OK, I'll stop feeding it.. it's been 4 or 5 days since I've fed it last so I hope it colors up sometime soon.

I have some progress pictures in a moment.. along with a couple corals i believe the BTA killed when it was blown around the tank by the powerhead.

And these are the guys I think my BTA stung. When he got in the powerhead and got blown around, he landed on these. I witnessed it. I think he stung them and they are dying/dead now.

Half of this branching hammer melted away.. will the rest of it live?


And, my frogspawn hasn't fully opened up since then. Is he on his way out too?

That is a nice looking plate coral! I wish I had room for one. I had my moon brain in my sandbed and it got irritated quick so I have it up on the rockwork looking quite odd atm lol. Nice looking duncan, mine is growing a new head too.

Then there's our normal light to dark green ones.
8ft anemones?

Only in America.

You guys have to do everything supersize don't you?

You joke- but I've seen 5 foot anemone at a shop in Miami. The guy has had it for over 20 years

Ready to put the moves on the coral beauty. Going to set the rock all flat that way he can't hide. I have some dividers ready to divide the tank, and two nets to chase/trap him with.

My question is, with the tank fishless after I catch him, will my beneficial bacteria all die? Should I dose small amounts of ammonia so the tank is ready when I'm ready to reintroduce fish?
