growth has been astronomical I've noticed a few of the newer corals getting ready to split , the dosing has made the biggest impact on the tank , even the zoa's have taken off they were growing slow now they seem to be spreading a lot faster , as soon as everything wakes up this morn including me I'll get some new shots,

Xmas in July yes indeed
got my coral shipment today , just got finished getting all of them in place
now they are all acclimating to the light ,
all corals were between 3 to 8 inch in size

1) bubble coral to replace the bubble coral my stupid clown popped

2) flower leather

3) chili coral

4) crown leather

5) finger leather

6) yellow button polyps

7) blue and green button polyps

8) star polyps cut up and used as fillers

9) assorted yellow , green , blue , red zoa's I split up this zoa as it was 6 to 8 inches to spread the wealth in tank

10) assorted yellow jacket zoas split up was about 6 inch

also working on adding more blue lighting

I got some picts but I'll get more once they all open

















Now I finally can say its full
tomorrow I have a bunch of inverts coming assorted snails along with assorted hermits, I also have a lot of macros coming, looks like most of them will hang out in my sump ,till my rock comes on thurs than I can start the 37g macro tank
Ill get more picts of the 90g after all the coral open along with picts of the 37g build

blue zoo out of California
I said to myself why pay so much on frags when I can get full size corals for the same price
that list above cost me $208. it averages out to $20 per coral give or take
and they pay the overnight shipping costs
the box got to me at 10am today over 1/2 the corals are fully open already and its now almost 5 pm
