New stuff today!

The new acquisitions today were:
5 Red Leg Hermits
5 Nerite Snails
1 Emerald Crab (my other two died)
Multi Color Zoa colony
and a Kole Tang

The Tang is hiding in the rock so no pics yet but you can see the new colony of zoas in the upper right part of my scape.

I have also pretty much decided the large Galaxea colony in the bottom left corner will have to find a new home. It's just way to aggressive.

I traded in the large Galaxea colony today for some other fun stuff.

Here are the new things! (the mountain of Zoas I actually got yesterday).

The colony of blue Palys were just a blah peachy type color at the store but colored up really nice once they got into some good light. As you can see on the larger flat colony i'm still waiting for them to really open up but they look like they could be pretty colorful, we shall wait and see i guess.

I have come to the conclusion that i am definitely more softy and LPS oriented. I don't plan on getting more SPS at this time.

I was also able to get a slightly better pic of the tang today. If I come within 5' of the tank it freaks out and hides.

I think they are correct except the 2nd and 3rd pics. I think they are Eagle Eyes and Green Deagon Eye zoas but maybe the colors are different in the pic

I'll agree with those. there are a couple green bay in the back that i can't get a pic of right now and there are still the grayish blue ones that I can't ID. I'll see if I can get a clearer pic of them tomorrow.
