Some new additions tonight:
I added 3 black bar Chromis (they are camera shy still, so no close ups). I also added another SPS (a montipora maybe? ID would be great), some GSP (which aren't open yet so no pics), and a trumpet.

Here is a nice shot of the anthias. The pink has really started to come out a lot more since I put him in the tank.


A couple of the black bars made an appearance in this shot:


The new trumpet, not opened up completely yet:


A nice angle view:

And the token FTS:


The gramma is really coming out a lot more now... still hangs on one side of the tank, but rarely hides any more:


This "red sea" pulsing xenia as my LFS dubs it is doing great:


My banded coral shrimp... doesn't seem to feisty so far. I have seen him nip once or twice at the clowns when they bug him, but other than that, pretty calm... except when I dump in some Rods Reef food anyway...


And the other angle:

A picture might be helpful in ID'ing that SPS

My terrible attempt at a pic of the black bar chromis:


The new SPS (need ID!) and my blue mushroom in the lower right. The shroom has grown quite a bit in just a few weeks:


The new trumpet and the fauvia. I have been spot feeding the fauvia once or twice a week, and all the tentacles come out. Seems to like that.


The jasmine polyps are doing amazing. They are completely encrusting the rock they are on, and you can see all the new starts in the lower part of the pic:


The frogspawn is still recovering, but it looks 100% better than it did during the worst of lighting disaster. The green zoas in the lower left were also highly effected by the excess light, but they are opening more every day... I thought they were dead initially but now I have hope:




And just a reminder of how far this tank has come in a few months:



Anyway... lovin' my reef so far... can't see ever going back to fresh
