. There can't be much room in there, but it is cool when he comes out, he swims straight up and down, and just peaks his head out to make sure the coast is clear.

My new little tiny hammer that I bought last weekend is not doing to great... I moved it a little bit today during my weekly water change to see if I see any improvement. Everything else in the tank looks great, and I am seeing some growth in all the coral, but particularly the jasmine polyps. There are at least 5-6 new heads on it as I can see where it has grown off the rock it came on and grown onto my rock work. Cool.

Tank is still doing well - most everything is looking pretty healthy. The anthias has really colored up some since I brought it home and has a lot more pink in it now.

The unidentified (birds nest?) SPS is doing extremely well. I swear it has grown some in a week.

Only real trouble is with this hammer. Is my tank just not destined for hammers or something? I moved it a bit several days ago, and it looked worse. I just moved it again today.

Awesome tank. I've been having issues with my hammer as well. Was looking great and now I can't find a place he likes. Keep sending us pics!
