It is about 3" long by 2" wide. I saw one at a LFS today for $300. About the same size but not as pretty. It was almost all green. I think it was a good trade for an old heater I hadn't used in 6 years.

I have a DIY 6 Lamp 54W T5 fixture and use Wave Port lamps. All my corals seem to do great under that lighting.

I forgot to mention that I also build and installed a DIY Auto Top Off while I have been gone. Works like a charm so far. I will try to post a build thread later and show it off a bit. LOL

Yesterday was our annual reef club Frag swap. Picked up 5 free frags and one free colony. Because cash is tight I was only able to make one purchase. Meet our new clam. . I have wanted a clam since I started the tank. Got this one for $40.

Clams require high light and very good water quality. That is why I waited for 8 months to get one. The tank should be well established.

The club gave two free frags to anyone who came. Volunteers got first pick and a few extras, paying members got second pick and the anyone else who came picked from what was left. Close two 2000 frags were given away. Not to mention the vendors and members who were selling tons of stuff. Had a great time and a came home with a new 120 tank, stand and canopy. Well ok I am just storing it for the club until they give it away in a raffle at the end of the year.

This RBTA is taking over my tank. When I bought it a couple months ago for $50 it was advertised as a 4". Hard to tell from the vid but it is about 6" - 7" front to back and 5" side to side right now. Got to love it.
